Beach sights in Northwestern Costa Rica
- Sort by:
Playa del Coco is the most easily accessible of the peninsula's beaches. Its name is actually derived from the cocoa-colored sand that lies between its two rocky headlands, though it can appear a bit dirty at times, especially with the detritus of all the beachside bars. On weekends, the town is consumed with a small-time beach-party atmosphere; during the week, it's fairly quiet.
