Tsunami Inn – Beach Hotel in Puerto Armuelles

The Tsunami Inn is a small expat-owned hotel.

Tsunami Inn is located in the San Vicente neighborhood of Puerto Armuelles.

It is across a quiet dirt road from the beach.


This hotel is centered around its pool and central “hang out” gazebo (see photo). You can stay in one of its  6 colorful cabanas. They are small, but an adequate size.

The front cabins, pool and gazebo face the ocean.

Note: Some guests who have stayed here have told us that it appears the owners have a financial arrangement with 2 local real estate people. After you arrive, don’t be surprised if one of these 2 “realtors” shows up.  I advise taking your time.


You can play horseshoes here.  They have a regulation horseshoe pit set up right by the swimming pool. One of the owners, Scott, is a champion horseshoe player.  On most Sunday afternoons they have a horseshoe game for hotel guests and locals.
