Property Description

Room2Board is just steps away from the beach and walking distance to the center of the vibrant surf town of Jaco. It was designed to have the social atmosphere and affordability of a traditional hostel and surf school along with the amenities and style of a boutique hotel.

Whether you come to meet new friends or learn to surf, R2B provides the optimal atmosphere and necessary tools to start any adventure off right! Come catch a flick in the movie room, swim in the pool, and grab a cerveza on our rooftop and watch the sunset over the ocean from a rocking chair or hammock. Yoga classes are offered twice daily during the week and once on Saturday and Sunday.

We cater to the solo traveler as well as large groups. We have surf and SUP packages to meet all of your needs. Choose between en-suite private rooms, shared rooms or dorm style rooms. Dine family style with new friends at our restaurant or feel free to cook in our communal kitchen.

We offer free wi-fi in our common areas, laundry service, luggage and surfboard storage, tour office, surf board rentals and lessons, cinema room, fooseball tables, community kitchen, and a great pura vida vibe.

My husband and I LOVED staying at R2B. The private room was great, very clean with a nice sized bathroom. The private balcony was great, we overlooked a little meadow and everyday we saw wildlife. Some very large iguanas, scarlet macaws and other colourful birds were daily visitors. The staff were awesome, very helpful with tips, transportation help and generally anything you might need. The drinks were well priced, and they have 2 daily happy hours. It is super close to the beach too!
