There is no better place to stay for the best combination of fun and relaxation all in one place!

We are located a leisurely 5 minute walk to the beach, and the main Playa Grande surfing break is right there too.

Also downstairs, is located the famous Frijoles Locos Surf Shop where you can find souvenir t-shirts to take home, line up a surf lesson, surfboard rental, body board rentals, SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) rentals or lessons, cooler rental, beach chair rental, tours and activities reservations, and know that there is someone onsite from 9am to 6pm each day to answer any questions you may have during your stay.

This truly is a vacation rental that offers so much more! Not a resort or hotel, and not your average Playa Grande vacation rental choice!

Guests receive a discount in the Frijoles Locos Surf Shop for surf lessons, surfboard rentals and everything you need for the beach. Save time by asking us about the different tours and activities such as Palo Verde National Park tours, Hacienda Guachipelin One Day Adventures, zip-lining, horseback riding, sunset sailing and snorkeling tours, Hacienda Pinilla Beach Club, scuba diving excursions, day trips to other nearby beaches such as Playa Danta, Playa Conchal, Playa Avellanas and more…

    Costa Rica Playa Grande Trip Advisor Reviews

    Frijoles Locos – 5 Star service and hospitality

    Playa Grande was just what the doctor ordered and our stay at Frijoles Locos was our medicine. Our family of five was warmly welcomed by owner, Drew, and manager, Jeannette, and their genuine care and hospitality extended throughout our stay – nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to look after us – they are absolutely top notch individuals and made staying at Frijoles Locos really special.

    The apartment is situated above a great little surf shop, only a few minutes walk from the beach (even with surfboards and kids). The living room is spacious, the bedrooms (and beds) are comfortable, the kitchen is a good size and well stocked with cooking implements making meal prep really easy – important for us as we were travelling on a budget. There are two bathrooms, with nice toiletries supplied and a good size balcony/ terrace with a BBQ and a table for hanging out with a drink as well as lounges for reading/ sunbaking. The pool was a welcome respite from the afternoon heat and the whole family enjoyed a splash. Even with a bustling surf shop downstairs, the apartment was not noisy and still felt private.

    Thank you for everything – we highly recommend this apartment and wish Drew and the team the best of success with the business.
