Realistic beach day trips from Playa Hermosa

My group and I are travelling in early April for 2 weeks and will be staying in a Villa in P. Hermosa. We are renting a vehicle, 4x4. We wanted to explore some other beaches on the coast, but I'm not sure which ones are possible to see in a day considering the driving distances. Specifically , we would like to go to the Southern Nicoya coast - Is it possible to drive there and back in a day with a reasonable time to enjoy the sun and beach?

Also I've been told driving through the night is not recommended, but since we are staying in Hermosa, we were planning to spend a few nights in Coco. Will it be difficult to drive back to our villa in the dark from Coco or should we cab it?

From Coco's to Playa Hermosa or the other way around maybe about 30 minutes even less...just common sense...and everything is going to be OK!

Just got back...

Stayed in a Villa in Hermosa Heights...less than 20 minutes drive to Coco. Road is narrow, lots of bikes and walkers on the edge of the road in the early evenings--mostly people commuting from work, just drive slowly and keep alert.

Weather is warm, sunny (a little windy on some days).

Only rain we experienced was first part of the month in Monteverde.
