This is a 16-room Hotel with dance hall, bar and restaurant. The hotel is located in Playa Azul a sleepy little beach community next to the town of Tarcoles a medium size Tico (Costa Rican) town on the central Pacific coast. Playa Azul is mostly a residential area with a few small Tico style Hotels/B&Bs.

This hotel is the largest in the area and considered the center of Playa Azul a very well-known tourist area close to the Tarcoles River (Crocodile Bridge) as seen in National Geographic, Carara National park, and an estuary internationally known for bird watching and crocodile tours. The hotel property is titled and has room for expansion. You can keep the bar/dance hall as is and build more rooms at the backend of the property.

The bar also includes a kitchen and a liquor license (a $60K value) with the sale. All hotel rooms have been fully remodeled including electrical hook-ups for A/Cs if needed in the future. The sale includes a bodega (300m2 storage unit) the same size as the bar/dance hall.

You can knock it down to build additional rooms or convert it into a store. The cinnamon sand beach is public and very quiet, about 100 meters (300 yards) from the hotel. With the Toll Highway from San Jose it’s less than an hour away from the international airport. The road into Playa Azul is an improved graded dirt road about 10 minutes from the main coast highway (Costanera).

Most of the growth right now is concentrated in the Jaco beach area (20 minutes south), a great resource to tap for rental client. My thought was to promote the hotel as an Eco-tour/bird watching destination resort providing tour packages to nature groups, crocodile tours, and birding clubs…very big in this area.

The dance hall would be perfect for seminars and a staging area for tours. I have a good friend who is an internationally known bird photographer who has a thriving “bird watching” business providing tours at Carrara National Park, only ten minutes from the hotel. Photographers, Birders and International Nature clubs would be perfect to network with. With active advertising, a comprehensive website, proper SEO, and liaison with tour groups throughout Costa Rica, this hotel can do well. The hotel is ready to go… fully turn-key.
