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
breaks for surfing. Any
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.
