Although La Paloma has rooms equipped for wheelchair users, the infrastructure of Drake Bay itself is not well suited for the disabled.
There are no ramps or lifts at the airport or docks to facilitate wheelchair transfers, and La Paloma is a hilly property where access is difficult.
During the four days I was there I did have one guy try to sell me drugs outside the club but the travel guides my girlfriends and I went out with shoo'd him away.
I wasn't in San Jose long enough to get a good read. Its really just a small town on the ocean with one main drag and all streets branch from the main street.
The wine is complimentary, though other alcoholic beverages are not included.
Panoramic views, ocean breezes, rustic luxury and fine dining await you here, and it won’t cost you a king’s ransom either.
But the alternatives enhance the adventure: a boat ride from Sierpe or a flight on a small plane into the local airstrip.
You won’t find an ATM in the tiny town here, but you’ll bask in the isolation of a lush jungle wilderness.
There was a cool restraunt at one of the highest points in the town that used to be a monestary. There are lots of hotels to pick from, both hi and lo priced. But Jaco is not a luxury resort town like Puerta Vallarta or Rio.
A nice small one story hotel right on the ocean is the Cocal Hotel and Casino. Its a bit rough around the edges and yes, there are hookers and drug dealers but just say no,,,, or possible yes ha ha ....
