My fiance & I will be in Costa Rica for our honeymoon in Sept. We plan to spend the first 2 nights at Arenal, the next 3 nights in Monteverde and the 4 remaining nights in Tamarindo. We already have hotels in mind for the other 2 places (although am open to suggestions!), but am desperately looking for a hotel in Tamarindo. We want a place right on the beach, but is not overloaded with families with kids nor emptying our pocketbook. Since this is our first time here, we will be relying on the hotel staff to point/help us choose & book tours/adventures. We liked places like Casa Cook and Hotel Arco Iris. Are these good places to stay? Any other places worth looking into? THANKS!!!
