My partner and I arrived to Toro Blanco as the last part of our trip. The hotel is quite beautiful in contrast to the rougher aspects of the city of Coco. Each room had a large balcony with a table overlooking the pool. The rooms were dated but clean, with a kitchen in each and air conditioning and warm water. Housekeeping was great, replacing our towels with fresh ones daily and putting away our drying dishes. The hotel staff were friendly but most did not know much English, which made it difficult to originally check in. However, the main owner was friendly and we were able to get some information about the area, such as getting to playa ocotal and arranging transportation to the airport for a very reasonable rate of 35$. We found toro blanco through rich coast diving, a great resource for those looking for some adventure in coco. We enjoyed snorkelling and diving to see puffer fish, star fish, rays, and even sharks. Toro blanco is close to town and a 2 min walk to the beach, very convenient location but you can hear the base from the music late in to the night. This minor inconvenience was worth it to us for the location. Would recommend toro blanco for anyone looking to spend some time in coco, with a reasonable rate, clean hotel, and friendly staff. Would not recommend if you are hoping for somewhere more quiet, luxurious, and helpful in terms of planning excursions/activities if you are English speaking. Thanks for the stay!
