Playa Palo Seco

Hotel La Tranquilidad, with beautiful oceanfront rentals, is located at Isla Palo Seco on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, approximately 2 ½ hours from San Jose, 40 km south of Jaco, and 22 km north of Quepos.  From the airport in San Jose , take the road to Jaco.  Continue past Jaco through Parrita, and after crossing the new bridge, turn right to Playa Palo Seco.  Follow this road about 2 miles and across a short bridge which is the entrance to the island.  Turn left on the island road and continue for about 5 miles. You can't miss us, just keep coming. There is a sign in front - Hotel La Tranquilidad.  The island is about 9 km long and 400 meters wide.  It has mostly beach houses and private residences of native Costa Rican families.  There are two restaurants/bars on the island which service the local people and beach visitors.

Playa Palo Seco is just beginning to be noticed by tourists on Tropical Holiday who stay at beach houses for rent.  There may be few other people on the wide sandy beach.  The ocean has great Pacific Coast breaks for surfing.  Any Costa Rica beach vacation is complete with shelling for Palo Seco sand dollars and polished semi-precious stones, biking, sunbathing, taking a relaxing stroll, or surf fishing.   Exceptional sunrises and sunsets over the ocean on this south-facing island are truly unique and magnificent.
