    • 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!

      Hey,
      how do you get from Heredia to Corcovado? Is there a some kind of trip possible? Since im travelling alone i would not mind a booked tour for 4 days or something.
      Thank you very much. I would not want to miss Corcovado but its very hard to get there.

    • 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!

    • Canopy Tours from Barcelo Playa Tambor

      by rolyek Online Now Jul 19, 2008 at 10:03 AM

      Will be staying with family, wife + 2 children 10 & 11 at Barcelo Playa Tamboe Resort beginning July 26th for 5 days. Does anyone know of a good tour guide to set up a Canopy Tour. I have seen several mentions of a fellow named OCTVIO or OCTAVIO but I do not have an email address for him. Anyone have good experience with local tours.
