We visited CR to celebrate our anniversary. What a delightful joy. We stayed in Coco Beach at a beach rental, Cocomarindo, for four days before going to the RIU resort for six days. We wanted to get our touring in while there at Coco Beach. We booked a double tour we were to zip line in the morning and snorkel in the afternoon. Somehow we missed being picked up for the zip line tour. I thought, perfect! I had never zip lined and it looked like this was my way out. Our missing that tour was actually divinely ordained. We were given the opportunity to get involved in missionary work. I won't give the details. However we got to reschedule our trip after talking to Grethel the tour organizer. Because of our inconvenience we were picked up by our own private driver, taken to the zip line, were admitted to a monkey reserve free and given a Guana Card to help save on other tours, activities, dinners etc. It is good for a year. The tour operator did everything possible to make things right. They have some of the best prices and conversation in town!!!!!!! A noteworthy aside, the Costa Rican population is one of the nicest I have ever met!!!…

We booked a half day inshore fishing trip with El Coco Beach Tours on 4/6/15. In my emails prior to the trip, I asked if we could target bottom fish (grouper, snapper, etc).... specifically we did not want to go trolling for larger pelagic fish. We were picked up and as soon as we got going the captain started talking about trolling.... I asked if we could mooch the bottom instead and he told me he did not have the gear and he was not told what we wanted to fish for. All in all it was a half a day boat ride. Very disappointing.…

Defiantly go there to do all your shopping for souvenirs. If your worried about being mugged or in danger....DONT. You will be fine, the locals are very welcoming.
