    The hotel sucks to be honest. The shower is either scalding or Icey. There is wifi in the restaurant downstairs. Don't leave food/drinks in room bc of ants. I've stayed here twice tho bc I love montezuma

    If I could keep this place a personal secret, I would. However, that wouldn't be fair to the charming Braman family who make this quiet retreat a home away home. Tucked into one of the most beautiful (and climatically comfortable) rainforests in the world, the "Blue Monkey" is a hidden oasis with luxurious comforts. I could spend an entire trip ...

    Hotel Banana Azul is a great little resort located on a black sand beach just north of the popular surfer/backpacker town of Puerto Viejo. The hotel is a laid back place with lush grounds, a new pool, and a large cool-water Jacuzzi. There's a good range of reasonably priced rooms--from basic garden level to a two-bedroom apartment--that feature rich local ...

    The hotel on the whole is good. The rooms are large and clean, and the staff is very friendly. The hotel has a small pool, jacuzzi, and a gym. The gym has some pretty ancient equipment, but it gets the job done. The hotel restaurant is pretty decent. They don't have a lot of variety, but is a nice option ...

    2 reviews

    One of the best hostels in Tamarindo, that also acts as a surf school and camp. Cool spot for surfing junkies to hang out and rent out boards, but a bit too hyped up for what it offers as a hostel. The private rooms have a private bathroom, as well as a kitchen, but the hostel itself is quite small ...

    Arenal Backpacker's Resort is a great spot to stay in La Fortuna. It's on the main road and easily walking distance from bars, restaurants, and grocery stores. The hostel has a small restaurant and bar, a great pool with lounge chairs and hammocks, and nice clean rooms...$14 for a dorm bed (4-6 beds per room) or $28 each person for ...

    Head to Mal Pais or Santa Teresa to get away from the herds of tourists in other areas and enjoy rustic beaches with perfect-surfing waves. If you go and you're on a budget or in you're twenties/thirties, without question, stay at Tranquilo Backpackers. They have shared rooms with a bed ($17) or private 2 person rooms ($39) and more. There's ...

    The Hotel Del Ray is a single man's paradise. Beautiful women, a "sports" bar with lots of big screen television sets, good food, clean rooms, and a casino to boot.

    Some hotels strive to make you feel like you are somewhere you've been before, or even back home. But that kind of ruins the whole travel thing...roaming South America is suddenly put on hold when you check into a plush Best Western or Hyatt and sink into the doldrums of room service meals. The best hotels are the ones which ...

    This is probably the nicest surf resort in Tamarindo. The entire resort is geared towards surfing and they hold surf camps for guests for an entire week. The owner, Joe, and his family are totally cool and they have some of the best instructors in town. The only drawback is that it is much pricier than other places in town. ...

    Buena Vista is the premier place to zipline in Costa Rica. The road to the lodge is rugged and it's hard to believe that paradise can be at the end of the road! The lodge is basic, comfortabe and clean and sits in a lovely setting overlooking magestic mountains and a sublime rainforest. There is horseback riding, awesome ziplining, thermal ...

    Hard to imagine a better view of Pacific Ocean. Nice cottages amongst the trees. Temperature is always perfect, so never need to close windows (actually I don't think it has glass windows). Zero, repeat, zero mosquitos. Not sure how that is possible. Birds, crickets, and howler monkeys serenade you to sleep. Has personality and character of the quirky owners. No ...

    Pension was a neat place to stay. It was owned by fellow Austinites if I remember correctly. The common areas were simply and rustic and really fostered hostel community. In the evenings, many of the guests came out to the common areas to drink wine and socialize. It definitely made staying there more fun. The rooms themselves were very homey ...
