We've decided to stay in Santa Teresa for most of our Costa Rica vacation at the end of Nov/early Dec. We chose Santa Teresa for the beaches and because we were told to stay further north since we will be there at the end of rainy season. We are a couple in our mid-40s and 50s and are looking for accommodations on the beach or very close to the beach with great ocean views. We would like to find a very nice hotel, resort or rental/b&b. Pranamar looks really nice to us but I am not sure since there are so many choices. Also for help with our itinerary, do you recommend 2 days in the cloud forest at El Silencio or Peace Lodge or should we spend those two nights are Arenal? Not sure which to go to.
