Coco Loco is located on the beach at Playa Flamingo. It is a 30 minute drive north from Tamarindo. If you have a car, this restaurant is highly recommended. Get a table on the beach and watch the waves. Playa Flamingo is a beautiful beach and hardly ever crowded. If you like seared tuna, the seared tuna tacos are a must. I also like the plantain appetizer. A new take on "chips and salsa" that I think you'll enjoy. And if the day is hot, make sure you order coconut water in the coconut! So cold and so refreshing. I had to order 2 the last time I was there.

Great location to watch the sunset. They don't take reservations, so go early and grab a table on the beach. Apply your insect repellent as the tables are on the sand and the biting insects also like to come out to watch the sunset. But the view and the food are worth it! This restaurant buys their fish daily from local fishermen and it. is. AMAZING! Best mahi mahi I've ever eaten. About a 10 minute walk from the condo.

If you're celebrating a special occasion and you have a car, you HAVE to make a reservation for sunset and dinner at Sentido Norte. It is a very special experience. Patrons are seated in "stadium" beach-style couches to watch views of the sunset on the water. Stunning. You can order appetizers (potstickers were delicious!) and enjoy a beverage (great craft beers and the smoothest saki I've ever had) while you enjoy the view. After the sun sets, you are escorted to your table in the dining room for a special treat. I recommend the BBQ Chicken. I know it sounds basic, but believe me, it was absolutely delicious. The hibiscus spritz is a nice fruity drink that I highly recommend. Please note: Sentido Norte is an adults only restaurant. Children under 12 years of age are not permitted at the restaurant. About an hour drive, but allow plenty of time (1.5 hours) to ensure you get there early for the sunset. Sometimes the traffic can get pretty busy mid to late afternoon leaving Tamarindo. Make your reservations with the restaurant https://www.sentidonorterestaurant.com/

Sightseeing
If you have a car and would like to snorkel, we recommend this sail boat adventure. It's 1-1.5 hour drive to Playas Del Coco. They offer two tours: 1) Morning Sailing & Snorkeling Tour: 9:00 AM TO 1:00 PM, Meeting to board is 8:30 AM. You'll see Monkey Head rock, Islas las Pelonas, and Witch's Rock (a popular spot amongst local surfers and thrill seekers). You may even see dolphins, whales, sea turtles, rays, and any number of fascinating fish. At anchor, their skilled crew will take you on an exciting guided snorkel tour in a secluded bay! 2) Sailing At Sunset, 3 PM - 6 PM, Meeting to board is 2:30 PM. Is there anything more romantic than sailing on the ocean into the sunset? We certainly don't think so. You can create your own memories for a special occasion by sailing The Sea Bird out at any time for a Private Charter... including Engagements, Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Company Parties, or just taking out a few friends for a great time on the Pacific Ocean. The crew will look for dolphins, whales, sea turtles, and more! Book one of these excursions directly with Sea Bird Sailing Excursions on their website: https://www.seabirdsailingexcursions.com/
