I happened to be in Jaco when Costa Rica played in the World Cup and that was a fun time to be there. I watched games at the local restaurants and had a merry time watching the ticos celebrate there win. After they won a game, the streets filled up with cars and an impromtu parade broke out....
About the hotel, I stayed at the neighboring hotel, the Mau Mar. It is owned by the same people that own the Posado, Rob and Margaret. I was pleased to find the warmest and nice people there. Rob and Margaret were so nice and helped me find everything I needed in town. Rob was busy around the place keeping it shipshape, and they always had time for a brief chat. Margaret pointed out some local eateries.
I have to say some good things about the manager from The Netherlands, and I feel so stupid, but I forgot his name, and we became good buddies while I was there. He always offered to allow me to use the kitchen at the Mau Mar. He had very good insights about life in Costa Rica, as he is married to a tica. Both Rob and the manager were very knowledgeable about business and world affairs, and I enjoyed our morning talks. It was nice to have someone to converse with, since I was traveling alone, after dropping my daughter off at surf camp in Tamarindo.
Next time I am in Jaco, I am staying there so I can say hello to my new friends. My apologies for forgetting the name of the general manager, he was a really cool guy!
