The perfect beach resort, Alma Del Pacifico, Distinctive Hotel’s newest addition
Situated right on the beach in Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Playa Esterios Este, the brightly colored, fresh and elegant Hotel Alma Del Pacifico is the latest portfolio addition for Distinctive Hotels of Costa Rica.
Conveniently located just an hour and 45 minutes from Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, Alma Del Pacifico is perfectly placed just 25 minutes south of Jaco Beach (with all of its nightlife, entertainment, shopping and activities) and an hour north of Costa Rica’s renowned Manuel Antonio National Park.
Tranquil and secluded, Esterillos is a collection of beach communities named for the region’s estuaries and rivers: Esterillos Oeste (West), Esterillos Centro (Centro) and Esterillos Este (East). Very few people, miles of dark-sand shoreline, and awesome surf breaks best describe the area. Majestic palms and almond trees line the forest edge, meeting consistently perfect surf breaks and tide pools, which invite you to go for a swim or catch some awesome waves on your board.
Plenty to do
Lounge in a hammock strung up between two palms, splash in the tide pools, and comb the beaches of Esterillos as the breathtaking cotton candy pinks and oranges of the Pacific sunset reflect off the iridescent outgoing tide. And, that’s just for an evening’s pursuit.
After sunset, enjoy drinking and dining right in the resort or head up the road to Jaco where there are a number of excellent restaurants, bars, clubs and casinos for a fun night on the town.
Just a few of the top daytime activities in the area include sport fishing out of Los Sueños Marina or Marina Pez Vela in Quepos, river rafting, horseback riding along the shore, canopy tours (aerial tram or zip-line- there are options for everyone), ATV tours, hiking, surf lessons, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling, kayaking, and waterfall climbing.
