Playa Ocotal, Guanacaste Costa Rica. Oceav Views to die for

Located three kilometers south of Playas del Coco and only 35 minutes from the Daniel Oduber International Airport, is the small quiet bedroom community of Playa Ocotal. This quaint coastal town has a residential feel to it as much of the land has already been developed with private home lots, and condos within a couple hundred meters from the beach starting as low as $115,000 to beautiful ocean view homes nestled in the hills valued into the millions. Ocotal is not over built and has impressive development projects such as Azul Paraiso, Vista Ocotal, Pez Vela Resort, Coco Bay Estates private Beach Club and the Ocotal Beach Resort, as well as an array of smaller bed and breakfast hotels with a low-key, rustic vibe. Playa Ocotal has some of the best ocean views in the area!   


The beach at Playa Ocotal is a calm, black sand beach about a third of a mile long situated in a tiny cove protected by high bluffs.  It is ideal for swimming and snorkeling, or just to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility in a lush tropical setting.  Scuba diving is also available, and the nearby Catalina Island is a recommended diving spot. Many local sport fishing operators work out of the bay for some of the best fishing in the area.


Father Rooster is the premier beachfront bar and grill in the town and is situated along the north end of the beach. This is the place if you want the best fish tacos in the area.   Enjoy the wonderfully bright red and purple colors of the sunset while sipping a frozen tropical drink, munching on their famous nachos or other great menu items. Other great restaurants include the Ocotal Beach Resort, set above the ocean in the surrounding bluffs offering incredible ocean views, A great location to watch the whales when they come to this part of Costa Rica in December to February with their calf’s. Another good restaurant is Picante, located on the beach in the Pez Vela Resort offering delicious international cuisine at affordable prices. 


Playa Ocotal is only a five to seven minute drive to Playas del Coco, the commercial hub of the surrounding bedroom communities, offering all the necessary services and featuring an abundant night life with many lively bars, restaurants, shops, and two casinos. After living it up in Playas del Coco, return to the quiet and tranquil peacefulness of Ocotal and realize that you are so close to everything, yet a world apart.
