Playas del Coco

Located just 30 minutes away from LIR International Airport, Playas del Coco is one of the most popular beaches in Costa Rica.  Made up by several small beaches, the most popular being the one that gives the town its name, “El Coco”.  A nice collection of bars, restaurants and shops line the town’s main boulevard, which also leads to the main beach to form a nice atmosphere.
