Surf spot here on the Caribbean side
Aug 2021
This is the spot if you like to surf or wish to learn. There are a number of surf teachers here almost every day. Near the south end there is a complete surf shop. You can purchase anything related to surfing you need.

If you are a surfer, this is a beach for you
Jul 2021
We visited the beach for half an hour just to see the surfers (we are no surfers, just the audience). So I think if you want to surf this is a beach for you. We enjoyed watching the surfers and audience alike. The surf club with all the difference coloured surf-boards, added to to image as well.

Dangerous beauty
Mar 2021
The place is dangerous. Of it is not the pollution that directly is dumped into the sea from nearby businesses, it is the danger of currents that is to be looked out for.

Beautiful beach for surfers. No swimming!
Mar 2021 • Couples
Beautiful surfing beach with a fun surfer atmosphere. Please note: This beach is NOT safe for swimming due to strong rip current, please only go in ankle deep. We witnessed a person who was pulled out of the water after drowning. We were told that he was only standing waist deep in the water before he was sucked into a rip current.

Amazing, beautiful beach but be very careful of the strong rip tides here and in Costa Rica.
Dec 2020
It's not discussed enough in my opinion the dangers of rip tides and strong successive waves at this beach in particular and others in Costa Rica. I had a close call and I now of 2 other people that had close calls and then someone died at this beach a couple days ago. Be VERY careful swimming/surfing in Costa Rica. Review rip tide protocol and watch for the red flags.

The Jungle Is Amazing!
Mar 2020
We enjoyed our 3week stay in Cocles. The Caribbean side of the country is culturally diverse, offers many culinary delights and we met incredibly friendly people. Cannot wait to go back!
