So we have finally decided on Santa Teresa for our college graduation trip (3 or 4 young women) thanks to a post in the Costa Rica forum and we are so excited! With as much as I have scoured the internet for an appropriate hotel, I have just further confused myself. Different sites give varying information, so I thought I would ask people "in the know." We will be staying 7-8 nights in May 2014. We do not want a giant resort or all inclusive resort. We love the small beach town feel. We are looking for a safe, beachfront property, with air conditioning that is easy walking distance to restaurants, bars, etc. Our budget is not huge, but we will pay a little extra for the right accommodations (between $100-$150 total per night is ideal). Also, what is a good estimation of daily spending money needed for food/alcohol/light shopping? Thanks so much! Any help is appreciated.
