We are making our first trip to CR this Christmas season (from Philly). We have 3 teenage boys and can book 3 nights at the Hotel. There appears to be many hotel choices, but avalability is slim and prices higher for obvious reasons. Before we spend the $250/night, we wonder if this is a good location to spend a few days to see the MAntonio park, and perhaps do a snorkel and canopy tour. The rest of the week, we expect to go back inland towards Alajuela to stay in the Marriott CR Hotel.
Any comments from anyone who's stayed here or in the general area is appreciated.
