Quite possibly the best beach in Central America. A largely calm cove with so much life: a dry tropical forest, a cacophony of birds, reptiles, and if you're lucky you'll get to see either turtles coming in to lay their eggs or the release of newly hatched turtles (the park moves the nests to a an enclosure to protect them...

We stayed as a couple in a bungalow. The room was spacious, with a television, air conditioner, open kitchen with a fridge, purified water, cooking range. There also was a small outdoor patio and a common outdoor wading pool. This would be perfect for a young family but we appreciated the conveniences! The beach is simply breathtaking - half mile...

Spent a day at Puesto del Sol at Parque Maritimo El Coco and what a find. Gorgeous beach setting with a pool and restaurant, free use if you patronize. Pool was refreshing and overlooks one of Nicaragua's best beaches. There are nice restrooms and even a gift shop!

We arrived without a booking and were given a range of options from $222 per night to $45 per night. We chose the $45 which was like a cupboard under the $222 room! The $222 room is simply not worth the dosh. Its ok but you deal with the same scabby paths and "gardens" as you do with the $45...

I write this review from the perspective of having paid way too much per night ($350) in one of the Los Volcanes bungalows. At that price, my expectations become very high. This would have been considered a wonderful rustic beach accommodation, but instead we left wondering if it was worth it. Overall, the location and beach is what saved this...

It's OK, old, dated. Had to ask them to provide a cover for the bed, air con dripped, screen was ripped. If we had known we would only go to Playa Coco with a house rental, not taken rooms through Parque Maritimo. Maybe other options they offer are better. We were in a Bungalow, which I definitely wouldn't return to....

Absolutely awesome. Turtle conservation on site. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, white sand, and very good waves. The beach is 2 kilometers away from playa la flor, which has mass nesting of Olive Ridley "paslama" turtle between July and December. Visiting Paseo Pacifico (turtle conservation) is an absolute must!

Had a wonderful one night stay at Parque Maritimo el Coco. The beach is paradise. The restaurant is very good. Stayed in the Casa Tortuga with a group of 10 (I would recommend 8 max). House was very nice with all the basic amenities. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just 18 kilometers south of San Juan del Sur is situated Parque Maritimo el Coco, a resort specially conceived to allow our visitors to relax in a peaceful environment, in direct contact with nature. The resort - of category III - offers lodging in houses of different design). A characteristic of this resort consists in its location in plain nature, where since 1994 have ben constructed houses under the roof oft trees. The resort's administration wants to conserve these natural surroundings, which offer the suited hiding places for many wild animals like squirrels, skunks, iguanas, garrobos, etc. During October and November herds of hauler monkeys visit the resort, attracted by the fruits of jobos. You can watch birds like urracas, colibris, woodpeckers, small parrots and many others because we respect nature's biological rhythmus. The growing of the trees during the rainy season is part of this rhythmus, the falling of there dry leafs and branches is part of the rhythmus, too. These branches y leafs are not garbage, but important natural dung. Furthermore they help to keep humid the soil retaining the water, the main source of life, in the ground. We invite our guests to immerse into nature witch surrounds the hotel, to enjoy healthy vacations in harmony with the environment. The extended grounds, that surround each house, are another characteristic of this resort. They guarantee privacy y extensive playground so that parents can supervise children easily. It is the perfect spot for couples or whole families, because our beach allows a safe and enjoying swim. We offer different lodging options, from small bungalows to large houses: - Apartments located directly on the coast, which invite you to take an early morning swim or to jog on the 1 km long, sandy beach - Bungalows on a gently hill at about 200 m from the seashore with a terrace in the middle of treetops, a place perfectly suited to watch birds - Houses on top of hills with outstanding sea view, about 100 to 200 m from the shore. All lodgings are equipped with fully furnished kitchens. In the Mini Super, at the entrance of the resort, you will find all you need to prepare a good meal. To allow the kook to enjoy vacations too, you can visit the nearby restaurant "Puesta del Sol", right on the shore. While parents savor a sundowner looking in astonishment at the spectacular sunset, less contemplative youngsters might enjoy plying beach ball, frisbee, volleyball, table soccer, billiard or dive into the pool. Excursions: We recommend visiting by horse or bicycle the nearby villages. On the way you might encounter hordes of howler monkeys, and other sylvatic animals. Very friendly and poor agricultural workers will be happy to invite you to participate on their cultural activities like worships. At night you can visit "Playa la Flor", a sanctuary for endangered marine turtles. On nesting periods of the marine turtle "Paslama" (Lepidochelys oliveacea) you can observe up to 20,000 turtles on a period of four days. During the day you can take a boat tour nearby, where marine turtles can be seen mating. With a bit of luck you can see dolphins or even whales on some periods of the year. Another tour you can take is to "Bolanos" island on the boundaries of Costa Rica and Nicaragua, a sanctuary for frigate birds (Fregata magnificens) and other marine birds like pelicans. You can climb to the nesting sites and observe the brooding of different kinds of birds. ... more   less
