If you are looking for a perfect setting to dig your feet in the sand and watch the sunset while enjoying great cocktails and fresh, authentic Costa Rican food then Coco Loco is for you. We loved it so much that we vistited twice. Each time our meal was tasty, the service friendly, and the sunset beautiful. My kids asked why would bother going anywhere else to eat on our vacation. The only one negative was the mosquitos, so bring your bug spray. The torches that the staff lit really helped, but didn't rid of us of being bitten completely. I think I had the best cocktail of our entire eight day trip there. It's called the Coco Loca and served in a coconut. Need I say more? I loved the yellow fin tuna tacos and my son like the pork ribs so much he ordered them twice.

Laid-back, on the beach. Great place to watch the sunset. No bugs. Not really a restaurant - seemed like tables on the beach with a cooking area on the other side of the road. I finally felt like I was in Costa Rica when we ate here. The kids loved it too since they weren't in a stuffy restaurant.

Good food and service, but wear bug spray. The ceviche is outstanding. Good drinks too...
The night we were there there was a bonfire which was particularly cool.
