      Room in Nosara

      Nosara Apr 2, 2014 at 8:33 AM

      Hey All!

      I will be volunteering at a school in Nosara from September til mid November and am looking for a place to stay. I like having people around. A shared apartment or anything like that would be great. Any ideas on how to find one?

    • Wheelchair accessibility

      by lifecoach Online Now Jan 22, 2013 at 11:25 AM

      We're planning to visit Costa Rica with our daughter who uses a wheelchair to get around. I'm wondering if there is a good transportation company with wheelchair access also any suggestions on accommodation, there will be 5 of us.
      I'm also wanting to know if using a power wheelchair would be possible or would she have to use her manual one.
      One more thing :-), is there one area over another that would best accommodate someone in a wheelchair. Thank you

    • Are the Hot Springs safe?

      OK, maybe I'm being paranoid, but I read about leptospirosis being a problem in Costa Rica. Does anyone know if you can get it by swimming in the hot springs? Thanks!

      Affordable Accommodation?

      by dilydim Online Now Mar 30, 2008 at 2:22 PM

      We're going to spend a couple of days in the Arenal/Fortuna area and need an affordable place to stay. I would prefer a small hotel/B&B. Hostel would do as long as there are individual rooms as opposed to dorm style. Our max budget is40-50 per night for two people.
      Since we're not renting a car I would prefer somewhere closer to the site.

      La Fortuna Taxi Fares

      by waltinsocal Online Now Jan 24, 2008 at 1:27 PM

      This weekend begins my stay at the Arenal Lodge. I know it is a bit of a ways from La Fortuna. My question is this, does anyone have any recent experience with the cost of a taxi from the Arenal Lodge to La Fortuna? Also, does anyone know what the taxi fare is from La Fortuna Airport to La Fortuna itself? Thanks to all.

      Transportation in Costa Rica

      by monica71 Online Now Jan 18, 2008 at 7:53 AM

      Hello,
      We are planning a 7 days vacation to Costa Rica in March 2008. We would like to stay 1 day in San Jose to see the city and then move towards Fortuna, Arenal and Monteverde. We are trying to decide what transportation we should consider: renting a car (we do not speak Spanish and heard both, good and bad things about driving in Costa Rica) or taking a shuttle bus from San Jose to Arenal (I know Interbus and Fantasy Bus have daily shuttle buses).
      Any other tips that would enhance our vacation experience in Costa Rica are greatly appreciated!
      Thank you in advance for your help!
      Monica

      Getting to Arenal via Nature Air

      by waltinsocal Online Now Jul 10, 2007 at 2:42 PM

      I have posted a similar question in the San Jose forum but am not sure if that is the best place. In short, we are flying into the main airport (Santamaria/SJO) in San Jose, but Nature Air flies out of Tobias Bolanos Airport. Has anyone in this forum used Nature Air, and could anyone give my a good estimate of the amount of time it takes to get from Santamaria/SJO Airport to Tobias Bolanos Airport? Thanks to all!!
