Why Invest in, Buy or Rent a Cocomarindo Costa Rica Condo

A quiet residential area along the road to Ocotal in Playas del Coco, Cocomarindo offers apartment rentals with 1-bedroom or 2-bedroom units. The condos are fully furnished and come with conveniences like air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and internal parking. The complex boasts a private pool, laundry facilities, and 24/7 private security.

Why Cocomarindo

Renting or investing in Cocomarindo Condos is worthwhile as it is in a quiet area but also within walking distance to the downtown area of Coco Beach where many restaurants and bars are located. The complex is in the middle of a little plaza with an Italian pizza restaurant, a tattoo shop, a fresh fish market, and a mini grocery store.


Located in Playas del Coco, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, Cocomarindo is situated on the road to Playa Ocotal. The property is about 5 minutes walking distance to the far left end of El Coco Beach and about a 10-15 minute walk or a 3-5 minute drive to downtown where all the restaurants, bars, supermarkets, and banks are. Liberia International Airport (LIR) is a 40-minute drive away.


There are 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units available in Cocomarindo. The 1-bedrooms on either the ground or second floor allow up to 3 people, while the 2-bedrooms allow a maximum of 5 people. For disabled guests, the ground floor is more convenient as there are no elevators.

All the condos come fully furnished, with air conditioning in each room. The well-equipped kitchen in each unit has what you need to make meals at home. There is at least one full bathroom in each unit. Wifi is provided by the private host. There are flat-screen TVs with some including cable TV. Most units have an outdoor dining area on their terrace or balcony.


The large pool is a highlight of this complex. Situated right in the middle of the property, it includes a swim-up pool bar and hot tub, though in Costa Rica they are just normal temperature. It gives a resort-hotel feeling with the little island with palm trees in the middle of the pool, a bridge from one side to the other, and lots of greenery surrounding the area.

In the common areas, there is a laundry room with a washer and dryer. As well, there is internal parking for free. The gated community with 24/7 private security is one of the services provided to keep residents safe and comfortable.

Outside the gates is an Italian Pizzeria, La Caveja where you can sit and enjoy food and a drink with family or friends. A reservation is usually not needed. Pura Vida Tattoo Co., a mini-store, and a fish market are there making it a convenient location.
