Despite a hair-raising shuttle drive through the foggy mountain terrain, and some minor problems with the hot water supply in our cabin (which, though promptly repaired, quit working twice during our 10 day stay), we were very happy with our stay at Caribe Town. It's in a peaceful & beautiful garden/jungle setting, just a five minute walk from Playa Cocles, and not much further to some very nice restaurants and attractions (don't miss the 'Chocolate Experience' tour). Jessica and Marc go out of their way to make everything go smoothly and pleasantly, from the almost all-you-can-eat breakfast, keeping the rooms clean, to giving practical advice, arranging tours, reservations, taxis, etc, all done with a genuine smile, and goodhearted intentions. Better hosts would be hard to find.
Having nothing to do with the resort, the one disappointment with our trip to the Caribbean coast was the garbage issue. While it is picked up once per week, until that time, it's just piled by the side of the road every day, which means one can't walk anywhere without passing mounds of smelly trash and litter spread all over the place, once the animals have torn it apart. Having said that, the beaches were relatively clean. Thankfully, this did not appear to be a problem in San Jose. However, not yet having visited the pacific coast, I don't know if it's any better or worse there. Otherwise, Costa Rica is a paradise of flora, fauna, friendliness and all around fun. We would return in a heartbeat.
