Playa Cocles is a small Caribbean village
on the coast just south of Puerto Viejo, Limon,
Costa Rica. It is a very small town, there's
not much there except two stores, a school and a
soccer field. Cariblue is actually located 150 mt.
from the beach referred to locally as "beach
break" because there is no coral reef here
and the waves break directly on the beach. Cariblue
supports the lifeguard program at Playa Cocles.
Local businesses have contributed to pay for lifeguards
at Playa Cocles to help keep our beaches safe. Please
help us by donating to the lifeguard program. The
people of Playa Cocles are warm and friendly, in
the manner common to very small towns. The community
has a strong and diverse cultural background, consisting
mostly of Latino ticos and afro-Caribbean’s,
with a few foreign immigrants mixed in.
The atmosphere is
welcoming and relaxed, and you often see people
standing around in the street laughing and talking.
The soccer (called football locally) field is the
main focus of the community. People get together
once a week for the big soccer game, the only big
event in town. Soccer is the national sport of Costa
Rica without question, and the "football"
games usually draw a good crowd.
The beaches in this region are
excellent. Beach break itself was awarded the Blue
Flag for ecological quality, and is one of the most
popular beaches in the area. The other beaches near
Playa Cocles are also beautiful and inviting. The
wave is good enough for surfing, but there are many
spots where you can find calm, protected pools perfect
for swimming. The lovely white sands, clear blue
Caribbean Sea, and rich greenery make this a favourite
