Punta Mala
Photo By Ryan Moss

  • Title: Punta Mala
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Costa Rica
  • Nearest Area: highway 34
  • Nearest Town: Esterillos
  • Brief Directions: Along the Pacific coast, between Jaco and Quepos, these enormous rock formations thrust out into the sea like giant fingers. While the tide is in the rocks almost vanish from site completely. However, as the tide is drawn out, these huge rocks stand 30 feet tall in some places and shimmer with the glow of the setting sun as its colorful rays reflect from the glossy surface. Algae and other amphibious life are found in abundance in this wet and dynamic environment.
  • Notes: Punta Mala/Punta Judas is part of a national wildlife refuge in Costa Rica and is overseen by MINAE - Ministry de Ambiente y Energia (Ministry of Environment and Energy). In additon to hosting a side variety of flora and fauna, the refuge's beach is a very important habitat for nesting Olive Ridley sea turtles. The public is welcome to visit the site but be aware that this is a working refuge and guests are expected to observe the normal regulations of protected areas. Also, the refuge is quite far from the highway and a 4x4 vehicle is almost a must to reach the ranger station, from where the rocks are just a short hike on the beach. Bring water and a goods sun hat. If possible, consult a tide chart for the area and plan your trip so that the sun is setting during just after low tide.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Gear: Tripod, polarizing filter, release cable or remote to minimize s
