My husband and I are planning our first trip to Costa Rica in late Oct for 3 weeks. I've been following the forums on TripAdvisor for months. At this point, I'm overwhelmed so if any can help - please do!
We've booked one night at a B&B upon arrival and were thinking of seeing the usual sites for about 3-6 days (Arenal, Cloud Forest, etc.) but then we just want to rent a guest house in the Samara area (I've read the beaches there are some of the calmest and we are not good swimmers).
If possible we'd actually like to rent a house that is 'eco-friendly', solar, etc. but we also need comfort (good beds, CLEAN, etc.).
Can anyone suggest a place to stay in Samara? Or anywhere close by? We would like to be within walking distance of a small town with several restaurants and grocery stores. THANK YOU!
