Cabinas Coloso Del Mar

| 100 meters North of Soda Tranquilo, Playa Zancudo 8201, Costa Rica
Home of the wanted and the unwanted! Or so goes a popular saying in these parts. Zancudo sometimes has the feeling of being at the end of the earth, Central Americas version of the South Seas. Hot, sultry and resplendent. I don't think there are any other colours of green possible. COLOSO DEL MAR sits in the midst of a tropical garden directly on one of the most outstanding black sand beachs in the world. We are located about forty minutes by boat from Golfito and fifty minutes by air from San Jose. We are a little more than one hour north of the border with Panama.

This was my second time at Coloso, and still beautiful as my first time! It's located in one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, Playa Zancudo.

Rooms are clean and have a really nice space. Really good food and drinks. JC the owner is a very good host.

Great location, the staff is very friendly, the beach is mere steps from your cabia. There's a great elevated platform to overlook the ocean and/or take a nice nap in a shaded hammock. Also, they have the best breakfast (crepes) on the playa, and a number of great fish recipes av

My wife and i traveled the southern pacific side of Costa Rica and found a little gem of a spot in Playa Zancudo. Coloso Del Mar was the perfect hide out. Located on a quite stretch of beach, cute comfortable cabins and a little restaurant and bar that will fit into anyone's budg

Hi, I'm booked for tomorrow night for a few nights; flying into Golfito tomorrow afternoon and wondering if you can arrange a boat to pick me up?
Looks wonderful! My wife and I enjoy rustic and are looking to be on the ocean surrounded by accessible nature hikes, bikes, some fishing. we like guided tours as well as lots of time to wander on our own. can you give an idea of guided tours in the area with rough costs? how about sport fishing with rough costs? is it true you have bikes for guests to use and boogie boards? are you located in the part of the beach with the waves or where it is calmer? is it possible to buy fish right from the fisherman and cook in the cabana? how are misquitos in January. we are planning a month stay. Thank you for your help!!!!!!
Are small dogs allowed?

"The beachfront cabinas are the best but the others are close."
"Room 2 had best view and closest to the ocean"
"Ocean side cabins are great if you like the sound of the ocean."
"beach front.."
