Many tourists visit this town on their way to the beaches. There is a private and a public health clinic in town, as well as a small hospital. A kilometer out of Cóbano there is a gasoline station, good to refuel before heading south to the beaches. A few supermarkets and hardware stores are found around town as well. If you happen to be here in February or March, a major attraction is also its annual rodeo which lasts three days, which starts with a horse parade. There is also a big fair held with bull riding, food stalls and plenty of dancing.
