Its pretty fulfilling to see our little place in this tiny town on the Costa Rican coastline receive so much positive press coverage in the short time we have been open.

This was posted this morning on Trip Advisor, a leading travel site with reviews and opinions, by a visitor about their experience
" Koki Beach - we picked this place due to the beautiful ocean view it has. Their yucca chips were awesome and I had the tilapia with Caribbean sauce. The view and the ambiance were amazing, and it was probably my favorite meal of my trip.
The county of Talamancas indigenous community is easy to reach from the beach towns of Puerto Viejo and Cahuita. Rich in culture and customs its well worth a visit. Koki Beach incorporated handcrafts ranging from lamps made from "hickaras" and baskets woven from local plants. This matriarch is preparing the palm leaves used for basket weaving in her abode made from palm trunks and raised above ground on stilts
Beach Restaurant Bar+Lounge is a concept capturing the essence of Costa Rica and its eco friendly spirit, KOKi Beach embraces it's environment and community in which it lives. Working with principally local materials, artisans and incorporating mostly reused, reclaimed and repurposed elements this unique space was created. This was accomplished by capturing such things as the wood from an abandoned house in Hone Creek, which now serve as tables and seating for the restaurant as well as the decorative entry feature, the bar bodega and decorative elements. Local river stones were used for the building support as well as the unique bar back wall, while the lamps are a combination of carvings by the local indigenous community in Bribri and a local artisan who specializes in beadwork. KOKi Beach is a showcase of local craftmanship and shows how using the knowledge and traditions of the community one can truly create a modern and environmentally friendly space.
