Close to centre, but down a side street so no noise. Family hotel so pools busy with people playing. Rooms very big with space to relax, downstairs rooms I think have full kitchen facilities, ours had lots off cooking related stuff but we did not use them. Breakfast good start to the day, but my egg was very salty, so next day I asked for no salt and was fine.Breakfast doesnt end really early unlike at some places. Check out at noon which is as good as we found in Costa Rica. Staff friendly and helpful. For the price paid this was the best value hotel we stayed at on our trip. The bed was not small unlike most over places we stayed in the country. Pillow was a bit small and soft, so had to ask for another one, there was also a lack of hooks to hang clothes/towels on, so we drapised stuff over the various furniture items. We arranged a private transfer to SJO airport at a price very similar to a shared shuttle service for 2 people, which was a pretty good deal and saved messing about with buses. We came from Quepos by public bus which was easy, cheap and less than 2 hours.

Local bus to Jaco took a bit less than 2 hours, seats not the most spacious but wasn't overly busy. We dropped our bags off, had a burger meal, then to look at the beach. Not exactly postcard pretty, but not horrific neither. Beach does not have typical facilities like drink or ice cream vendors. Surfing looked good first day, but we were a bit …
... horribly parallel parked the car, and we got out to walk around and find some magnets. The magnets were ok, but not great. After about 15 minutes of going back and forth between 5 shops, we decided to finally settle on some magnets and head back. As soon as we got back, I packed my backpack and headed straight for bed.
The next morning we woke up really early at 3:30am, and headed out for the checkout. We were promised breakfast packs for our early ...
What a blessing this trip has been for me already. I couldn't have asked to be with a greater group of men. Since being here I feel so free, breaking free from company emails, phone calls, and text has been amazing and given me so much time to just live and spend time with God in prayer. I have for the first time in my life confessed my sins (all of ...
I found Brooke wandering around the school, so I just decided to grab her and have her walk around Jaco with me. We had a great time, found a souvenir place I have to go back to, found a smoothie store (thank heavens - the heat today has been overwhelming!), and found some possible tours/adventures to go to. Brooke is a beauty -it's the half Asian in her, I tell you! She's lovely as lovely can get. Young 18 year old ready to take on the world. We got ...
... and I planned to do some shopping in Jaco, a bigger beach destination town about 25 minutes away.
Jill even woke up by 8:00am this morning and we were off an hour later. It's been beautiful here, sunny and high's in the mid-80s.
As laid back as Esterillos Oeste is with few tourists that I've seen so far, despite being the high season, Jaco is the opposite with busy streets and loads of people. ...
