    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.

    spent two weeks in shorts or scrubs, and bathing suits.

    We took several pictures of Osama. He looked ferocious and mean. On the way back to where we started, we saw a glimpse of Osama once again. This time, we only saw a part of his head above the water and then he swam away.

    Since we didn't see any toucans during our boat ride, Luis took us to a beach where a pair of toucans have their nests. We spotted them right away and Luis set up his binocular for ...

    3- It's one of the best places in the world to learn how to surf but... es muy difícil aprender el surf. Apparently between 2-3 hours before high tide the beaches of Jaco offer something of a surfing paradise for all those learning to surf. That might be true but it doesn't mean that we'll be "hanging ten" any time soon (at least, not on purpose). I'm not sure if it's a complete lack of flexibility, bad joints, or ...

    ... him to ensure the family ate that week. Not that it always worked so smoothly. Even when Diego complied to all standards, fair trade frequently 'forgot' to pay them on time or even in the same month. And the real rub? For the same output of 40kg, with three times the labour and precision and inspectors checking and certification hoops to jump through, Diego got 15 dollars. Twenty less than when he keeps it real simple - and local. Reliving this dilemma with fire in his ...
