Coco Loco Eco Resort
Reviewed December 13, 2010

This place is incredible. For all those that want to try surfing, and feel like your on a real surf trip/adventure... this is the place. Holly Beck is there sometimes for lesson, the breaks are gentle and forgiving (not to mention EMPTY) for beginners. The resort is extremely rustic and eco-friendly but has a nice touch of class and charm. The food is fresh and amazing every day. The people and staff are friendly and laid back. Sunsets are among the best in the world. Day trips are available for more adventure or just lay on the beach. This place ROCKS!

As our first stop along the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua, I can't think of a more perfect and beautiful place to stay and unwind. The beauty and simplicity of this place is perfect to help you unwind and just chill out whether at the beginning or end of your trip. And depending on what you’re looking for could easily be your whole trip. The facilities are perfect in everyway, environmentally conscious and comfortable. The staff at this location are happy and always smiling, making it so incredibly easy to let go and feel as though you are at home. Our host at the time (Ben) was absolutely amazing, taking care of us and ensuring our stay was excellent. From taking care of retrieving our lost luggage to introducing us to other opportunities in the area. The beach is breath taking, surrounded by a small local farm that somehow makes it feel like such local experience. Surfing, boogie boarding or chillin in a hammock, eating delicious food and knowing that part of the money you spend goes to an incredible charity "Waves of Hope" makes this an excellent choice. I would recommend this to everyone going to Nicaragua, as it is remembered as the highlight of my trip. Will return with friends!!

This place is amazing! Opened only a few weeks ago, these boys from the US and Canada are spot on! Great location, 2 minutes from the beach, surrounded by world class surfspots in the peace and quiet of Nicaragua's pacific coast ( we even spotted super sexy surf champion Holly Beck down there!).

Cute private cabanas and dorms on a large property with its own restaurant and bar, volleyball field, and a soccer field, pool and community vegetable garden in the making.

The most impressive thing about this place is the environmental and social work the owners are doing through their community development program called "Waves Of Hope". All proceeds from surfboard rentals and lessons go to this program, which is heavily involved with the local school, providing schooling materials, English classes and environmental education for the local kids and young adults.

The hostal itself also walks the talk, being solar powered, using composting toilets especially imported from Canada, re-use of greywater and much much more.
Have a look at their website!
