Playas del Coco

4.1

Coco Beach

A long-established beach community, Playas del Coco has developed a reputation as a favored spot for young travelers and locals to let loose by the sea. Offering one of the few beaches in the area with a tourist infrastructure, sunbathing, swimming, and other kinds of seaside amusements have become hallmarks of Playas del Coco itineraries. Sitting in a horseshoe-shaped bay, the town still has the scale of a small fishing village, but that all changes when the crowds arrive on the weekend. The town benefits from a burgeoning nightlife scene, centered around the bars close to the town's central plaza, as well as casinos and clubs. Playas del Coco is in Province of Guanacaste.
