The quaint village of Playa Ocotal is located a few minutes south of the popular beach town of Playas del Coco, where visitors can find numerous restaurants and nightlife options
"Father Roosters on the beach was great. There is an Italian restaurant in Playas Del Coco that is great. La Caveja."
"This is the perfect place to unplug--there is nothing here but the beach and it's quiet and not developed. "
"More populated than the rain-forest so not as clean. Ocotal was quiet & not a lot happening there - Coco is about 3 km away & that is where you find the restaurants, stores, bars etc. Do the Sunset Catamaran Tour!!! Husband went scuba diving & gave it great reviews!! "
"Looks safe. People are friendly. Great for country exploration."
"Lovely, in terms of nature, and the locals too (but not that many in Ocotal). Too many North Americans...but Playa Coco was interesting (tho too touristy). Felt a bit 'out of my element' in terms of exclusive clubs, etc. but the beach and views and people were nice. LOVED staying at the Villa Casa Blanca! Wonderful staff, location, architecture - and so cool to be able to cook and relax there!"
