Staying at Villas Sol alone 4/18-4/25/12 advise? ne1 else? (2 Replies)
I am beginning to wonder if booking tours will be a problem since I am traveling alone... I really liked Tico Tours but quite a few of the tours listed said 2+ people :-( I really dont want to take those huge crowded buses the hotel sets u up with. I want the personal exp. and a company that will take pics for me and care about a "small" group having a good time.... Any advise? Anyone staying at Villas Sol those dates or in the area?

We are staying there before you, but we did not book tours through them. I used Pure Vida! Eh? To book all of our tours and have been very happy. Nikki and her husband run it and have contacts throughout CR. I have not seen anything on their site that requires 2 or more bookings. Plus I like the fact that you still pay for the tours directly with the tour company you use, not the hotel or a 3rd party. I have heard of people getting ripped off...

Tico-Tours: anyone have experience with them? (1 Replies)
We're thinking of signing up for a birding tour with a company called Tico Tours. They specialize in small group birding tours in Costa Rica. Has anyone had any experiences with them? Would you recommend them? The tour sounds good, but it would be nice to hear from folks who have first hand experience with the tour.

Playa Hermosa trip report (5 Replies)
We just got back today from eight days in Playa Hermosa. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The vacation was just what we needed - we were escaping the cold in New York. We got in last Saturday evening, flying in to Liberia. We learned later that this is not the best time to get in as only one person was working on immigration and several hundred people were trying to get through. Eventually they brought on more staff and we got out in about 90 minutes. We rented a villa at Las...More
