Fodor's Expert Review Cabinas Los Cocos

Beach road, north of Cabinas Sol y Mar, Zancudo, Puntarenas, 60704, Costa Rica

This secluded cluster of self-catering cabins right on the beach, under palm trees swaying in the breeze, is designed for people who want to kick back and enjoy the beach. Artist Susan England is a Zancudo fixture, and she can organize any activity, including river safaris, kayaking tours, and visits to nature preserves. Two idyllic, castaway-island cabins have thatch roofs and hammocks and lots of clever decorating details. The other two are renovated, 40-year-old banana-company wood houses moved here from Palmar Norte and painted pastel pink and blue. It's a rare chance to experience a little bit of Costa Rican history. Book early, because many guests return the same time every year.
