La Palmera is located just five hundred meters away from the beach (you are allowed to park your car right on top of the beach). This small hotel is carefully attended by their owners, a courteous French young couple. The rooms, though small, are larger than those in two-star Paris hotels and are equipped with television and air conditioning. The room surrounds a well-maintained small garden as well as a clean swiming pool perfectly comfortable for making laps. The room price includes a sumptuous breakfast. To reach "La Palmera" from San José take the westbound road to Orotina and be ready for a sign to Jacó right after the Orotina toll booth (otherwise you will end up in Caldera, a Pacifique Ocean Port).
Upon reaching the first entrance to Jacó (an hour and a half from leaving San José) continue driving until you see a “Municipalidad” sign at your right. Every now and then the sign disappears, due to car crashes, and you will end up in a desert beach; in that case, turn back and then left at the second entrance to your left. You will find “La Palmera” about one hundred meters from the road, at your left. You will enjoy very good hospitality at low cost.
