Playa Cocles is located in the Caribbean region of Costa Rica, in the province of Limon, close to Puerto Viejo.
This is a place full of reggae flavor with a laid back atmosphere. You will find hotels for all budgets here. And there are numerous restaurants and places to purchase typical souvenirs in this small town.
The Villagers make great efforts to protect their beach and local businesses pay life guards to patrol it.
Playa Cocles is well known among surfers. The waves break to the left and right over a sandy bottom.
But even here the waves can get too big for beginners on some days. Ask a lifeguard about the beach and surf conditions before swimming or surfing.
The main road passes very close to the beach, you can't miss it.
Hotels and surfboard rentals are available directly next to the beach.
