First time to San Jose Costa Rica - (Dec 3-8) trying to decide whether to book a site nearer to town and do day travels out and about, or to book out at the Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort - Opinions? Thanks ^_^
Out of town for sure to see the natural beauty of the country.
Staying close to the city will waste a huge amount of your time if you are interested in exploring the natural wonders of the place.
Traffic can be very bad along its limited main roads and be prepared for a lot of bumpy rides. The roads are not maintained like in the USA.
You will love the people, food, and natural beauty.
I second this. Driving to get to the coast to do anything from San Jose would be a time waster. The country is beautiful. I’m not much of a fan of San Jose.
Much appreciated - ^_^
I recently was in Costa Rica and stayed at JW Guanacaste and Hotel Punta Islita. Its a little bit from San Jose, but I would say if you like adventure go with Hotel Punta Islita (lots of included activities and I believe they went a 5,000 point per night reduction). If you want fancy pants, then do JW. While at Punta Islita, I met another couple that stayed at the Mangroove and they had nothing but positive things to stay. Again, they are all a little bit of a trek from San Jose (closer to Liberia), but well worth it! Have fun!
