Highs & Lows

  • COMO Cocoa is a true barefoot island. We only wore our shoes when we arrived and when we departed.

  • Swimming in the morning from the terrace. All the rooms are over-the water-bungalows. Lots of amazing dive sites just a short boat ride away, including night diving with UV lights.

  • The food was incredible. Only one restaurant, but they do it well with a rotating menu.

  • The sandbar and the spa are to die for.

  • Great service, with great attention to detail.

  • There are a couple of islands nearby that are built up with buildings, not so great for the 360 view around the island.
