Best place to stay in Costa Rica for a single woman

Hi everyone

Thinking about going to CR for my birthday and it will be my first time and I am most likely travelling alone.

Where should I stay? I am on a bit of a budget. Not looking for a wild vacation away, but more of a laid-back, relaxing vacation that is much needed.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Thanks for your replies, guys! I was actually looking at the Banana Azul hotel in Puerto Viejo. Normally when I travel with friends, I like to party it up and get my hands a little dirty. However, right now, I need more of a break from a bad situation I am in and want something more laid-back and quiet.

Thanks again!

I think you have a good plan. PV and your hotel choice would be a wonderful vacation for someone traveling alone.
