A trip booked on a whim for a long weekend getaway, I could not think of having stayed anywhere other than Perico Azul. Didn’t think possible for my trip to get much better than my first time in Costa Rica but second time around I guess I was wrong… hence, me writing another review. I contacted owners Mike & Celine...

My 4th stay and my 3rd review, everything is wonderful. Rooms, A/C, internet....Clean common area, Celine the manger is great and Mike's Tortuga surf camp is awesome.... The only place to stay, nothing fancy but quality, cleanliness and service.. Looking forward to another return.

This hostel is run by the very friendly couple Céline and Mike. It’s a small and cozy hotel situated a short walk from downtown Jacó. Jacó is not a big town, but there’s lots of tourists visiting and the main street can get a bit noisy during night. Therefore we enjoyed that Perico Azul wasn’t situated right in the middle... More

This hotel is in a beautiful spot just out of the centre of town. Just far enough away from the noise, but close enough that the walk is not too strenuous after a long day of surfing. Celine is an amazing host! Every time I come, she helps me with anything I need. From recommending good places to eat, to... More

We had the privilege to stay with Celine and Mike for five days at the beginning of November. They were the most welcoming and gracious hosts - on the first night, Mike drove us through Jaco to show us around and gave us restaurant and activity recommendations. He and Celine offered us rides in to the main part of Jaco,... More
