Playas Del coco or Coco beach, is a nice beach with black volcanic sand. Don’t expect white Caribbean sand here, as it isn’t. Is a nice beach to sit and watch the world go by while viewing the boats and pelicans diving for there catch.

Of all the places we have travelled throughout Costa Rica, we were very disappointed in Playa Del Coco. It seems to have more of a local vibe and not cared for at all. It’s disappointing to come to a beautiful place and see the locals...More

We had a large group so we need space. We found parking easily and close to the beach. Loved the area and beach. A lot to see and do within walking distance of the beach. Good food available right on the beach.

Great little ocean front town. Just the right mix of activities, tours, fishing, paddle boarding the calm bay waters. Safe community and friendly people.

We drove into Playa Coco from Tamarindo (50 minute by car) and it was an easy drive. We parked by the beach which is beautiful. And then headed on the Main Street where we saw monkeys on the trees. Stopped in to fish spa and...More

Playas del Coco is well located on the Pacific coast. The weather is simply superb, and when not in the rainy season, there is simply no rain and the sunshine is ever present. Having said this now for the negative parts. There is trash along...More

Compared to Playa Hermosa this place was very busy with many restaurant offerings. I really liked the promenade along the beach. It felt very European. We spent a lot of time in the shops looking for Costa Rican souvenirs and found some great things to...More

There are good dentists and a good emergency clinic in Coco. For dental surgery you will probably go to Liberia, twenty miles away. Medical and dental tourism is number one in Costa Rica taking over Mexico’s spot. A member... More
