This is a cute small 6-room hotel two blocks from the beach and two blocks from the town center. It is located on the south end of town (the quieter end). It is a great place for a peaceful stay.
Every room is simply put together, air-conditioned, TV, internet, and spotlessly clean. Fresh flower blooms were placed each day as a nice touch. There is a small 5-foot deep pool in the nicely appointed courtyard that is perfect for cooling off. For us, after four weeks of traveling and eating out, the ability to use the kitchen here was a treat to make and prepare our own food for a change, though Jaco has lots of great restaurants.
The best thing about Hotel Perico Azul is the owners. Celine and Mike are amazing. So welcoming and so friendly. It is clear from the first moment through the last that they care 100% about each and every guest's well-being and experience. I have been traveling for 30 years, and their approach to customer service ranks among the very top of anywhere I have stayed.
By the way, Mike runs a top-flight surf instruction company called Tortuga Surf, so while you are staying here, be sure to take a lesson or two.
This is not the Hilton or Hyatt style hotel. It is better. The vibe is simple, and kind, and local. You absolutely have to stay here when you are in Jaco.
