TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Catalina Jaco
We like this place so much, we have been here 3 different times since our stay for 3 months in Costa Rica. The family who owns it are wonderful and service is amazing. Amenities include a pool and the hotel is just steps away from the beach with good waves for beginning surfers or for a lovely stroll on the beach. Sunsets are breath taking here as well.

It was now 7am … do we chance it with waiters in the dining room or go to the trough? We went to the trough. Doug got a seat – a window seat too - while I got his cereal, yoghurt and fruit then went back for mine. No ...
... to be the first one to board the gondola and sit at the front of it for better picture opportunities! Instead, Michel and I were placed in the fourth row, the one before the last! :-(
While being seated in this gondola high above the treetops, the tram glided slowly but surely through a living backdrop of giant trees, hanging ...
... have accommodated rock and film stars, luckily for us the GI mob had exclusives access for day tours, next was the obligatory shopping stop at a tourist outlet in the country I fib - there was one more stop, we asked Chris if we could go to a local supermarket - and he gladly obliged - we we're enthrall by the variety of goods sold there - everything from fresh meat to car tyres. Back at the dock, there was a local market, so we had time to peruse it before setting sail for ...
