"Playa Palo Seco is a hidden jewel on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. It's in front of a fantastic beach with a great view. Come spend your time on our great pool or diving right in front of our place at a fabulously affordable price."

The surf

Peak swell
Variable swell

Palo Seco Beach is a great area for beginners and intermediate surfers. The best season to surf on the Pacific Coast is during the rainy season between May to November, when there are fewer crowds and you can be almost sure that you will have the waves for yourself.

The waves break to the left and to the right over a sandy bottom. Close to our hotel in Playa Hermosa which is very well known for the great waves and great for more advanced waves.

Tranquilidad Resort was bought in November of 2020 and has been growing since then, making it a great place for relaxation and fun adventures. Tranquilidad Resort is located between a beach of grayish sand and blue waters located in the Central Pacific area, and the Palo Seco estuary on its north shore is great for mangrove tours and to watch flora and fauna. It is surrounded by water in a secluded area where customers can enjoy privacy.

The mission of Tranquilidad Resort is to create a unique experience and share the beautiful nature that surrounds us. We want to support local people by offering job opportunities and reactivating local tourism with local guides and tours.
