We popped in for our first night in Costa Rica, on our way down to Osa peninsula. Liked everything so much we came back to stay for our last 2 night in CR. Lively and beautiful environment. Pura Vida!

I have stayed many times at the Pelicano. They are consistently friendly, and comfortable at good price. The kitchen never disappoints and the managers work hard to make you feel welcome and at home. The Pelicano is a gem.
