If you want resorts , you know the list, but if you want to get the feel of Costa Rica and do pictures, you need to do a bit of everything, places like Puerto Viejo Limon, Tortuguero are really nice for pictures, Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, Poas volcano, beaches like Junquillal, a bit north like around La Cruz , el Jobo.

I've been to Cala Luna. I don't know if they reopened since there were a change of owners I think. The place was nice. Been there three times in years past. And in a row! For all-inclusive we went twice to Paradissus (Now Westin) Playa Conchal. Great all around for what you're going to spend for breakfast, lunch, dinner and any other things. Yes, it's great to go to the areas in tamarindo and support local businesses but your pockets count in the end. I know I've thought of that on most occasions there. Anyway, I'm headed to the Riu Palace in a few days and see what's happening there. I've read good and bad with Conchal's resort and after my first time there I went for a second the year after. So that was anything but bad in my book. I was headed there for a third but figure why not go try another place and enjoy. Look, you're in a beautiful country (my country :) ), enjoy and like I always like to say the motto: "Live for the moment''.
