Coco Loco has five eco-friendly cabanas equipped with a double bed and a single bed, mosquito netting, fans, hammocks, and private porches. A composting toilet and star-gazing shower are located just outside each cabana.
Coco Loco is also very active in the community with a project called Waves of Hope that is focused on community development programs including providing English classes, after-school programs, and environmental awareness to the local village.
There is a gorgeous elevated ocean-view yoga studio perfect for stretching out between surf sessions and inspiring your practice.
There are several great surf spots within walking distance including a rocky left point and a user-friendly sandy bay with lefts and rights perfect for learning to stand up for the first time or perfecting your cutback.
Here’s a quick video of Holly longboarding at the bay.
