Costa Rica Hotels

Accommodations in Costa Rica vary as much as the landscapes. Whatever part of the country you plan on exploring, Costa Rica hotels have an abundance of choices for the weary traveler. Volcano hot spring resorts, rain forest eco-lodges, city hostels, and dry forest pension hotels are just some of the different accommodations that are set in the multitude of environments you are likely to encounter on your Costa Rica tours.

Some of the best hotels in Costa Rica will not cost you that much money, since many of the mid-range hotels are rather clean and comfortable and should more than satisfy your basic lodging needs.

If you"re weary of the rigors of touring and bumpy tour buses, you might want to escape to a more luxurious haven at the end of a long day. You can find larger hotel chains like the Hotel Marriott Costa Rica, Comfort Real Hotel Costa Rica, Hotel Radisson Costa Rica, Hotel Palmira Costa Rica, and the Arenal Paraiso Hotel Costa Rica in the major cities and towns such as the capitol of San Jose and near major attractions such as Arenal Volcano.

The city Peurto Quepos, for example has a hotel called the Karahe that gets rave reviews from guests, who stay here on subsequent trips. While this hotel is only $40 a night, it is often preferred over the nearby Hotel Si Como No, whose rooms average three times the Karahe"s. In the city of Liberia in the northern part of the country, the Four Seasons resort is one of ultimate splurges for Hotels in Costa Rica at almost $300 a night, but you can also find a clean and well-kept room at the Best Western El Sitio Hotel and Casino for about $20 a night. In Tamarindo beach, on the Pacific, the easygoing way of life is reflected in the very reasonable prices of what very well may be some of the most clean and affordable Costa Rica Hotels. A mere couple miles away from Quepos lies Manuel Antonio and its excellent Arenas Del Mar Resort.
