Apartotel Girasol, meaning 'sunflower apartments' in Spanish, offers 16 one-bedroom apartments, each with a fully equipped kitchen, living area and beds for up to four guests. The hotel is located right on the beach in Jacó about a block off Main Street in Jacó, Costa Rica. Girasol is a clean and convenient base for your Costa Rican adventure.

Inspired by the tropics, the hotel's décor includes cool tile floors, rattan furniture with overstuffed cushions, wispy gauze curtains and tropical plants. All rooms have a private balcony or terrace that face the pool, and beach access is a few steps away. Rooms are available on the ground floor or take an iron spiral staircase to rooms on the first floor. Girasol aims to combine the amenities of a hotel with the privacy of a home.

Grounds are landscaped with lush grass and tropical plants like palm trees and hibiscus. Stroll past wooden rocking chairs and stone benches on your way through the private gardens and arrive directly on the beach. Relax by the beach or pool after a long day spent exploring all Jacó and the surrounding area have to offer. Take in ocean breezes and watch a sunset on the Pacific Ocean from your patio or the beach-front gardens.

Upon your arrival in Costa Rica at Juan Santamaría International Airport in San José, you can request the hotel has a taxi waiting to drive you to the hotel. The 90-kilometer trip takes about an hour and a half. Apartotel Girasol is in a central Jacó location just off Main Street and close to all the town has to offer. For your safety, the hotel provides on-site security 24 hours a day.

Take a short walk from the resort to downtown's shopping and restaurants. There are also many excursions available from Apartotel Girasol. The helpful hotel staff can arrange golfing, surfing, bicycling and snorkeling activities nearby. Farther afield, check out adventure tours for bird watching, climbing a volcano, white-water rafting and horseback riding. The hotels' friendly staff can organize surfing, snorkeling, scuba trips and other exciting activities.
