As someone who lives in Jaco and who has traveled all over the world for the last 25 years, I am glad I found Doce Lunas. It is a study in contrasts. On one side it is in Jaco, a great surf town with a lively nightlife. On another side, once you go through the large metal gates at the entrance you are transported to a magical hotel in the Costa Rican jungle. Chris, the owner and his staff do a great job and I always make it up there for their Friday happy hours as it allows folks to enjoy friends, bocas and cocktails while listening to nothing but the sound of the jungle.
I have introduced many out of town friends to Doce Lunas and have suggested to folks coming down. As a matter of fact, a friend from NYC is coming to Jaco for his 50th birthday next year. The hotel he found (and booked) on his own? Yep, Doce Lunas.
In todays "build everywhere" world, it is refreshing to find a hidden gem like Doce Lunas.
