    Of the 61 beaches awarded a rating by the Ecological Blue Flag Program (PBAE) only two of them, Playa Blanca in Punta Leona, and Langosta in Santa Cruz, Guanacaste-achieved the top rating of five stars.

    What this means is that these two beaches are the only ones, besides having clean water and sand (equivalent to a star), also have security personnel, signage, restrooms, showers, parking infrastructure and facilities for people with some kind of disability.
