This was my first trip to Costa Rica, spurred by a desire to learn to surf. I had spent most of the time planning the surfing lessons and honestly hadn't given the accommodation much thought! Perico Azul was absolutely perfect, and I had a wonderful stay here. It's great for solo travellers wanting to learn to surf (as its partnered...

I went to Hotel perch azul with 3 girlfriends, we arrived late in the day and had called Mike to ask him to order us a pizza as we were all starving and exhausted, this was one of the many times this week he and Celine went above and beyond for us. Upon arriving we were greeted by Mike and...

We did not expect much when we booked our 2 night stay at Perico Azul but we had a wonderful time. Mike and Celine are amazing hosts. Mike took the time to show us around town when we arrived. They give you a lot of suggestions about the restaurants, tours and souvenir shops. Not only the give you suggestions but...

A trip booked on a whim for a long weekend getaway, I could not think of having stayed anywhere other than Perico Azul. Didn’t think possible for my trip to get much better than my first time in Costa Rica but second time around I guess I was wrong… hence, me writing another review. I contacted owners Mike & Celine...

This is the greatest place I have ever stayed at while traveling. Mike and Celine made my stay so comfortable and easy. Any questions about where to eat, how to get to the beach, how to get from point a to point b, currency conversion, etc. were quickly and knowledgeably answered. Mike and Celine made it really easy for my...

My 4th stay and my 3rd review, everything is wonderful. Rooms, A/C, internet....Clean common area, Celine the manger is great and Mike's Tortuga surf camp is awesome.... The only place to stay, nothing fancy but quality, cleanliness and service.. Looking forward to another return.

This hostel is run by the very friendly couple Céline and Mike. It’s a small and cozy hotel situated a short walk from downtown Jacó. Jacó is not a big town, but there’s lots of tourists visiting and the main street can get a bit noisy during night. Therefore we enjoyed that Perico Azul wasn’t situated right in the middle...

This hotel is in a beautiful spot just out of the centre of town. Just far enough away from the noise, but close enough that the walk is not too strenuous after a long day of surfing. Celine is an amazing host! Every time I come, she helps me with anything I need. From recommending good places to eat, to...
