Playa Ventanas is the closest beach to Buenos Aires that tourists visit. Paid parking is enforced here but it's inexpensive (price per car was ₡2000 in early 2021).
There is a small parking fee. Low tide is best to explore the beautiful caves. There are also tents, chairs for rent and multiple vendors selling food & refreshments. This beach can get busy on the weekends and is best visited in the morning, sunset or during the week.
Fun beach with caves. Buy a cold coconut (add a little rum from your stash) and NOW you're on vacation! you can even rent a hammock for a bit.
