Dominical is a beach-front town, situated on the South Pacific Coast, just 45km south of Quepos and 35km west of San Isidro de General. Once a small fishing village, the town is now home to a thriving and friendly community of both locals and foreigners. It is known mainly as a surf spot, but also offers nice hiking and ecotourism options. The road that goes from Dominical along the pacific beach to the south, is a nice drive (unpaved, but usually in fair condition) which passes through lots of beautiful beaches, some national parks, small villages and past a few hotels and cabins.

The waves in dominical are strong and suitable for advanced surfers. It is known that there are strong rip currents, so swimming should be done only after questioning the locals about the place and time. The village itself, being more remote, has a more tranquil and friendly atmosphere than other more touristy beach towns, like Jaco, Manuel Antonio, or Puerto Viejo. surfing in dominical  is a wonderful experience, but make sure you know your limits and check the tide so you won't try surfing low tide.
