Sounds like Samara or Nosara would be perfect for you. Both small but with restaurants and some tours....Do a little research and see what is best for you...so many choices for budget to moderate hotels/rentals. Without a little more info on what you are looking for 'specifically' it's hard to suggest.

We are budget to moderate on our accommodations budget. We have stayed in hostels that were great, casitas or small B&Bs or family run inns. We do not like hotels or resorts. Thanks for all your replies.

I also recommend Samara as well as nearby Carrillo. Samara is "laid back" but with enough stores and restaurants to be self-sufficient. You can look here for more information -

www.nicoyapeninsula.com and www.samarabeach.com

The next town over, Playa Carrillo, is much smaller than Samara but has a picture postcard perfect beach and an interesting little wildlife rehabilitation center.

Agree with Hattie 100%. Samara is a good choice. Check out the Treehouses - http://www.samaratreehouse.com/Home.html my favorite place over that way.

Cheers
