Only left El Coco Loco yesterday and we already wish we were back. We miss the serenity, the amazing healthy diet, the warm ocean and the friendly people. This will not be our only visit, we will be back! Can't wait! So impressed with what you have created in such a remote area. May it always remain as is, part... More

Just returned from a great trip at Coco Loco. Beautiful, remote, and completely buttoned up operation. To get that kind of service in Nicaragua is very rare. They were awesome. I was there for a quick 2 night stay with my girlfriend looking to surf the warm waters of Nica. The morning breakfast spread was unreal - I'm not a... More

I can't say enough good things about El Coco Loco Resort. I was there for a month for a 200hr yoga certification program and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The accommodations were perfect - from my cabana with its purple mosquito nets and lofty ceiling to the outdoor shower surrounded by flowers and papaya trees. The location... More

Peaceful, beautiful and heart warming are just a few of the words to describe El Coco Loco resort. I cannot say enough about the wonderful owners and staff at the resort; they were always friendly, helpful and treated me like family! While there I spent time visiting a couple of the schools built by Waves of Hope and their volunteers,... More

I attended a yoga retreat hosted at El Coco Loco. The Eco-Friendly resort is rustic with the outdoor showers, composting toilets and no wifi available but it is PERFECT for someone looking to disconnect from society and reconnect with one's self. I was a little nervous when I read that the shower only had cold water and I must say...this... More

I agree with OneGiantStep (who I met at Coco Loco!) that this place has something special going on. I happy helped my friend organize a yoga trip for 16 of us and were were not disappointed. From the great food served at every meal, to the friendly owners and staff, to the gorgeous elevated yoga deck, and...the beaches...wow. You can... More

I spent a week at El Coco Loco on a yoga retreat hosted at the resort. While the facilities are rustic (composting toilets, cold water, camp-style cabanas, and outdoor showers) the feeling of the place is what sets it apart. Staff are warm and friendly, the meals are amazing (something different every meal and the quality was top notch!), and... More

We stayed over Christmas for 2 nights. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. I certainly didn't expect to be eating a full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. The staff and other guests were all great too which made our stay extra special. The cabin was really comfortable - comfy bed, fans, places to hang clothes, mini... More

I spent the past month at Coco Loco for a Yoga Teacher Training and the whole experience was amazing; Everyone at Coco Loco, and the community as a whole, were so genuine and truly wanted you to have the best experience possible. The owners have tremendous dedication to the community and to sustainability. While we were there, we were able... More

My partner and I spent one week at El coco loco in August 2014. I took the yoga package and my partner took the surf package. He didn't need board hire or surf lessons but the staff organized to drop him off at the surf spots nearby (the boom) or organise boat trips to the other spots nearby as he... More
