Just a quick trip across the bay, this small beach offers a prime view of Golfito, with the rainforest as a backdrop. If you get stuck in Golfito, Playa Cacao is probably the most pleasant spot to spend the day. To reach the beach, catch a water taxi from Golfito for around US$6 per person. You can also get to Playa Cacao by taking the 6km dirt road west and then south from the airport – a 4WD is recommended.
