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.
Coco is the man! He was super friendly and accommodating. He lent my girlfriend and I his bikes, hooked me up with a surfboard and arranged for his Ben to drive us to the airport the night we left. Coco is an incredibly friendly guy and his house is awesome.
Coco was in San Jose when we arrived (renewing his visa or something). Place is awesome looking all handmade wood etc. Unfortunately while he was gone the water broke. Nobody was there to repair it at the time so we left. He quickly refunded us and was extremely kind and apologetic.
Très déçus !
Difficile à trouver, aucune indication.
Plage à 1km, alors que la description laissait à penser qu'elle était très proche; beaucoup de poussière, une cuisine indigente, sans évier (il faut utiliser le lavabo), une table pour enfants tellement elle est basse, rien à l'extérieur pour manger ou se relaxer, et enfin les ampoules de l'appartement tellement peu nombreuses que l'on ne peut pas lire dans la salle de séjour ou dans la chambre; frontales exigées ! Attention aux fils électriques dénudés et aux risques de chute dans la salle de sejour depuis la chambre.
Malgré un bel accueil de la part de coco, le gîte ne tient pas ses promesses. Rapport qualité/prix très mauvais. Avec beaucoup de travail encore il pourrait devenir confortable; il faut noter que la salle de bain est très bien.
We had a fantastic time staying in Coco's place. We initially had some trouble finding it as it is nicely tucked away and private, but Coco sent his brother to retrieve us from a well known landmark. The accommodation itself is beautifully crafted by Coco himself and comfortable and private with big fridge, coffee maker and very fast and reliable internet. Coco gave us good recommendations of where to go for drinks and dinner, and Playa Negra is a beautiful beach with low tourist development. Sadly we only were able to stay one night, as the house was booked for weeks, but we feel lucky to have been able to spend the one night getting to know Coco. Thanks Coco!
