Myself and my boyfriend visited Costeño in July for 4 nights staying in a beach hut. I made the reservation via email a few days before and they answered very promptly and were expecting us when we arrived. You have to walk about 15-20 mins from where the bus drops you off but you can organise a transfer if you don't like the sound of this. But it's totally worth it! The setting is gorgeous, with lovely gardens, gorgeous, empty beach, and loads of palm trees. You walk through the palm plantation to get to the best break for surfing, near the river mouth. My boyfriend surfs but I don't, but I never was short of things to do there. I read a lot, played volleyball, went swimming and body surfing. Swimming at the river mouth is the best because its refreshing fresh water that's just a little bit cooler than the ocean. The food was fantastic, we were worried it wouldn't be enough for my very hungry boyfriend so we bought chips, biscuits, noodles in case. We bearly needed them, but it's a good idea if you have a big appetite. They have a camp kitchen which consists of a few pots etc and a stove, so noodles are perfect, and an option if you need to save money. But the food and booze is cheap enough anyway, 5,000 breaky 11,000 lunch and dinner, beers 3,000. The beach hut was perfect for two people enough space for your stuff, but very private, dry and mozzie free with the nets. We highly recommend anyone around this area to drop by for a few days. My boyfriend says the surf was not big but really fun waves. Only thing is they may need a few more newer board rentals, especially short boards so its a good idea to bring your own board if you have it. And wax! That was in short supply.
