Came here for a wedding. I'm a picky traveller - I'm sensitive to how travel impacts the local economy. I was really impressed with the relationship that this resort has with the community - a real commitment to sustainability and local leadership. Bonus: it's clean, beautiful, private, peaceful and the food is delicious. I read that food was delicious before... More

My family and I just completed a week at El Coco Loco, which was a follow-up to a perfect week spent there in 2013. It was an exceptional experience. The setting is gorgeous. The cabanas are beautiful, with thatched roof and a charming little porch. They are located close enough to the beach that you hear the waves when you... More

What an incredible, inspiring, thoughtful, fun, and wonderful place to travel to. I have been lucky to travel to El Coco Loco twice for service trips, but am counting the minutes until I can get back there again. El Coco Loco is a little piece of paradise in this crazy world. Their staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, Jamie and... More

I stayed at this resort during my yoga teaching program held by Kimberly Waugh at Radiant life yoga school 200 hours. I was in contact with Jamie Collum due to questions concerning practical matters and he was always so friendly and helpful. The resort is basically 1-2 minutes from the beach. The cabanas are simple but offers mosquitonet, light and... More

We just got back from Coco Loco and we are missing it deeply. We had great food, great surfing and we had a great family adventure. The entire staff made our stay one of the most fun and most relaxing vacations we have ever had. My wife loved the yoga, my 11 year old daughter loved riding horses on the... More

Food: the menu was broad so we had different food everyday...all delicious...the idea of a second breakfast rocked my world and the dessert never disappointed. meals were spent at a... More

Our stay was too short, but everything about being at El Coco was GREAT! The food was fabulous, the scenery was breathtaking and of all the staff and guests were just the BEST! Thank you Ben,Christina,Ben,Jamie,Holly and all of the staff for a relaxing, restorative weekend. We hope to come back sometime for a longer stay. Bob, Gail & Dick

AMAZING experience once again. Visited at the end of January for 2 weeks, my third visit. I can't say enough good things about this place. Food is SO DELICIOUS, wish I could replicate every single meal (and snack and dessert) we ate there. Beach is gorgeous, whether you want to swim, surf or tan. Poolside is so relaxing, love the...

Where to start... this was the most peaceful week of my life. Totally off the beaten path, El Coco Loco is paradise. The food! All of these reviews rave about it and mine will be no different. In fact, I kept a running list of every meal just so I'll never forget: fresh ceviche, fresh fruit, fresh guacamole (everything is... More

My 10 yr old son and I just got back from a week at El Coco Loco. The owners (we met Ben and Jamie) couldn't have been more gracious, interesting and available. They set us up with perfect surf instructors for our skill level (non-existent), provided us delicious, abundant food and drinks. I think second breakfast, which comes after surfing,... More
