The Coco beach is beautiful and there just few people, so you can really enjoy it. You can get there by your car or bus. The road from Juan is unpaved, but possible even with small car. The accommodation is possible just in one resort (or I didn't find more) and is very expensive. You can rent one bungalow for... More

We were looking for a relaxing, peaceful place to say around San Juan del Sur, and we certainly found it at Parque Maritimo el Coco. We stayed in Cangreo #3, one of three connected bungalows situated right on the beautiful beach. Our 4 year old loved being able to go out the door and find sand dollars, hermit crabs, and... More

Favorite location in southern Nicaragua, nice bungalow park, apt. los volcanes is very nice for couples or small family. Staff is friendly and correct, some personal touch could help to make the experience even more enjoyable. Some stuff in the appts need maintenance. Overall fine, and in july and august there are often discounts.

This place was great! Great beach nice rooms, good service. The good and rooms were a bit expensive but it is at the end of a long dirt road so I'm guessing its expensive to get stuff there. My only complaint is that the pool was pretty dirty!

It's a nice quiet hotel out of town (about 30-45 drive south of San Juan Del Sur). Secluded beach. Decent surf. There is a restaurant down the beach about a hundred and fifty yards or so. Cool place to just kick back and relax.

While the room i stayed in was very basic, you could spend more for lovely bungalows. The beach is amazing and great if you are looking for a hideaway. While I was a solo traveller, this beach would be great for a romantic trip or with the family!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just 18 kilometers south of San Juan del Sur is situated Parque Maritimo el Coco, a resort specially conceived to allow our visitors to relax in a peaceful environment, in direct contact with nature. The resort - of category III - offers lodging in houses of different design). A characteristic of this resort consists in its location in plain nature, where since 1994 have ben constructed houses under the roof oft trees. The resort's administration wants to conserve these natural surroundings, which offer the suited hiding places for many wild animals like squirrels, skunks, iguanas, garrobos, etc. During October and November herds of hauler monkeys visit the resort, attracted by the fruits of jobos. You can watch birds like urracas, colibris, woodpeckers, small parrots and many others because we respect nature's biological rhythmus. The growing of the trees during the rainy season is part of this rhythmus, the falling of there dry leafs and branches is part of the rhythmus, too. These branches y leafs are not garbage, but important natural dung. Furthermore they help to keep humid the soil retaining the water, the main source of life, in the ground. We invite our guests to immerse into nature witch surrounds the hotel, to enjoy healthy vacations in harmony with the environment. The extended grounds, that surround each house, are another characteristic of this resort. They guarantee privacy y extensive playground so that parents can supervise children easily. It is the perfect spot for couples or whole families, because our beach allows a safe and enjoying swim. We offer different lodging options, from small bungalows to large houses: - Apartments located directly on the coast, which invite you to take an early morning swim or to jog on the 1 km long, sandy beach - Bungalows on a gently hill at about 200 m from the seashore with a terrace in the middle of treetops, a place perfectly suited to watch birds - Houses on top of hills with outstanding sea view, about 100 to 200 m from the shore. All lodgings are equipped with fully furnished kitchens. In the Mini Super, at the entrance of the resort, you will find all you need to prepare a good meal. To allow the kook to enjoy vacations too, you can visit the nearby restaurant "Puesta del Sol", right on the shore. While parents savor a sundowner looking in astonishment at the spectacular sunset, less contemplative youngsters might enjoy plying beach ball, frisbee, volleyball, table soccer, billiard or dive into the pool. Excursions: We recommend visiting by horse or bicycle the nearby villages. On the way you might encounter hordes of howler monkeys, and other sylvatic animals. Very friendly and poor agricultural workers will be happy to invite you to participate on their cultural activities like worships. At night you can visit "Playa la Flor", a sanctuary for endangered marine turtles. On nesting periods of the marine turtle "Paslama" (Lepidochelys oliveacea) you can observe up to 20,000 turtles on a period of four days. During the day you can take a boat tour nearby, where marine turtles can be seen mating. With a bit of luck you can see dolphins or even whales on some periods of the year. Another tour you can take is to "Bolanos" island on the boundaries of Costa Rica and Nicaragua, a sanctuary for frigate birds (Fregata magnificens) and other marine birds like pelicans. You can climb to the nesting sites and observe the brooding of different kinds of birds. ... more   less
