Playa Ocotal

Just a few minutes south of Playas del Coco, this beach couldn’t be more different than its rapidly developing neighbor. Quiet and serene, there is little commercial development, aside from a couple of beachfront restaurants. A large resort hotel dominates the beach, and private condominium complexes and luxurious villas pile up on the steep hills overlooking the ocean.
