Halloween 2019 Playas del Coco Costa Rica

When you think of Halloween in a beach town you automatically think about a bunch of Facebook pictures of drunk adults going all out on their costumes, trying to outdo their friends for the best looking goblin, ghoul or ghost.  Well our little slice of paradise in Playas del Coco is no different – We adults go ALL OUT.

But of course Halloween is really all about kids having fun with their families.  You would be surprised how many kids there are in our area that celebrate Halloween.  This year literally 100’s of kids and their families turned out for the 2nd Annual COCO CANDY CRAWL.  Many thanks to Madison O’Bryan for arranging such a successful event.  Instead of going home to home Trick or Treating like you did as a kid, Madison had the great idea to recruit all the local businesses along the main street in Playas del Coco to give out candy to all the costumed kids (and some adults too!) who came and asked nicely.  Since most of the local business owners have kids and if not they  certainly couldn’t resist welcoming hundreds of Trick or Treaters to their door, the event has become a resounding success.  It works out perfect as all the candy stops are very close to each other and in open, public areas.

What is the Costa Rica dress code?


What is the name of this website?



That is our dress code.

Costa Rica dress code is tank tops and flip flops

Literally, you can go anywhere in this town, in shorts and T shirts. I work every day, in a pair of Tommy Bahama shorts and Polo Shirt, with a pair of Flip Flops. I could go to a wedding or a funeral dressed like that, and no one would be offended. As a matter of fact, they would probably be dressed the same way.

But the nice thing is, you can also get dressed up, and you would still fit right in. Whatever floats your boat, as they say. That’s the Costa Rica dress code.

The only exception to this, is if you visit one of the resorts and eat in their fine dining restaurants; like the Four Seasons or the Mangroove Marriott. You don’t need a coat and tie by any means, but they would probably not let you in wearing a Tank Top.

Come on down baby!

See you soon.
