Playas del Coco School Turns 100  Today!

Playas del Coco School Turns 100

The whole town turned out for the festivities that included and true Guanacasteco Band, Food and Drink.

Things have come a long way since Playas del Coco’s humble beginnings (see The History of Playas del Coco)

The Town of Playas del Coco has come a long way too with the addition of the beach front Boardwalk and skate park that allows families to interact in a great environment and gives kids an important outlet that keeps them doing physical activity.

The Boardwalk or Paseo del Amor de Temporada (Summer Love Boardwalk) is now a great venue for all types of group activities and civic events.


As a testament to Playas del Coco’s growth – The School currently has over 600 students.  This is a public school and many students go to private schools.

So next time you are in Playas del Coco Check out the Boardwalk and remember it is for everyone to enjoy!
