My husband and I will be arriving in San Jose on the night of Thurs. Feb. 14 and will overnight in San Jose, if we are renting car, or if next destination is not too far we will get driver to take us that evening. We then have the following 2 nights (Feb 15 & 16) on or own untill we pick up our "kids" (22 & 24) at SJO. We then will be spending 10 days with them, mostly on the Osa peninsula followed by 6 days ourselves on the Caribe side.
So the question is where to stay for those 2-3 nights not too far from San Jose that we can just chill and enjoy the scenery? Looking for ideas under $150.00/night (less is better) with a pool, good/charming atmosphere and decent food. We enjoy driving in new places but if we could save by not renting a car for this part of the trip even better!
Thanks in advance for the suggestions.
