Hello to the TripAdvisor forum community.

There are no wildfires at this time in the area. There is some red tide, but it is not the end of the world, it moves around, so people can swim in certain areas.

Please Help! My family and I are going to Playas Del Coco April 14 to the 21. We heard about the red tide and and are very worried! Can someone please advise us about the red tide in that area?

Red tides change all the time. It could be there today and gone tomorrow so really, what is happening now has nothing to do with what the conditions will be in a week. It all depends on temperature, currents, rainfall and things like this.

If you arrive and there is a red tide there, it's not the end of the world because there are some beautiful beaches nearby that you could visit.
