Esterillos Este is located between Jaco and Quepos, in the province of Puntarenas.
Playa Esterillos Este is separated from Esterillos Centro to the north by a river. To the south the beach borders Playa Bejuco. The village is equipped with a grass airstrip that runs parallel to the beach. Arriving by car in Esterillos Este one has to cross the airstrip, it's recommened to look into the sky before doing that!
An excellent surf spot, La Felicidad, is located in Esterillos Centro. The spot is named after the hotel that is located directly in front. The waves here are not as round as in Playa Hermosa but it's less crowded with surfers, too. Watch out for crocodiles around the river mouth that is located near by, sometimes in the rainy season they get washed into the Pacific Ocean.
Like everywhere else it is advisable that you ask about the conditions of the ocean and waves before you go into the water.
