Looking for some tips on Costa Rica. I am planning on going for 2 weeks and would like to see San Jose, Arenal and maybe Tamarindo beach. Any recommendations on where to stay or getting around would be appreciated.
You will have a great time in Costa Rica. In San Jose downtown is the best location if you want to walk around the city. To get to Arenal and Tamarindo or TamaGringo as a lot of people call it.
Ask a local travel agent in San Jose for a bus to Arenal or a tour of Arenal, then a bus from Arenal to Tamarindo. You will find accommodation in all these locations no problem. Just depends on
your price range and if you want a swimming pool or not. If you are flying into San Jose at night it would be a good idea to pre-book your hotel online.
