We fly into San Jose, arriving about 3 pm on Feb. 25, and plan to spend two nights to visit La Paz and Poas before heading down to Dominical. We are debating whether to stay closer to the airport in Alajuela or to stay out of town, closer to Poas.
We are looking at La Rosa de America in Alajuela, and could have the car delivered to us the first morning after arrival so we can get to Poas early, then leave from there the following day for Dominical. Any other suggestions for lodging around $100 per night that would be practical for our needs? I looked at Poas Volcano Lodge - looks lovely, but a little more than we wanted to spend.
