Situated in the northwestern region of Costa Rica, in the area called the Papagayo Golf Penisula of Guanacaste Province, Playas del Coco is the perfect tropical paradise with all the conveniences you are used to.
Located less than 30 mins from the Daniel Oduber Quirós International airport in Liberia, and 5 hrs from San Jose, this historical and vibrant fishing village turned beach town continues to advance in infrastructure, attracting both local and international tourists year-round.
Stretching 3 kilometers from point to point, Playa del Coco (aka El Coco or Coco beach) is known for its water sports and fishing activities. Recreational & fishing boats regularly dot these calm waters, perfect for swimming. The beach sand is a dark gray-brown colour and the temperature is consistently warm year round with little rain. A winding boardwalk caresses the beach with water fountains, a skate and basketball park, beachfront bars and eateries, street vendors, views of the horseshoe-shaped hillside and a police station.
Visitors to Playas Del Coco will find 5 banks, 4 supermarkets, 2 gyms, over 70+ family-friendly and upscale restaurants, 24/7 medical clinics, car/bike/golf-cart rentals, a computer store, a variety of shops and dozens of bars to enjoy. Coco Beach is a safe, family-friendly town. After sunset adults and couples regularly take in its vibrant night life.
Playas del Coco is an excellent base from which to further explore other areas of Guanacaste or the country. Neighbouring beach towns such as Playa Ocotol, Playa Hermosa, Playa Penca, Playa Junquillal and Playa Flamingo offer picturesque beaches with sand ranging in colour from tan to white and pink!
