My grandson and I just spent a fabulous two weeks in CR. So sad to go home today.
Monte Verde 3 nights at Rainbow Valley Lodge was perfect. Lovely views, close to town and amazing staff. Did 3 private tours that were amazing. Saw many birds and animals.Private tour is a must.
Arsenal 2 nights at Hotel Bijagua was perfect. Great location with lovely garden. Both days were amazingly clear to full view the volcano. Proyecto Basis is a must.
Safari float and stop at pumas centre on way to the pacific was excellent.
Playa Buena vista - Hotel Flying Crocodile for 3 nights was just not enough. My favorite spot. Hotel is excellent. Beach was amazing. I loved the solitude. Rarely a sole on the beach. Howlers everywhere.
Next over to Samara for 5 nights. 2 at entre does aguas. Lovely spot. Beautiful gardens. Little paradise of the main road. Then 3 nights at the Treehouse Samara. Amazing spot right on the beach. Treehouse room not available but the poolside was just fine. Had a nice crowd there that made it perfect. Lo Q hay next door had amazing food. My grandson surfed, we did an amazing ATV trip around the area and went on dolphin tour. All was amazing.
At Vida tropical B and B in Alajuala. This is my new spot for airport travel. What a lovely little place in a great area. We spent hours in the park watching kid feed pigeons and squirrels. My grandson didn't want to leave as some of the local kids were showing him how to catch a pigeon.
My best time yet in CR. Very happy with my choices. Met wonderful people, had great meals, saw much wildlife. As always Costa Rica does not dissapoint.
