Coco Beach

Explore the depths of the ocean with your snorkel and fly through the treetops of the jungle on a zip line in this picturesque beach town.

The charming coastal town of Coco Beach (Playas del Coco) is known for its bars, restaurants and picturesque stretches of sand. Its clear waters are a haven for divers and the surrounding jungle is home to intriguing Costa Rican wildlife. The clubs and casinos in the downtown area provide a lively nightlife atmosphere. Spend the afternoon zip-lining through a maze of trees or sunbathing at the beach. In the evening, relax with a drink at the bars downtown.

There are many tour operators in the area that take travelers on unforgettable journeys through unusual terrain. Try zip-lining to fly through the jungle like a bird. Take a horse ride from the Haras del Mar Equestrian Center along the beach. Capture photos of the mountains and forests beyond the sand and sea.

Go diving or snorkeling in the clear ocean water to see colorful fish right in front of your eyes. On certain tours, you can get close to sharks, rays and other fearsome creatures. Take a sailing course around the small islands offshore. If you’re lucky, turtles, whales and dolphins will swim within view.

Make your way to Coco Beach in the afternoon to take advantage of the sunny weather. Sip from a large coconut as you relax on the sand. Build sandcastles and search for treasure with the kids. Admire the rugged coastline and picturesque rocky cliffs.

Dine at one of the restaurants downtown for typical Costa Rican specialties that include rice, beans, corn tortillas and tropical fruits. Enjoy some local guaro liquor and dance to traditional folk music. Several hotels offer casino services, where you can try your luck on the slot machines.

The town of Coco Beach lies on the North Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, 23 miles (37 kilometers) west of Liberia. A scenic coastal drive from Liberia should take a little over 1 hour. Panama Beach and Hermosa Bay Beach can be found just north of the small oceanfront town. Liberia International Airport is just 30 minutes away by car.
