Volcanic dark sand beach. Not your typical idea of a “vacation beach “ but you can get in and splash around you just can’t see what’s below. more »
Hermosa playa se disfruta bastante, si estan en la zona solo tengan cuidado de no hospedarse en el hotel Villas Playa Hermosa, ahí te roban todo... more »Beautiful beach is quite enjoyed, if you are in the area just be careful not to stay at the hotel Villas Playa Hermosa, there you are robbed...
Great beach. Guessing about a mile long. Beach is very populated on most days. Good snorkeling on the south end. No waves hardly at all while we've been here. 4-5 restaurants within walking distance that are on the beach. Another few on the main road within 2 blocks. Plenty of activities here. Snorkeling, Scuba, jet skis and kayaks/equipment for rent. Plenty of fishing boats for 1/2 day and day fishing trips. We paid $475 for 2 separate half day fishing excursions ($237.50 for each day - 4 people included in price). 8-10 minutes from the Coco beach area.
Beautiful beach. Quiet and slower paced than Plays Del Cocoa with much less crowds. Good restaurants on the beach as well as anew blocks up the main street leading in. Well worth it.
