These prices are worse than Hawaii

What are these people thinking with these rates? We have been going there for 10 years and this rates on Trip Advisor are tripled what we pay . I guess we will start going back to Hawaii. People, I bet your homes are not rented, please adjust these prices so we can all come back to Paradise again. To everyone , try Playa Del Coco maybe you want get ripped off there.

As for Playas del Coco, there are rentals there of all prices so I don't understand the comment about being "ripped off." Definitely we need more details in order to address this.

Need more details on what you are talking about! But in Costa Rica you can find places to stay, vacation rentals (there was one for $250 pm in Montezuma... but need to buy your own pans) restaurants for all budgets just need to shop around!

Costa Rica is not cheap, but certainly cheaper than Hawaii. Shop around, there are good bargains for lodging and food.

Like prior posters i am not sure what locations or dates you claim have rates higher than your expectations but but for the last few months I have been booking extremely nice 2 bedroom/2 bathroom ocean view privately owned condominiums for what I consider to be very reasonable and competitive prices.

If you are seeking reservations at the end of the year prices are much higher than at other times. At all other times of the year I have been able to find very reasonable rates in Playas del Coco. Look around. Trip advisor is not the only entity with banner ads.

I have a buddy up in Coco, he tells me Condos, 2 BR/2BA brand new are going as cheap as $400 a month.... Not to shabby in my book.

By all means negociate! There are a lot of high prices listed at places but with the economy the way it has been most people are willing to drop prices. And if they don't they just keep looking at their empty properties.

Don't know about Coco beach, but today I had a pepperoni pizza and two smoothies at the Los Suenos marina for $14. Not bad!!!
