Do you have a rough price range and ideas of where to stay? I know the area you want but are you looking for in or out of town? Road Advisor has selected nice places mainly in the higher end of the price range for this coast.

Depends on if you're looking for a guest house with kitchen facilities or more of a resort atmosphere. I really like Le Cameleon, but its the most expensive resort in the area. Totem Hotel is a nice property, close to everything. Costa del Papito is great for families, larger rooms, and Banana Azul is also really lovely, but a little further outside of the main town area. You'd need to bike or drive/cab to get out to restaurants and stuff but the are beachfront, whereas most of the others are across the street from the beach

Cab ride is $4 to town from Banana Azul. Same price for Totem or La Costa de Papito. La Cameleon would be about $6-7 cab ride as it is further south.

I agree, taxi fares can't be the obstacle for a choice. Le Cameleon is only $6 like our place Geckoes Lodge.

If you are going to have transportation, I love the Punta Uva area of the Caribe

Sur. Korrigan lodge is excellent in that area, if you ar going to rely on taxis and bikes, Costa de Papito is centrally located to most destinations.

From Costa de Papito, Cariblue, Totem all in Cocles with nice beach, you can walk to PV, nice walk, less than 2 miles each direction, ride bikes, or take the bus which goes twice daily roundtrip. Cost is 1/3 the taxi fares.
