There's a lot to do around, but I recommend don't miss the diving here.
Other activities includes surfing, sport fishing, canopy, sailing, visits to several National Parks ( close to Coco), ATV jungle tours, snorkelng. There are good bars, restaurants and hotels for every budget, from a Four Seasons Resort to simple "cabinas".
I found out a lot of good and updated information on this local website: www.revistautopia.com
Hired Captain Ned for fishing through Eric the air canada tours. Six hours ,caught 1 blue marlin about 250 lbs, 1 roosterfish 40 lbs, 8 tuna from 7 to 25 lbs. He was absolutly amazing in his knowledge of the waters off Bat Island. Saw many sailfish, dolphins, huge sae turtles. lots of bottled water and beer. A fresh pinapple for lunch. One of our best days. Eric is based out of the Grand Papagayo resort. I'm sure you can hire Ned from one of the charter operations on the main street.

4 KM west of Playas del Coco, Costa Rica
Satisfaction: Very Good
Good for: Families
Fresh fish well spiced and well cooked. Also Ginger a nice location on the way from Coco to playa Blanco, wide variety of tastes made to share, they recomend 3 dishes per person and we were very satisfied with taste and volume. The view at sunset although not on the beach is breath taking. will post pics when I get them scanned.
