If you want to get an overview of where you are, see Toucans in an adjacent tree, be close to Carara National Park and Lapas Skywalk, this is the place to stay in Tarcoles. Sited on a bluff overlooking the forest and the sea, this is a unique option to take in this little not yet overdeveloped piece of Costa Rican coast. The little hotel itself is a grand idea about 80 percent executed- but the staff is very accommodating and the views are superb. A little road work is in its final stages and all should be more bucolic once complete. It is a little drive to the restaurants along the coast, including the as yet unrated Restaurantetico- which was great for Ceviche and Patacones Especial.
