Beautiful KOKi Beach in Costa Rica Embraces the Environment With a Sustainable Spirit

Capturing the essence of Costa Rica  and its sustainable spirit, KOKi Beach  embraces the environment and community in which it rests through a wide range of eco practices. Working principally with local materials, artisans and by incorporating mostly reused, reclaimed and repurposed elements, they created a unique haven for locals and visitors to enjoy. Local river stones were used for the building support as well as the bar’s back bar wall, while the lamps are a combination of carvings by the local indigenous community in Bribri and a local artisan who specializes in beadwork. Even wood from an abandoned house in Hone Creek now serves as tables and seating for the restaurant, as well as a decorative entry feature. KOKi Beach is a showcase of local craftsmanship, and exemplifies how using the knowledge and traditions of the community can create a modern and environmentally friendly space.
