Hot Coco (はっけん！ カリブのだいじけん lit. Discovery! Caribbean Big Event in Japanese) is the twenty-ninth level in in Crash Bandicoot: Warped and its remake in the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy. It is one two optional levels in Warped, along with Eggipus Rex.
This level's name is a pun on "hot cocoa."
Hot Coco is a secret level that was hidden within Warped, it is accessed by hitting an alien sign in Road Crash.
Taking place at sunset, it features Coco on her jetski. When she enters the level, she is spawned right besides the exit warp. However the path is blocked by floating nitro crates. To pass them, Coco needs to find the nitro switch crate to detonate the nitro and then exit the level. There is a gem and relic available for collecting in this stage. The gem is awarded for collecting all the crates. To collect the relic, you will need to memorise the quickest route to the switch and collect time crates along the way to help freeze the clock.
- In the NTSC-U version of the game, when this level accessed through Road Crash the relic times used for the time trial will be the same as that level and not the times listed here.
- During development, the level was called "Ski Crazed", which was eventually used for a different level
- In order to prevent the player from breaking the Nitro crates at the beginning, Aku Aku is completely removed from this level, even if the player enters the level with an Aku Aku mask.
- This level appears in the hidden level of the time twister as level 31 once 31 or more crystals are collected, which can only be done through exploits. This is the only way to get the correct relic times for this level on the NTSC-U version.
