Travel Blogs from Playas del Coco

As I was visiting some friends for a long period of time in the US, we decided to take a week to indulge ourselves with some chilling out in Costa Rica.

So for now, I say adios and more to come soon!

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Puerta del Sol Playas del Coco
We stayed here as a result of a diving package through deep blue diving. It is a great hotel, nice rooms, nice pool and grounds. It is a five minute walk from the beach which is all sand and huge. Definitely reccomend.
