Our family is planning on first trip to CR in Nov - parents and yound 20ish adults.We have narrowed down two areas - where we will rent a house. My husband has been researching these areas and hear from a local that Jaco is not very desirable. We were warned not to leave our belongings on the back of chairs or on the towels or chairs at the beach because they will be stolen. House must be locked and alarmed at all times. Be careful with wallet in your back pockets??Not safe for use taxi alone or group of two?? Now he does not want to consider this area. Is this true or is this the case for all of CR? Is the Flamingo area a better and safer area ? Please gibe your suggestions and advise.
