If you are looking to travel to Costa Rica and touch the southern beaches on Nica's Pacific coast, Coco Beach is ideal for adventurers and wildlife lovers, surfers and fishermen; and everybody looking for a relaxing timeout.
From San Juan del Sur, it's a great adventure to get in an SUV and go off-roading south to Coco Beach. The private beach is about 30 minutes away and the dirt road is uphill, windy, washed out, and you'll probably pass large animals on the side of the roads hanging out in the jungle. We went to visit friends who had a condo in the Townhomes, however there is also a hotel on the other end of the beach La Veranera.
This beach was mostly deserted and has extremely soft white sands-a little different than the beach at San Juan del Sur. Which are a little more textured, and are nearer to a marina and the fishing boats.
This is a gorgeous, remote spot to see the sunset west over the Pacific, as Costa Rica is to your south and Nica to your north.
