You have to know where it is but this is a great sunset spot. We had another couple with us and all of our food was very good. Whole rock lobster for $19, steak with a heated lava rock to cook at the table, seafood rice, and ceviche all were excellent.

We stayed at the Flamingo Beach Resort and broke out our flashlight a couple of nights to walk the beach road to Coco Loco. A very nice walk. You have your choice of eating at table set up on the beach (under cover) or in the possibly more comfortable chairs and table inside the restaurant. We chose the beach. Either... More

We heard about this place but didn't try it until our last 2 days. We wish we had tried it sooner! Located right on the beach about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel Flamingo Beach Resort. The food is excellent and fairly priced. We enjoyed the coconut shrimp, pork ribs, and churrasco cooked on a volcanic rock. We only... More

Eat right on the beach and watch the sunset. Have a tall, cool one. Life can't be better than at Coco Loco.

I highly recommend this as a place to sit in the sand and lookout at the sea while in the Playa Flamingo area.

This place by the beach is great for a drink enjoying the views and the sunset. However, the food was disappointing. We ordered the empanadas to share, the chicken and Brie sandwich and the ropa vieja sandwich. The empanadas were small and oily, but there is this kind of fried empanadas thatsy need extra oil to be tasty. Ok, let's... More

Went here for lunch one day on our trip, you can't beat the atmosphere, right on the beach! I had some ahi tuna tacos that were fabulous. They also had some great cocktails to sip while enjoying the beautiful view!
