Local Culture & Attractions

Playas del Coco is one of the oldest beach communities in Guanacaste province, Costa Rica. This area is also one of the fastest growing areas of tourism in Costa Rica. It has long been a popular tourist destination of both local Costa Rican citizens as well as foreigners. Playas del Coco is affectionately called “El Coco” by the locals or “Coco Beach” by Canadians, Americans and Europeans.

The Flavor of Playas del Coco

Playas del Coco is located approximately 20 miles from the city of Liberia, Costa Rica. Due to its close proximity to Guanacaste’s capital of Liberia, it has had historical importance. Local tourism was always constant, but the city really began to grow when international tourists began to arrive in the 1990s. Due to Playas del Coco being one of the few beach areas in Guanacaste with an infrastructure it became a hub for tourism and business. Other neighboring beach areas began to grow as tourism and population expanded.
