Green Mystery (El Verde Misterioso)
Reviewed 19 June 2009

We stayed here with friends in January, 2009. The resort is a simple grouping of condo style bungalows with air conditioning, 2 bedrooms, living area, dining area and a kitchen. They had wireless internet available and a great pool and bar area. Cooking some of our own meals was a small luxury which is often overlooked, but can really make or break a vacation. The staff could not have been more helpful when our car had a flat tire, the proprietor filled our tire on site and gave us good directions to a nearby repair shop. Sounds like a small favor, but it was a life saver and enabled us to complete the activities we had planned for the day.
We were able to enjoy a nearby zip line park and drove to several beaches in the area. There are good restaurants nearby (everyone must try the Arroz con Pollo). We enjoyed hiking in the mornings on the resort property and the feel of the place is more like a small community rather than a hotel. Overall had a wonderful time and would recommend it to others!

My husband and I had a great time playing cards on the porch and watching the sunset from the nearby beaches. We spent 5 days at El Verde Misterioso (The Green Mystery) with another couple, and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. El Verde Misterioso is a beautiful getaway in Playa del Coco. It features two bedroom villas with a bathroom, living area and a small kitchen. The villas are air conditioned and have several windows that can be opened if you want to enjoy the cool morning breeze and listen for the howler monkeys. The grounds are beautifully kept, and the pool is a great place to meet fellow vacationers. This is a great little spot for a couple (or two) to stay while visiting the beaches.

This was the nicest place we could find in Playas del Coco (Coco Beach) that was in our price range. The villas are cute and bright with almost floor to ceiling windows. There is hot water, air conditioning, and a fully functioning kitchen, which we really appreciated.

Grocery shopping in the area is just like it is back home, but there are also a variety of restaurants (both sodas and higher-priced dining) too. The only downside to staying here is that our favorite beach was a good 20 minutes away. But the jungle and the seclusion of the resort made it worth it.

The two best parts of staying at El Verde Misterioso are the people and the wildlife. The property managers are incredibly kind and accommodating. They bent over backwards for us. We were also fortunate enough to see lizards, beautiful birds, and monkeys right on property.

We decided to extend our trip through the rainy season, despite what our guide books told us. We are so glad we did because it turns out to be a nice time to visit too.
