I brought my wife and 13 and 11 year-old, to Costa Rica for the first time. Christina made this happen by being available to answer questions by phone and email before we left. When we got there all was as promised, if not more delightful. Christina helped us book tours and activities and answered all questions. The Surf Inn was...

I am a female in my early twenties and decided to travel to Costa Rica on my own and could not be more happy I stayed with Christina at the Surf Inn for two weeks.

Understated beautiful property. This was my first trip to Costa Rica and the friendly staff made me feel comfortable and secure. Our room was clean, we had a kitchenette, and the inn is directly on the beach (absolutely beautiful). We found every thing we needed within walking distance (including a fabulous forest mountain hike across the street) and the native...

Surf Inn is a quiet little well kept spot right on one of the best surf breaks in the area. The rooms are great with a mini kitchen and fridge. Plenty of space to relax in after a long day out on the beach.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Jaco or Hermosa. Christina and her staff were absolutely wonderful. We couldn't have had a better spot on the beach. The hotel was not only clean and nicely decorated, but it also had everything we needed. It was great!!!!! I am never staying anywhere else when I come to Costa Rica.
