I was at El Coco Loco in November 2015 for the Eat, Play, Love Retreat and I absolutely loved it. EVERYONE involved with this place plays a part in it's magic. The food was absolutely to die for, the yoga was amaze-balls and the beach and accommodations were truly one of a kind. I only wish I had made El... More

El Coco Loco is an immaculately kept eco-lodge next to virgin Pacific beach. It's off the beaten path and a true retreat away from hordes of tourists and the stresses of city life. I hosted our Elevate Retreat here and our entire group of 21 people were thrilled. Waking up with the rooster crowing, listening to the waves crash on... More

I stayed at El Coco Loco for a surf and yoga retreat and the facilities, cabanas, owners, staff and food were all amazing. There's a very family/community vibe, so you can hang out in the common area and chat or find a hammock and chill. It's rustic chic (compost toilets!), so if you're okay with that, this is a little... More

El Coco Loco is special because it's relaxing, charming and comfortable while also being located off the beaten path in such an un-touristy location. It really feels authentic and real, not a place where you're herded-in to do a retreat and then leave. The owners are incredibly cool and you feel right at home. They go the extra mile to... More

Only left El Coco Loco yesterday and we already wish we were back. We miss the serenity, the amazing healthy diet, the warm ocean and the friendly people. This will not be our only visit, we will be back! Can't wait! So impressed with what you have created in such a remote area. May it always remain as is, part... More

Just returned from a great trip at Coco Loco. Beautiful, remote, and completely buttoned up operation. To get that kind of service in Nicaragua is very rare. They were awesome. I was there for a quick 2 night stay with my girlfriend looking to surf the warm waters of Nica. The morning breakfast spread was unreal - I'm not a... More

I can't say enough good things about El Coco Loco Resort. I was there for a month for a 200hr yoga certification program and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The accommodations were perfect - from my cabana with its purple mosquito nets and lofty ceiling to the outdoor shower surrounded by flowers and papaya trees. The location... More

Peaceful, beautiful and heart warming are just a few of the words to describe El Coco Loco resort. I cannot say enough about the wonderful owners and staff at the resort; they were always friendly, helpful and treated me like family! While there I spent time visiting a couple of the schools built by Waves of Hope and their volunteers,... More

I attended a yoga retreat hosted at El Coco Loco. The Eco-Friendly resort is rustic with the outdoor showers, composting toilets and no wifi available but it is PERFECT for someone looking to disconnect from society and reconnect with one's self. I was a little nervous when I read that the shower only had cold water and I must say...this... More

I agree with OneGiantStep (who I met at Coco Loco!) that this place has something special going on. I happy helped my friend organize a yoga trip for 16 of us and were were not disappointed. From the great food served at every meal, to the friendly owners and staff, to the gorgeous elevated yoga deck, and...the beaches...wow. You can... More
