Shooting Star Studio in Pavones Costa Rica

for our



Pavones has a wide range of options for accommodations. But high rise hotels and 5 star accommodations are not found here. Integrated into a mixture of local Costa Rican natives, fisherman and farmers, foreign residents, surfers, families and travelers, this quiet surf town's most popular business is "Cabinas."

Small and family run these are little motel style hostels, bed and breakfasts and lodges offering varieties of options for visitors. Accommodations comfort and amenities range widely from box rooms with a bed and a fan only, to A/C, hot water, TV, kitchenette, and pool. The varying prices reflect that. Lately house rentals are also an option. Contacting owners or property managers may not be as efficient as you are accustomed to. But since hard lines have recently arrived to Pavones be persistent by email, website and phone and you should be able to make your reservations in advance. That being said, Pavones is a place you can simply arrive at without reservations, and usually find a place to stay.
