Croc’s Hotel and Casino – Costa Rica

Costa Rica is officially the world’s ‘happiest country’. It fuels itself entirely on renewable energy and has one of the highest literacy rates in Central America. All this and no army, a good health system, and a great climate.

Croc’s Casino Resort is a brand new venture that brings a little Las Vegas style razzmatazz to the tiny beach resort of Jaco. The resort is a blend of condominiums and hotel, with a swimming pool, restaurants, and casino serving all comers.

The casino has all the usual games, including blackjack, roulette, money-wheel, and even craps. It’s the most modern casino you will find outside of the capital city of San Jose.

The resort has three restaurants, catering to all tastes, as well as several oceanfront bars and a five-star swimming pool. Wary gamblers can head for the Carara Spa and Wellness centre, where professionals will tend to your sunburn and insect bites.

Costa Rica is famous for its wildlife and Croc’s has the eponymous reptiles on site. Don’t celebrate too much or you could end up like Captain Hook.

If you are lucky enough to find yourself heading to Costa Rica for a dream vacation, you now know there is a casino ready and willing to show you a good time. Jaco is a lot of fun. Go visit.
