Playa Hornos is one of the oldest beaches in the city. Sometimes it is also known as Playa Papagayo, because it is located in front of the recreational park with the same name. It is one of the best known and most visited beaches because there are sun shades and lounge chairs available for people who want to spend their time leisurely. Its waves are calm and shallow. Every year Playa Hornos hosts the celebrated traditional Sand Figure Contest. This beach is easy to get to by the Avendia Costera.
