(4.5/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy a true Caribbean ambiance of crystal clear water, vividly green plants, and beautiful sunsets in Playa Cocles.

  • Playa Cocles is a beautiful beach where you can take long walks without encountering almost none. Often the sea is rough and you have to be careful to the currents, but there are times where the sea becomes calm, the water temperature is warm and the beach is the award-winning with the "blue flag". Nice to see the local children surfing, official sport of Puerto Viejo. There are some beautiful Resorts.
