North or South ?

Asked by: 20th November 2012

I am coming to CT in December and normally visit the beaches round Orzola in the summer. Is it likely to be more cloudy up there at this time year? I prefer the less touristy beaches and wonder whether heading to Papagayo would be a better bet. Any advice gratefully received…….

    Experience would suggest that the south has less cloud and more sunshine at this time of year. Also it is a little warmer. Papagayo would be your best bet but avoid the nudist section unless you are that way inclined. If you are staying on the north of the island, the beach at playa Honda offers a great deal of peace and quiet as all the locals are at work as playa Honda is mainly residential. Beach can get busier at weekends when locals are not working. there are no sunbeds or sunshades for rent at this beach but there are we,s and 1or2bars. The beach is massive and runs alongside the airport. Large car park available next to beach. Have a nice holiday.
