Beach Rental Description:
Hotel La Tranquilidad is gated and surrounded by a white rail fence with green diamonds. The onsite caretaker and the night guard maintain the security of the property. Each large hotel room has hot water shower in the private bath, tile flooring, air conditioning, ceiling fan, and covered tile porch with hammock. One has 1 double bed. Two have 2 double beds and 2 single beds, bunked. The fourth has one double, 2 singles, and one bunk bed. The fully-equipped kitchen and dining terraza are in an adjacent building.

Hotel La Tranquilidad is located about 5 miles from Parrita on the small island of Palo Seco, accessed by a short bridge. The island is about 9 km long and 400 meters wide. There are mostly beach houses and private residences of local Costa Rican families on the island. There are also two large hotels and three restaurants/bars which service the local people and beach visitors.

Hotel La Tranquilidad is oceanfront on a huge wide sandy beach at the front, and on the wide estuary at the back with an awesome view of the mountains behind the water. The swimming pools are centered on the property. The recreational rancho has a billiard table, foosball table, and darts. The beach is wonderful for shelling, swimming, surfing, walking or fishing. Sunrises and sunsets over the ocean on this south-facing island are magnificent! This is a tranquil setting you will never forget!

For the adventurous there is much to see and do beyond the tranquility of the hotel. Manual Antonio National Park is about 40 minutes south. Adjacent to the park is Quepos, an oceanfront city with nightlife, a small airport, and a hospital. Jaco, about 40 minutes north, is known for its nightlife and surfing beach. Sportfishing, mangrove tours, canopy tours, horseback riding, 4 wheeler tours, white water rafting, paramotoring, kayaking, and more are available nearby. Mountains and rain forests are waiting to be explored. Endangered giant sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs every year at Palo Seco. The onsite property manager is there to advise and arrange tours of all kinds for guests.

For the most immediate needs, the bustling town of Parrita is only a 10 minute drive from the cabinas. Parrita has banks, supermarkets, restaurants, shopping, and a medical clinic. There are taxis, and bus service to Quepos, Jaco, and San Jose. Parrita hasn't become a tourist town yet, but retains the character and charm of small-town Costa Rica. Credit for this belongs to the wonderful, friendly, and helpful people of the community. They truly live PURA VIDA!
