The village of Dominical is still a lesser known beach on the tourist trail and offers you a chance for peace and quiet. We stayed at the Piramy’s hostel which is just across the road from the beach and a little further away from the couple of larger hotels that can be found there.
The accommodation seems to be catered primarily towards dorms but they do offer some pretty good rooms, although basic. Unfortunately the rooms have uncovered windows around the top of the walls which is not great for keeping out mosquitos and other bugs. The beds did have a net over them but it was riddled with holes.
However, if you are looking for a beach front hostel and don’t mind taping up the holes in nets then the hostel is a nice little place.
We only stopped for the one night as we were headed to Uvita down the road and liked the look of the place. The beach is not ideal for swimming as it has pebbles and strong currents but it is almost deserted and offers you a nice place to read a book. If you are into surfing though it is an ideal place for you as we seemed to be the only non-surfers there!
