Coco Beach (Playa del Coco) is well known for its popularity with Costa Ricans, as well as expats and vacationers from all over the world. Seeking fun in the sun, many people pack the beach from end to end on weekends. Coco has built great tourism infrastructure, and it is one of the most frequently visited locations in the country. Unlike most Beaches in the Papagayo region of Guanacaste, Coco's water composition maintains a unique blue-gray tint, instead of the area's usual blue-green.
The Leatherback, Pacific Green, and Hawksbill turtles all make their nests in this area. During an arribada, a large mass of turtles-sometimes thousands-storm the beach to lay eggs. By laying their eggs simultaneously, individual turtles increase the likelihood their nest will survive predation.
Affordable accommodations are also plentiful, attracting a number of locals and budget travelers throughout the year. As for arriving at Coco from abroad, the Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport in Liberia facilitates seamless travel to the region, and allows you to be at the pool with a cocktail in hand just 25 minutes after leaving the airport.
