Un oasis de sobra y placer en una playa
Dominical is a small coastal town in the South Pacific of the province of Puntarenas in Costa Rica, about 45 km south of Quepos and 29 km southwest of San Isidro de El General. It belongs to the district of Bahía Ballena in the canton of Osa.
The community is surrounded by forested areas, and its population is extremely small. Dominical is one of the largest and most important demographic agglomerations in the Bahía Ballena district; however, the population of the entire district amounts to just 3,306 inhabitants (2011), of which around 500 reside permanently in Dominical.
To the north is the Fila Dominical, a sector of the Fila Costeña or Brunqueña, which separates the canton and district of Pérez Zeledon, with a mountain range of almost 1,000 meters above sea level, which is only two kilometers from the coast.
Its beach, characterized by its strong waves and open sea, measures around 2 kilometers and is on the banks of the mouth of the Barú River.
