We were a bit disappointed with the beach sand which is from a volcanic source. It is a very long beach for those who like to walk it. The usual activities such as sunset cruises, diving and fishing are available. There are plenty of restaurants with good food. Within an hour drive is a great Diamante Eco Adventure Park with zip lines, a wolrd class animal sanctuary and other activities.

Nice beach, lots of "touristy" shops for souvenirs. Nice food from the vendors along the sea front, and some friendly dogs!

The food and the service in Costa Rica is amazing. From a cheeseburger to lobster is always prepared perfectly. Playas Del Coco and Tamarindo are awesome places to visit

Not as described, we did some research before booking an Airbnb in del coco and it was dead wrong. The beach in Del Coco is pretty sad, it's more of a place for the fishing boats to pick up customers. It's pretty dirty and sketchy at night. There's a couple of decent places to eat but not enough to stay in that neighborhood and deal with the smog and filth. Save yourself money and find a place in playa Hermosa or playa panama less than twenty minutes away much cleaner and safer or go south to Tamarindo

We accessed Playas del coco by water taxi and were lucky enough to see dolphins and whales. Spent over an hour going in and out of souvenir shops looking for new and interesting finds. If you find yourself here during lunch, you have to eat at Soda el Jardin. The extremely fresh seafood was absolutely delicious - the Langosta Rellena and Camarones Gigantes left us very satisfied!

This beach is spread out and has a bunch of nice little shops and bodegas. You can find some relatively cheap beers, good food (though at somewhat higher prices) and some street vendors that make the place lively. Overall a good spot to chill and enjoy your costa rican holiday in

Many local shops on the strip. Buy your souvenirs here, they have the same ones at the airport and they are 3 times as much!! Fun trip!

We spent a couple of hours here as a break from our hotel. Souvenir shops, nice places to sit and watch people or the ocean have a drink or something to eat. Worth a visit
