We are going to Costa Rica from December 4- 19. The plan is to go to the Caribbean (PV) side for a week and then the Santa Teresa/ Mal Pais the second week.
A couple of years ago we went to Phuket Thailand and I pre-booked hotels which i came to regret as the walk in price was much lower and it wasn't nearly as busy as we expected and had no problems finding hotels (same time of year).
So my question is..given the time of year we are traveling is it a good idea to pre-book hotels or will walk in bookings be best?
FYI- we are not super fancy travelers (like a clean bed and private toilet though!)
