Introducing Playa Naranjo
This tiny village next to the ferry terminal is nothing more than a few sodas and small hotels that cater to travelers either waiting for the ferry or arriving from Puntarenas. There really isn’t any reason to hang around, but if you do get stuck at the port for a night, the better of Playa Naranjo's two hotels is just 400m away on their own deep green cove. Hotel Oasis del Pacifico has a pool in the center of leafy palm-studded grounds, and their rooms are huge, airy, tiled affairs and are plenty clean and comfortable. There's no restaurant, but a collection of sodas sit 200m away close to the port.
