Best by boat
Playa Naranja is part of the Santa Rosa National Park in northern Guanacaste. The access road to this beach is purposefully kept in treacherous conditions in an attempt to dissuade or make it very difficult for poachers to access the park this way. The Santa Rosa National Park covers 49,515 hectares of dry forest, mangroves, and marine territory and is a sanctuary for a vast array of land and marine animals and plants. Playa Naranja is quite extensive, with nothing but nature touching it on both sides. This is truly a mystical and breathtaking place that is worth the journey.
