This was my first time in Costa Rica and I'm go glad I kicked it off with Hotel Perico Azul!
My buddy and I arrived in the afternoon and were immediately greeted by Mike who checked us in and gave us details for partaking in surf lessons the following morning.
Our room was comfy and clean and the community kitchen and hang-out places were as well.
Tortuga Surf camp operates out of this same hotel so it's extremely convenient to get excellent instruction or rent a board from their great spot on the beach for the day.
The vibe was much more friendly and open that your average hotel or hostel, Ruca and Gala (the dogs) and the cats really made it feel much more like a home.
As a surfer it was a really cool course that was catered to their beach and waves but could definitely be applied anywhere. As a guest the main strip of the town was quite close (10-15min walk) and there were many excellent restaurants and bars.
Mike and Céline went above and beyond for us and I will definitely be going back to stay with them again. I just got back yesterday and already miss it!More
