Most all of the resorts in CR seem to be on the Pacific. Are there any resorts that lie on the Caribbean?
Let's hope it stays that way.
AMEN, rocrawler, AMEN!!!
I also wish that all the resorts on the west coast closed down and the people that went to them returned to places like Cancun and the islands in the Caribbean, which have already been ruined for a long time. IMHO, resorts are not what CR is all about, or at least it shouldn't be. Unfortunately, that will never happen. Its hard to close the barn door after the fact.
Jed, if resorts are your thing I suggest you just go to the Carribean (there are already plenty to choose from) and leave CR unspoiled.
On the Caribbean side you will find plenty of wonderful places to stay, but they are on the smaller, more intimate or boutique style. Some may offer individual bungalows, some may just be 15 rooms, etc. The location to the beach will vary as well as chances for swimming pool. However, some of the best food, people, scenery are in and around Puerto Viejo and part of it is because it's still less built up and touristy, so on that note I agree with the above posters I hope it stays that way!
griegogringo - I guess I consider those hotels more of "rustic luxury" than I do "resort", so I guess that term needs to be better defined by the OP. When I think of resort, I think of Club Med or sprawling Marriotts.
