taxi service and water quality

Will be staying at the Hilton Papagayo and was wondering about the water quality. Is it safe to drink the tap water? Also how much if cab fare to Coco Beach? Is there any kind of nightlife? or any other towns nearby?

Thanks for any info I can get!.......Diane

The water is fine to drink. The Hilton is a bit out of the way, and there is no nightlife apart from what they organize in the hotel. The nearest town is Playa Hermosa, which is 5 km from the Hilton; it is 19 km from Playas del Coco. Taxi fare to Coco is about $20 each way. Ginger Restaurant in Playa Hermosa offers a free shuttle service to guests of the Hilton.

If you get the chance.. go to Gingers... it was so worth it!! (We stayed in Coco).. especially if you get the free shuttle but before you do dinner go to La Finisterra tripadvisor.ca/Hotel_Review-g309246-d301260-… for the sunset views
