My husband and I recently stayed at Coloso del Mar because of the great airfare to Costa Rica during the green season. The road into Zancudo was very difficult to navigate but staying at Coloso at this time of year was wonderful. A complete disconnect. A great mix of sun in the morning and rain in the evening. The great...

My wife and I have made the Coloso stay a number of times. The tropical location is just beautiful.The cabinas are comfy, clean and close to the ocean. The staff and owner Juan Carlos are amazingly helpful. The food at the restaurant is some of the best in Zancodo. We spent twelve days and hated to leave..........but we will return...

My husband and I were looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay near the beach in Playa Zancudo. Colosos del mar was just what we were hoping to find. The room was clean, quiet and had three fans. The beach was only a few steps away. The staff was friendly, the food at the restaurant was tasty and...

We were only here for 48 hours or so. The last time we stayed at Playa Zancudo was about 5 months ago. During the dry season the surf was quite calm and frankly we were looking for a calmer surf again this time. Little did we know that the swells that hit the beach are much larger during the "rainy...

My daughter and I visited Costa Rica for the first time and only had a week to get a sample of what CR offers. We wanted to have a day at the beach and this place was recommended by the owners at Finca Bella Vista. John Charles, the owner of Coloso, was great with communicating by email in a timely...

This was my first time in Playa Zancudo and decided to stay at Coloso del Mar because a friend recommended it. Everything about the place was just perfect. The cabin has a rustic vibe with its hard wood floors... reminiscent of a log cabin somewhere deep in the woods, just at the beach! The interior was roomy with plenty of...

A friend and I spent 3 nights last week in Playa Zancudo @ Coloso Del Mar. The experience was more, and better, than I had expected. The cabinas, while not luxurious, reminded me of a Northern Michigan cottage. They were spacious, cool (multiple fans) and immaculately clean; everything one needed was there. The property, while not huge, is tropical, beautiful...

My husband and I just spent a week staying at Coloso del Mar and would highly recommend it. The cabinas are spacious and immaculately clean with a beautiful porch to sit and admire the ocean view. They have a "rancho", a raised platform with a thatched roof that is close to the beach with wonderful hammocks where you can relax...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Home of the wanted and the unwanted! Or so goes a popular saying in these parts. Zancudo sometimes has the feeling of being at the end of the earth, Central Americas version of the South Seas. Hot, sultry and resplendent. I don't think there are any other colours of green possible. COLOSO DEL MAR sits in the midst of a tropical garden directly on one of the most outstanding black sand beachs in the world. We are located about forty minutes by boat from Golfito and fifty minutes by air from San Jose. We are a little more than one hour north of the border with Panama. ... more   less
