I went to Caza Olas and intended to stay a few days. I ended up there for 3 months. This is a great hostel for anyone who wants to experience Pavones. It takes 2 minutes to walk to the wave. The kitchen may be the cleanest I have seen in any hostel, and the same can be said for the... More

Caza Olas feels like home and is a hostel with family flair. It is in the center of Pavones, 2 min walk to the perfect wave of Pavones!... More

Pavones is no secret to the initiated and I am now pleased to be in on it. We stayed a week and Jenny the housekeeper/secretary/guide/all round beautiful person made our time there amazing. She embodies Costa Rican hospitality and made our stay really enjoyable even when we were annoying, mucking around with our booking. The facilities have all you need... More
