My family of four (2 teens) will be traveling to Costa Rica in August. Since we won't be renting a car, we are not sure where to stay since my husband doesn't like to be trapped at a resort eating overpriced meals or spending $40 on taxis to la fortuna to do so.. We want to go to the Arenal Volcano to do all the activities (ziplining, etc.) and were thinking about the Springs Resort, Tabaccon resort, or Arenal Kioro, but they all seem far from the city of La Fortuna. We don't mind taking a taxi, but if we do, we prefer a resort in between and not too far from the city center, especially for dining options. Any suggestions for nice places to stay that maybe a bit closer to la fortuna?
