We stayed at Unit 17 in Townhomes El Coco. The house is located right in front of the beach with a nice garden in between. The house has a lot of space. There are 4 rooms, 3 with one king sized bed and one with two single beds. There are however a couple of things that could be improved. -...

We took walks on the beach every evening and enjoyed the most beautiful sunsets. Beach is very private but theres a restaurant and surf shop within walking distance on the...

Management response:

We are 17 kms south of San Juan Del Sur. The last 10 kms are unpaved but the unpaved road is usually in very good condition and Playa el Coco is definitely worth the drive. It was unfortunate you received 2 flat tires, but this was probably the result of bad tires - not the road. We hope you come...
