Kitty (Nicaraguan)

She is our beloved pet.

You don't like cats? Wait until you've met her...

We do not allow any other pets to bring. 

The Manager:

Jan (German)

After traveling the world, Jan looked for a new adventure to take on and landed in Coco Beach. Originally from Germany he lived for many years in Mexico and just finished traveling all through Marokko, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. He always dreamt of living on a secluded beach and to be able to go surfing everyday. When La Veranera was looking for a new manager he saw his chance and moved to Nicaragua. 

Jim & Ina (American-German)

Jim discovered Playa El Coco on the search for the perfect spot to build his beachfront dream house in 2002. He immediately fell in love with the beautiful white sanded beach, that is not only very secluded, but also provides for his private little surf break in the back yard.

Ina moved to Nicaragua in August 2009. She first lived in Granada for a couple years where she did the marketing for a hostel and founded a small NGO dedicated to educational projects.

Jim and Ina met on the beach, fell in love and started La Veranera together.
