Another difference between Playas del Coco and Tamarindo is that in Tamairndo the main street runs along the beach, whereas in Playas del Coco the main street runs perpendicular to the beach, where it stops. There are very few businesses along the beach, in Playas del Coco. In fact, there is a school yard and some houses were local people live along the beach in Playas del Coco, whereas in Tamarindo there are condos ranging in price to more than a half million dollars (U.S.) near the beach, with virtually no Costa Ricans left. The condos in Playas del Coco are set up in the hills, overlooking the ocean.
