Introducing Playa Ocotal
Coming from the South, this is the last gasp of semi-rustica on the peninsula. The beach is gray and wooded, and the northernmost corner is quite picturesque. It's about 4km southwest of Playa del Coco by paved road, and aside from a few privately owned villas (which are mostly rented as vacation houses), there isn’t an actual town here, though it’s close enough to Coco for you to either drive or take a leisurely stroll here along the road. It's worth a trip simply to eat at Father Rooster's.
