I loved the food. I really liked the idea of having tables right on the beach where you can actually feel the sand on your feet, feel the breeze and listen to the waves splash. Very nice. The food was excellent, specially seafood plates. The churros and the coconut ice-cream were wonderful. A place to go!

What better way to watch the sunset then sit at a table with your wife and or friends on the beach, literally. Coco Loco is perfect. Their menue has a good variety of choices at reasonable prices. And the BEST sunset view on the beach.

We finished up a perfect day of playing volleyball on the beach and cooling down in the surf with a leisurely lunch at Coco Loco. It was busy and the waitstaff was slow but no big deal-we were in no rush and were embracing the pura vida lifestyle. The food was delicious and it all seemed fantastic until several hours... More

First of all, I can't believe how quite this gorgeous and clean beach is in comparison to Playa del Coco or Tsmerindo. Great body surfing and swimming. It's so quite that we had no issues parking our cars. This restaurant is located at the south end of the beach and offers great quality bar good and fun drinks. You can't... More

This little gem is awesome, the owner & staff are very friendly. They even took us in back to see the howler monkeys in the trees. Cervasas are nice & cold here. Short walk from Flamingo Resort.
