Laundry is on site , we are located walking distance to pristine beaches, with world class surf (experts and beginners) and we have bicycles and surfboards that the guess can use
Interaction with Guests
We can help the guests telling them were is the best place to go surfing, we live on a house next to the place and we are ready to help and advice in everything
We are directly next door to "Cafe La Ventana" an organic cafe that serves smoothies, espresso, and amazing food using fresh made breads and local produce. Next door to them is "Johnny Manana surf art gallery"
Located 30 minutes from Tamarindo, and 10 minutes to Avellanas. There are buses to Santa Cruz and other towns, but as far as in town most people just walk or take bikes because everything is so close. There is a place for parking on the property so if you have a rental car it will be safe in the gated yard. A neighbor of mine have a car service and can pick you up in most places if you arrange with us ahead of time.
Coco and his cabina are absolute gems! Playa Negra is the friendliest town I have ever been to. His friend Ben picked us up at the airport and took us grocery shopping where food was cheap. The cabina had everything to cook our meals (pots, stove top, fridge, freezer, etc). The cabina is very clean, spacious, and unique with all the woodwork and furniture Coco built himself. Coco is an amazing host and always helped us out. He invited us to yoga class plus he hooked us up with good deals for surf lessons and hikes! It's also a beautiful 15 minute walk to the beach through the small surf town and fields of horses. There is a bar/restaurant on the beach if we ever needed food or a drink. Overall, staying at Coco's with his dogs Nacho and Pisco made our adventures in Costa Rica extremely memorable and we would definitely stay again! Thanks Coco again for one of the best vacations we’ve ever had! Pura Vida!! :)
Coco, Pisco Sour and Nacho Libre (his dogs) were excellent hosts! This was the perfect place to kick back in a hammock and look for iguanas, monkeys and birds. Not to mention surf and practice amazing Yoga! Coco knows all the best places in town and has great recommendations. I loved my time in Playa Negra and will definitely be aiming to get back soon! My best stop so far on my month long excursion. Thanks again Coco!
After we got a ride from the airport by Coco's friend and neighbour Ben (who is awesome by the way), we arrived in a very welcome manor with Coco and his dogs at his house.
Coco one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, very hospitable. The cabin was clean, was in a great location, and could be kept cool on those HOT days.
If you are looking for something off the beaten path, away from the hussle and bussle of a big city - this is where you need to go -- the time goes slow and there is no rush about this little surfer town.
This trip by far was the best we've taken and cant wait to go back.
I stayed at Coco's with my wife and two daughters. Coco's place was a great cabina for us. We enjoyed the quiet town of Playa Negra. The howler monkeys also showed up the day we did which was fun. He is neighbors with an excellent organic café. There are many beaches worth exploring within a short drive. It has quality restaurants. Interactions with good people like Coco are what made the vacation special. Coco is very helpful and it was obvious he was well regarded by the other residents of the town. It was an exceptional value. We were all happy we chose to stay at Coco's.
Coco was very welcoming especially cause we arrived later than expected. His place is simple and clean. It was great to have use of a fridge. There is no stove but a stove top on the counter. The walk to the beach is about 10 mins. We had a rental & preferred to drive. Coco has 2 hammocks in the front which we used in the evening & there is air conditioning to cool the place down. The area is nice & quiet, a break from the more hectic areas in Costa Rica. Thanks Coco!
Staying at Coco's was the best experience! Playa Negra is a great little town, not at all touristy, with gorgeous beaches and amazing surfing! The cabina was cute and clean, an easy 15 walk to the beach and 5 minutes to the restaurants and shops, and 10 minutes to an amazing yoga retreat! Everyday in Costa Rica was paradise, and we would definitely come back to stay at Coco's!
Après un séjour d'une semaine chez Coco, nous sommes descendu sur la côte pacifique, vers le sud, en s'arrêtant successivement à Samara puis Montezuma avec un crochet à Miami avant de rentrer. Malgré toutes les bonnes adresses que nous avons découvertes, nous sommes tombés d'accord: on était bien chez Coco. Pourquoi? Pour la simplicité du lieu, parce qu'on se sentait bien avec quatre murs, un toit, de quoi se laver, dormir, un frigo et tout de même, une bonne connexion internet :-).
Merci Coco pour nous avoir fait ressentir ce qu'est la pura vida.
