#4 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.

  • As we arrived on a day when it rained a lot, the beach was not looking like the Caribbean that we hope to find. But, nevertheless, it is a beautiful place, with hot water and clean and lots of waves. Good beach for surfing.

  • 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.
  • Incredible beach. Sand white and very cute. Excellent for surfing when conditions allow it... And the town and its people PURA VIDA... Recommended for visitors to the Caribbean of Costa Rica

  • Pretty clean beach for what we found in Costa rica. It is very large and at least has a lifeguard. Not be always, but when we were there were many waves, large enough and with much power. I would say that it is dangerous and I would not recommend going with children.

  • Beautiful beach! Be careful with the currents! The waves beat strong. At the exit from the beach you can see sloths! 😍😍😍
