If you are thinking to visit Jaco and surf this is the place to be. The owners Celine and Mike can answered any question you have....

I have to thank Micheal and Celine for making me feel immediately welcome, and for ensuring that my stay there was such a good one. Apart from the fact that you have two excellent hosts that will go out of their way for you to feel at home, you will be greeted by spotless rooms, every amenity you could ask...

First, thank you so much Mike and Celine for having us! We really had the best time, and you guys are amazing! Never ever have we experience such hospitality! Celine showed us the city, and all the cute restaurants, she also showed us where to hike and what to do when we weren't surfing! Mike is really the best surf...

What do you look for in a hotel? For me, safety first. The last thing you wanna happen to you on a trip/vacation is theft, stolen passport/phone money etc' right? This is not gonna happen here. The hotel is super safe, all gates looked at all times, they really put an effort on that issue and there is always someone...

I traveled to Costa Rica for the first time to complete my yoga teacher training certification, and I fell in love with everything about it instantly! Hotel Perico Azul was the absolute perfect place to stay! With an only 5 minute walk from the beach in one direction, and a 5 minute walk to town in the other, it's the...

Given the great reviews the Hotel Perico Azul always gets, I expected a nice hotel. But it is much more. It is difficult to conceptualize how Celine and Mike can maintain such a level of investiture in all of their guests, but they do. I stayed at several high end hotels in the Cayuga collection during my stay, but this...

We found this hotel pretty randomly, just looking for a nice place to stay near the beach in Jaco. What a great find!! Mike and Celine are incredibly friendly. The first thing they did when we checked in was give us a driving tour of Jaco to show us good places to eat, etc. The hotel is small, quiet, and...

My two girlfriends and I decided to book with this hotel after it was recommended by our friend who is a repeat visitor. This was my first time to Costa Rica and definitely not my last. The hotel is situated in Jaco, a really beautiful town catering to surfing, food, nightlife, with a strong sense of community. It is secluded...
