Dominical is my happy place. There are many happy places to be savored in Costa Rica, and many beaches with my footprints seared across the sand. It would be hard to pick my favorite beach: Ventenas has mysterious sea caves that sound like the whole ocean is trapped inside them, Whale's Tail has a secret tail, (depending on the tide) Baru Beach is remote, infinite and wild, Dominicalito is full of playful tide pools, rustic fishing boats and weathered wood and rocks, Dominical is home to surfers and playful dogs.
I like to sample them all.

I've barely scratched the sand of our last trip.
