My friend and I stayed at Toro Blanco for one week. Our first impression was good: clean and nice pool area with friendly staff. The room was ok, especially considering the low price. But what really impressed us was the staff. They were always really nice and friendly, but most of all, helpful. For example, we decided to rent a... More

My father and I stayed at Toro Blanco from Saturday to Tuesday in May 2013. It may have been the most unique and satisfying place I have ever stayed. It is only one block from the main street and only one block from the beach. I don't think there is a better location ANYWHERE in Coco. It's far enough away,... More

This is a lovely place in a great location just a couple of minutes from the beach and town.

This was my fourth time staying at Toro Blanco and each time is better than the last! The property is located in downtown Coco but when you enter the grounds, you feel you're in your own home.
