Cheap accom in Playa Hermosa for a month stay in Nov..?

I'm traveling to Costa Rica end of Oct and wish to stay for a month.

Is it better value to rent an apartment or stay at a hotel for the duration? I'm a keen surfer and looking to explore this beautiful coast but on a budget. please help? :)

Your best bet for cheap accommodation for a month is to arrange something once you are there. I would first rent a car and do some exploring, especially of other beach towns that specialize in surfing such as Playa Negra. You can then look around for inexpensive lodging in a cabina or even a room in someone's home. After you have settled, you can return your car. ( This should only take a few days. )

Also - if you do a search on Google for surfing Costa Rica, you would find a wealth of information about beach towns with great surfing as well as places to stay. One place to look at in Hermosa is Hotel Cabinas Ecotel. They are inexpensive and have rooms and apartments. Otherwise, Playa Hermosa is not generally a place with lots of cheap accommodations.

Stay a few days in a hotel...and I know for sure somebody will have that special place you are looking for...and then you just have to do what you like in life...SURF!
