Towns nearby to Casa Conde Del Mar ?

How near is the nearest town/village to the hotel Casa Conde del Mar. We are there for 5 nights in Aug 08 and are thinking it might be nice to get into a nearby town for dining, shopping, etc. Any within walking distance or shall I rent a car for a couple of days?

Please advise.

thanks

Renting a car is very advisable - They are not expensive the roads from Liberia airport to the hotel are all paved and there really is nothing within walking distance. Driving is actually fun we did alot of exploring and really enjoyed it. Some restaurants to try Ginger and the Beach Club. Ginger is a tapas restaurant with an oriental flair - amazing is the only word to describe it. Also if you drive into Playa Del Coco - around 15 min - there are lots of other restaurants and shops for souveniers.

Gingers - fine dining - bocas from a world class chef .....Martinis, Grey Goose Martinis are Anne's specialty. Reservations are recommended on weekends. 5 minute cab ride from the Grand Papagayo. (Playa Hermosa)

Villa Del Sueno - fine dining at it's best. Great food & wine Sylvia & Claude as your hosts. At the south end of the beach in Playa Hermosa The owners are professional musicians and have "special appearances" from other musicians from North America .

Walking distance from the Grand Papagayo. Just down the street 5 minutes. A new French restaurant called "Bambu"

Lobster:

El Velero Hotel in Playa Hermosa but you have to call first to make sure they have them in stock. 672-0036 Barbeques Wed & Saturday nights.

Also in Playa Coco - Papagayo Seafood and again call first.

El Velero - Barbeques on Wed & Saturday nights (on the beach) Great lobster but you have to reserve before all the locals do.......inside tip which will cost me! Good variety of dishes from seafood to steak. One of the best restaurants for a good old "American Breakfast". Great bar to meet the local North American's and a very colorful owner from Hamilton, Ontario. " Mike" the owner is basically the entertainment!

Pescado Loco - Good local Costa Rican food – economical. Ask for Mario (behind El Velero) In the evenings it is a gathering place for locals for drinks. Open until the last person leaves..............I know as I can hear the music until the last person leaves!

La Finesterra - take a 5 min. cab ride. Views to die for and wonderful hosts and food. Great for sunsets and they offer daily specials. Seafood is excellent.

Villa Del Sueno - fine dining at it's best. Great food & wine Sylvia & Claude as your hosts. At the south end of the beach. The owners are professional musicians and have "special appearances" from other musicians from North America . You will not want to leave.

Gingers - fine dining - bocas from a world class chef .....Martinis, one, two, three, four....stop. Grey Goose Martinis are Anne's specialty. Spoil yourself and don’t miss dining here! Reservations are recommended on weekends. 5 minute walk from Condovac

Aquasport Restaurant - on the beach 1/2 way down. (I live next door) Good selection of seafood and local dishes. They also have a gift shop, deli, kayak rentals, small sail boat rentals, snorkeling tours.
