Playa Cocalito

A 30-minute walk from Drake Bay, this isolated beach is only about 200 feet in length. Traversing a beautiful -- albeit wobbly -- suspension bridge over the Agujitas River along the way is half the fun. Playa Cocalito is often completely deserted, despite its close proximity to the small hotels in the area. Monkeys inhabit the rainforest that borders the shore, and snorkelers can spot a slew of marine life offshore when waters are calm.
