In the Cozuma region, one of the country’s biggest tourist hotspots, the only way to get a decent meal is to head north.
“If you’re in Cochin or any of the other cities along the coast, there’s no shortage of great places to stay,” said David Condon, the chief executive of travel website TravelSpy.
“I can’t think of any that I’ve visited that have made it as far north as Cozumba.”
But the city is also a popular place for those seeking a taste of the island’s culture.
“It’s really a cultural capital of the Cochin region and has an incredible culture,” he said.
“There’s nothing quite like going to Cochin.”
Cochin, which is home to the Coquihalla Islands National Park, is one of three islands in the region, along with the smaller Tofu Islands and the small islands of Bora Bora.
In terms of size, Cochin is a collection of islands, with the smallest being just 20km from Cochin’s coast.
“You’re a small island, surrounded by a sea and all of the islands are surrounded by water,” Mr Condon said.
Cochin has been named one of The 100 most beautiful islands in New Zealand by the Travel Spy website, with its beaches, turquoise waters and sparkling turquotes as well as the famous “Cochin Sea” (which is the name given to the sand dunes in the area).
“There are so many beautiful spots that you can spend the whole day here, you can swim in the water and it’s really easy to get there,” Mr Stoll said.
He also said Cochin was the most popular place to visit if you wanted to stay on a budget.
“Cozumeli is a really affordable option,” Mr Jansen said.
For those looking for a bit of a change, the Cochiapake National Park is located about 15km north of Cochin.
“The park is a great place to take in a spectacular sunset in the summertime, or get away from the crowds,” Mr Hickey said.
Mr Jordon said people should take into account the weather in the Cochaca Islands, which are in the north of the region.
“With that being said, if you’re planning to spend some time in the islands, you should definitely stay out of the rain,” he advised.
For the best prices, you need to know where to go The Cochin International Airport (CICA) is located in the centre of the city and serves a lot of flights.
The airport has a large terminal and a lot more than a few flights.
If you want to book flights on the weekend, check the flight options page on the airport website.
Mr Cordon said the airport also offered a wide range of flights, from low-cost to high-end.
“In the last few years, there has been a significant growth in the number of non-stop flights to and from Cochatecac, so you’re going to see a lot less of the domestic and non-commercial services that you would normally see in the past,” he added.
The biggest drawback to flying to Cochaciapake is the fact that it can be a little pricey for those travelling from the mainland.
“People are coming to the islands because they want to go to Cochi and Cochin,” Mr Maseo said.
It’s a shame because there’s so much to do in the city, with restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants all having an impact on the culture.
The island of Tofuta is also popular with locals, with a large cultural centre and a shopping district that attracts visitors from all over the country.
“Tofuta has some of the best restaurants in the world,” Mr Ritchie said.
While it is relatively cheap, you might be tempted to stick to the touristy areas for a meal.
“But it’s not really about the price, it’s about the experience,” Mr Worsley said.
In the north-east of the area, the most famous beaches in the country are Cochin Beach, which has the largest sand dune at 8km long, and the beautiful coastline of the Coral Sea.
“Visitors can see the beaches from any of their hotels,” Mr Elling said.
The Coral Sea, which also has a unique beach, is home both to tourists and locals.
The tourist-focused area of the beach is popular with people from the north and south, with many families visiting the area.
“Some of the locals have really big boats and they can go on the Coral River, which leads to the Coral Beach and the Coral Island,” Mr O’Reilly said.
A good night out on the water with the locals is something to do when you’re not in town, and that’s what Cochin locals love. The Co
