I single mindedly visited the Costa Rica Pacific Coast for fishing. I booked Sunni Daze as my base from which to fish in the sea, fish in the river, trek in the Carara National Park, Zip Line in Los Suenos and eat myself silly on mangoes, watermelon, pineapples et al. The room had a double bed plus two bunk beds,...

The first room we were shown had a strong odor of mold which wasn't acceptable, the second a little bit, but this ceased with turning on the AC. Room was fine with AC, TV, fridge, best shower during our travel in Costa Rica (really hot and powerful), the owner was...

We stayed in Sunni Daze for one night in January 2013. I can recommend Tarcoles to anyone who'd like to experience real Costa Rican life, not shabby Americanized nightlife like in nearby Jaco. Sunni Daze has comfortable rooms, nice little swimming pool and especially a great manager in Randall, a typical Southern gentleman with a lot to say about the...

Sunni Daze offers clean rooms with AC, nice shower and convenient to Carara NP...perfect. The Manager, Randall, is friendly and quite helpful and attentive. Can walk to places to eat/drink within a few meters. You'll enjoy the pool after the hikes. In regards to the local mangrove trips, please do not use the commercialized tours- those knuckleheads feed the crocs....
