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. Find what you're looking for from your Playas del Coco holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Costa Rica trip planning app.
