Las Brisas is a charming little place, a bit off the beaten path, just a few miles south of Jaco. My daughter and I stayed there for a week and we were very happy with our experience. The free breakfasts are excellent. The pool is lovely and well-kept. The rooms are clean and comfortable. In addition, the owners are very friendly and work hard to take care of their guests. Rachelle arranged several tours for us as well as surfing lessons and rides to and from the airport. We had no complaints at all!

If you are looking for a $300/night hotel with a pool bar, lots of people and loud music – this is not it! But, if you are looking for a quiet, enjoyable, well-kept and very affordable place to unwind, relax and soak up the wonderful Costa Rican weather – this is the place!
