Visited La Veranera for three nights in early July with my two nephews, ages 18 and 22, at the end of our two week trip to Nicaragua. This was my second visit here, as my wife and I visited last August. As last year, Playa El Coco and La Veranera were absolutely wonderful! We departed San Simian around 11AM, and... More

During our four weeks stay in Nicaragua and Costa Rica our stay at this fantastic beach villa was definitly the best part of the trip. Coco del Playa is a beautiful and super clean beach with almost no tourist (only one or two further tiny hotels) but turtels (the rescue station is at the same beach). We saw a turtle... More

I've been visiting Nicaragua over the past 8 years and have managed to live in the country for just over a year now. After staying at La Veranera last weekend for the third time, I have to say it is absolutely my favorite place in Nicaragua! The location is perfect... just close enough to San Juan del Sur that you... More

We spent our first week in Nicaragua at Playa El Coco and it was a perfect introduction to the country. The beach is beautiful and most of the time we were the only people enjoying it. During our stay we saw a mamma turtle lay eggs in the sand and also watched 35 baby turtles be released into the water.... More

We had couple of wonderful and relaxing days at the end of our Nicaragua trip at La Veranera, a perfect chill out location. The B&B has only 4 rooms, which makes the whole experience very personal and boutique. Louise and Gonzalo have taken very good care of us and the other quests and it felt more like visiting friends than... More

I spent 24 hours with my girlfriends at this magical place a couple weeks ago. From when we walked in, the beauty was jaw dropping. My eyes were glittering with the reflections of the pool - the beauty of which was magnified by the pristine white beach and ocean in the background. Louisa was an amazing host as she catered...

This place truly is heaven on earth. After 9 months of travelling we were looking for somewhere quiet near the water to relax and recharge our batteries. We got all this and much more. Firstly Playa El Coco feels relatively undiscovered. There were never more than a handful of people on the beach at one time. We enjoyed many sunrises... More

If you're looking for a holiday from your holiday La Veranera is for you. Playa El Coco is a beautiful beach with white sands and teeming with fish. The surf is great for beginners (like us) although you do have to keep an eye on the current pulling you out to sea the water is teaming with fish. While there... More
