At first glance, Playa del Coco seems less impressive than other Nicoya Peninsula beaches. The dark brown beach is hardly among Costa Rica’s finest, and the town’s main street is cluttered and congested. But the wide, sheltered bay reveals the town’s big draw: boats and boating. If you’re interested in all things nautical—sailing, sportfishing, scuba diving—Playa del Coco is one of Costa Rica’s top destinations.
