Playas del Coco scores another goal!


Playas del Coco is an organized and very active community that in recent years has made great progress in its urban infrastructure, and with it has improved the quality of life of its residents.

Four years ago the shoreline was fully recovered, and 2 years later a beautiful boardwalk was inaugurated. More recently the main street was widened and repaved.

Now another longed-for project that benefits all neighbors has been completed:  An ample Communitarian Center that after being inaugurated by President Chinchilla in December 2103 became available for residents and organized groups of this community for the development of educational, recreational and social activities; in addition to a Center of Care for Senior Citizens. 

This project, that had to fight for the funds during several years, took shape thanks to the concerted efforts of the Communitarian Alliance of Development; conformed by ADICOCO, members of the Municipality of Carrillo, representatives of responsible businesses and local groups.

But no all in Coco is a bed of roses:  This Center still needs funds for adequate equipment and furniture, so if you or your company want to support this initiative, please contact ADICOCO (Association for Local Development of Playas del Coco) to inquire about the needs and process for donations.  All donations are tax deductible.
