The owners and staff welcome you to the Hotel Poseidon, our small piece of paradise in Jacó Beach, Costa Rica. Jaco Beach is a short 1 hour and 15 minutes from the San Jose airport (SJO), and is the closest beach town to San Jose.
The hotel with its 14 rooms, bar and restaurant, just 1/2 block from the volcanic sand beach to the west and the mountain side tropical jungle to the east, and set in the heart of the lively town of Jacó. Located on a quiet street, yet close to all the town has to offer.
Jacó (pronounced ha-cO) is about 90 minutes from San José, making it one of the closest and most convenient beach towns to the international airport of Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) outside San José. Jacó is a lively, local village with casinos, retail shopping outlets, discos and many restaurants offering a variety of international cuisine.
While staying at the Hotel Poseidon, we can make tour arrangements for all the activities and day trips which Costa Rica has to offer. Then after a day in the rainforest, come back to your private room or relax at our pool bar with a cool drink.
Your hosts, Chrissy and Tim welcome you to the Hotel Poseidon. We look forward to seeing people from our home towns of Georgia, Tennessee and Colorado, but are especially excited about meeting guests from all over the world.
Hotel Poseidon is located smack-dab-in-the-middle of Jaco, so guests at the Hotel Poseidon do NOT need a car. Shopping, bars, restaurants, grocery stores and the beach are all within very close walking distances. And if they are farther away than you want to walk, Taxis are very easy to catch and very inexpensive. Most places around Jaco will only cost you about $2-3 each way.
If you do however wish to have a car, please be advised of the following options for parking your car:
Street Parking – FREE, but sometimes hard to find really close to the hotel and is not always secure. Many many people do park on the street and never have problems with theft. But if you park on the street, make sure you take out ALL valuables and anything that may look appealing to theives. And if you can move your car to a spot directly in front of the hotel, our guard at night will help deter any problems from happening to the car. We cannot guarantee the safety of your car on the street, but parking in front of the hotel before you go to sleep at night is one suggestion we can make.
Private Parqueo El Paso Parking Lot Across from Poseidon – For Hotel Guests they are offering a special rate of $13 per rental night (24 hours maximum). This is a private lot which has cameras and a security guard there from 6am-10pm. But, be aware, they close and lock the gates from 10pm-6am and will NOT open them until they open up again at 6am. Parking fee will be paid directly to the parking attendant and not to the Hotel Poseidon.
