Make a self catering condo or holiday rental in Playa del Coco, Costa Rica your home away from home

Playa del Coco is one of Guancaste’s loveliest and most accessible beaches on the north Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The small town has plenty of activities making this a great base for exploring the beauty of the area.

Things to Do in Playa del Coco, Costa Rica

Guests staying in holiday rentals in Playa del Coco will want to spend time on the horseshoe-shaped bay beneath the cliffs. Swimming, surfing, sunbathing and water sports are all part of the scene. Scuba diving is the most popular sport in this area, seeing marine life such as turtles, octopus and sharks off the Catalina and Bat Islands. There are plenty of boats in the bay offering boat trips to the Pelonas Islands nearby or fishing excursions with an experienced captain. River rafting, rainforest hikes along forested trails and volcano tours are all available. By day the town offers shopping, cafés and markets and after dark there is a good party nightlife around the central plaza, particularly during local holidays such as Christmas and Easter.

Surfers will find their Playa del Coco holiday rental is the ideal gateway to surfing areas such as Ollie’s Point and Witches Rock that offer prime surfing. It is worth visiting the Marino Las Baulas National Park where visitors may see mass turtle nesting of the endangered Leatherback, Pacific Green and Hawksbill turtles. The Palo Verde National Park and Guatil Pottery can be explored or spend the day visiting the Tenorio Volcano National Park. It is home to the Rio Celeste with its strangely coloured pool and waterfall, a result of the dissolved minerals from the volcano. It also has several hot springs for bathing in the dry season.

really appreciated

4 of 5
Very clean and comfortable; very well located near the beach, shops, grocery and village. Security is also something that we appreciated as there is somebody near the locked gate
