Where to stay


Planning a trip in dec and need some advice. We are a family of 3 teenage girl of 16. Wanted an area close to parks etc but an area with nice restaurants and bars (not nightclubs) to be able to sit at night and watch the world go by. Anyone have any good suggestion? Was looking at Taramindo but after reading reviews am worried about walking around the area. Thanks everyone

There are many different national parks in CR, so you cannot stay in one place located "close to parks".

How long is your trip and which international airport(s) are you using?

In a week, for ex., you can probably stay in 2 areas, unless you are set on staying in one place or have very short time.

You may want to read more about weather/availability in December - https:/… , suggested ready-made itineraries for 1-2 wks: https:/… and Destinations Summary Guide: https:/… .
