“Paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Best place to stay in Playa de Zancudo. Naranja cabina set in the middle of a tropical oasis has everthing you need. Waking up to the sounds of the ocean and the birds is heaven. Susan and Andrew make you feel like friends. Deserted black sand beach is the most beautiful I've ever seen. I think about this place everyday and can't wait to return.

My wife, my 12-year-old son, and I spent our Christmas holiday reading in the hammock, playing in the waves, eating fresh Mahi every day, and exploring a less developed Costa Rica. Susan and Andrew helped us with everything, and we felt like family. We zip-lined, fished, and toured botanical gardens and the wildlife refuge. They all were great experiences. The beach is vast and virtually untouched. We hope to return soon.

We( my husband and I) have been visiting Costa Rica since the early 90's, and have more or less been in all parts of this beautiful country. Zancudo and Los Cocos had always been on my radar, so finally we decided to give it a try last February.
When we arrived, we couldn't believe we had waited that long!!
We stayed in one of the Banana cabins a stone's throw from one if the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. What makes the beach in front of Los Cocos so special is it's "swimability". Riptides are quite common at most beaches in the country, but I felt quite safe here. You can walk for miles up the beach and almost have it to yourself, then come back to your cabin and chill out with a book on the front porch overlooking the beautiful gardens and ocean. Susan is a fabulous artist and her artwork adorns the walls, giving an overall whimsical feeling to the cabins. At night, we'd walk along the beach a few hundred yards and dine at Sol Y Mar-incredible value- fresh seafood for $10! And a really great, "end of the road" kind of vibe, rife with interesting characters.

Hands down, Los Cocos probably offers one of the best values for your dollar in all of Costa Rica, if you are looking for that "Robinson Crusoe" experience. I swore I wouldn't write this review(don't want Los Cocos to get TOO discovered) but Susan and Andrew truly deserve accolades for their efforts to create this artistic piece of paradise. We wi be back this February.

My wife, friends and I have been visiting Los Cocos for over 12 years. Beautiful beach surrounded by nature. Relaxation or adventure - floating in the ocean, amazing sunsets, exploring nature, jungle and ocean tours, great fishing, or enjoying the food and atmosphere at the local restaurants. This getaway from it all is always a wonderful experience made extra special by the hosts.

My husband and I have been visiting Los Cocos for over 10 years now. One week turned into two, turned into three--and now we try to stay for at least a month. We've tried going to other places in Costa Rica, just to make sure we were'nt missing anything. We were'nt. Beauty: gardens full of flowers, birds, butterflies and lizards; tranquility: only 4 privately situated cabins each with its own porch facing the Golfo Dulce beyond the gardens. We usually make our own breakfasts and go out for dinner at one of the restaurants nearby. Fresh fruits and veggies can be bought off the back of Emilio's truck on Thurdays and Sundays. The water is gentle and warm.
And we are usually invited to share yoga with Susan, Andrew and friends. For me this retreat carries me thru the rest of the year. And it's affordable... What more could I ask for?

We have been returning guests for seven years. Zancudo is a place hard to come by in today's ripe for development world. It is a paradise literally at the end of the dirt road. Six miles of beach, great restaurants, good fishing, and Los Cocos added as a bonus for a great place to stay. Susan and Andrew are great hosts and provide a quiet, safe, and clean resort. The cabinas are good for a short or long stay with sufficient amenities to be as self sufficient as you care to be. Offshore breeze keeps the temperature very pleasant during the day, and great sunsets every night from your porch.

Los Cocos has been the highlight of many Costa Rican vacations for us, the peace and beauty of this place have always restored our souls. Can't emphasize enough how great it feels to be able to relax at Los Cocos and feel so far away from the typical Central American vacation hell (party crowds, screaming children, drunken teens, noisy traffic and thumpy music emanating from fake beach bars - you won't have to suffer these here). Staying at Los Cocos has been a wonderful escape every time we visited. Susan and Andrew are the perfect hosts, there to help and offer suggestion; staff & cleanliness are impeccable. The cabinas and grounds are all nicely shown on the Los Cocos website.
