Finding a Hotel in Costa Rica
Keep in mind that hotel rates are almost always negotiable. Especially when traveling off-season, there are bargains to be had even when the hotel already offers a discounted rate. Of course, the best deals can be hand when standing at the reception desk if you don't mind travling on the fly. We highly recommend this when going to Costa Rica off-season. The odds of finding a sold-out hotel are virtually non-existent and in many cases, hotels are way less than 50% occupancy and it's not unusual to find them at 20% or less.
We've suggested a number of hotels under "Places to See", but we also highly recommend Trip Advisor which is the single greatest online resource for hotel recommendations and reviews.
