About
Description
Pelican Beach Front Hotel is your perfect Costa Rican get away! With its colorful decor and friendly staff this boutique hotel sits on the ‘Riviera of the Central Pacific.’ Because of the unique geographic More positioning of our 11-mile long, chocolate-colored sand beach, this is one of the a few places in the world where you can enjoy amazing sunrises and beautiful sunsets as well. It’s where the jungle meets the sand, and you’re right in the middle of it. Relax on the beach or let our staff help you plan a day filled with adventure: zip lines, canopy tours, surfing lessons, waterfall tours, catamaran cruises, mangrove monkey tours, sports fishing, kayaking, horse back riding, massage or yoga classes, and so much more! Afterward, return to our beachfront paradise for the Daily Sunset Happy Hour. Our casual patio restaurant is open 7am until 10pm to serve you breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our varied menu includes the best coconut curry on the planet. The hotel has 14 rooms and two private homes, a full bar and restaurant all located on Playa Esterillos Este, conveniently located just 30 minutes from Costa Rica's most popular tourist destinations, Jaco, Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park and only 90minutes from San Jose airport Less
