Playas del Coco
The residents from Playas del Coco call themselves Coqueños. Especially in the weekends Coqueños love going to the beach with their families, hand line fishing, and playing rambunctious games of soccer. There is a wide array of locally owned sodas that serve delicious local staples such as Casados (a dish made with rice, beans, fried plantains and a protein), Arroz con Pollo (chicken and rice) as well as the ubiquitous licuados (blended fruit drinks) and of course Costa Rica’s famed beer, Imperial.
