    • Coconut Grove

      Dominical Apr 8, 2014 at 5:13 PM

      Has anyone stayed at this hotel? It seems quite nice, and a good option (ie. meaning it's well reviewwed, around the $100 range and close to the beach).

      We're trying to decide between Coconut Grove and Villas Rio Mar, which seems like another great option.

      Thanks!

    • is a car necessary?

      Dominical Apr 6, 2014 at 8:53 PM

      Hello, VTers! We have decided that we're doing 4 nights and 5 days in the Dominical / Quepos / Manuel Antonio area.

      We're trying to do it without a car, but I'm not sure if it would make things very inconvenient for us, and it's just not worth it do that area without a car.

      We arrive in Quepos via shuttle on the morning of Day 1, and we plan to go straight to Dominical. Would you recommend taking a public bus, or taxi down to Dominical from Quepos, if we don't have a car?

      Then we were planning on spending the day in Dominical and Uvita on Days 1 and 2. For Days 3 and 4, we were planning on moving up to Quepos and MA, and then we fly out to San Jose on Day 5.

      Would you recommend staying in Quepos / MA for the entire 4 nights, and doing day trips down to Dominical and Uvita? Or is a good idea to spend 2 nights in Dominical, and then 2 nights in Quepos? Do you recommend a car to do this? Or do you think that public transport is adequate? The bus from Quepos to Dominical seems to take 2 hours.

      Even in Dominical, it seems it's advisable that we have a car. We were hoping to find accommodations (around $100 per night) in Dominical, but I can't seem to find a good place right in town. The good places seem to be either over $150, or pretty shabby. The places that are reasonable and well rated seem to require a car, as they're just outside of Dominical (ex. Villas Rios Mar).

      What are your thoughts in trying to do this area without a car?

      Many thanks in advance!

    • Osa Peninsula advice - Where to go, lodging and adventure tours?

      Osa Peninsula advice - Where to go, lodging and adventure tours?

      Hi all, We are heading to CR end of May and considering Osa as a place to visit for about 4 -5 days. We are looking for adventurous activities, beautiful beaches, an authentic/rustic experience and moderate prices. My questions to you are:
      1 - Which part of Osa (jimenez, drake bay, etc) best accomplishes this? (adventurous activities, beautiful beaches, an authentic/rustic experience and moderate prices)
      2 - Is there any suggested lodging that is moderately priced and lends a clean but nature-oriented experience?
      3 - What are some of the best activities for two highly curious, eco-loving and adventurous people?

      Thanks for offering your help!!

      I've heard that there are sicknesses transmitted by mosquitos, and that DEET should be applied continuously -- Is that true, and if so, any other precautions need to be taken? What about poisionous insects?
