#3 of 8 in Parks in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca
Enjoy a true Caribbean ambiance of crystal clear water, vividly green plants, and beautiful sunsets in Playa Cocles. Frequent winds and big waves make this beach a perfect spot for surfers while the on-site surf school offer lessons for the beginners. Relax under one of the many palm trees or take a walk while the fine white sand massages your feet. The currents can be strong in some places so watch for the signal flags or ask the lifeguards when looking for a place to take a dip. Refresh yourself with some exotic fruit from the fruit vendors.

  • Favorite beach in Puerto Viejo. Nice place to surf
  • Nice beach. It's tough to go wrong on a beach in Costa Rica. This beach is clean and had good waves for boogy boards. There is also someone with surf boards for rent and lessons here as well. We saw people doing this while we were there, but we are not surfers. You are conveniently located near restaurants and other shops at this beach too.
  • Beautiful beaches, great restaurants, laid back Caribbean vibe.
  • It is an amazing Beach! Where to enjoy the sand, Sun and sea. Good people wave and snake. When that wind will cause many waves and it terna dangerous for children
