I am going on a nature tour beginning Jan 11, 2014. I made incorrect flight and will be getting to San Jose Santamaria airport on Jan 8. I have 3 days on my own, not a bad idea but I am a novice, older traveler never been outside North America. The tour is a once in a lifetime trip and costly. My budget is VERY limited at this point and changing flights will cost over $400 so staying in CR is my best choice. Meeting group at Wyndham San Jose - Herradura the 11th. Would like to see some of San Jose on these days. I am trying to find a safe, inexpensive spot to bunk down for the 3 days I will be on my own. Please suggest safe, inexpensive ideas for hotel/hostel/couchsurfing. Thank you all very much.
