The Beaches of Playas del Coco, Costa Rica

Within a few minutes drive of Playas del Coco, Costa Rica, visitors will find beautifully-colored beaches ranging from chocolate brown to sparkling black sand. 

In downtown Coco, Playas del Coco (Coco Beach) offers a beautiful stretch of cocoa colored sand framed by lush rolling hills.  On a typical day, you'll see romantic couples walking or having a picnic, local Ticos on horseback, families having fun while beachcombing, and dive boats coming in from their underwater adventures.  There are a handful of bars and restaurants scattered along the beach.

Playa Panama offers a dark grey sand beach surrounded by lush tropical palms.  With picture perfect views of Bahia Culebra (Snake Bay), Playa Panama is the perfect location for beach combing, swimming, and to while away a lazy Costa Rican afternoon.

Playa Hermosa offers a gorgeous black volcanic sand with sparkling gold flecks - and with its sheltered location, Playa Hermosa is perfect for swimming and soaking up the Costa Rican sun.  Visitors and locals enjoy grabbing a cold one at a few local bars tucked away a block back from the beach.

The deep blue waters at Playa Ocotal give way to a smaller beach of light grey and brown sands.  With it's calm waters, Playa Ocotal offers great snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities.  If you venture an hour south of Playas del Coco, you'll arrive at the trendy chic town of Tamarindo where the stretch of picture perfect white sand beach seem to go on forever! It's a great place for families and beach combing ;)

All of the playas (beaches) are clean and no matter which beach you choose to visit, you'll find ample room to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Costa Rica.  While the beaches may welcome more visitors on the weekend, these 4 area beaches will never be crowded.
