Accommodation in Costa Rica
In Costa Rica you’ll stay in small-scale authentic accommodation that truly reflects the culture and nature of your surroundings. It could be a basic lodge in the village of an indigenous community, a Caribbean themed hotel on the east coast or traditional hacienda just outside a national park.
In Style accommodation – Category 4
Our In Style options will give you a little extra something during your stay. It could be more facilities, some extra comfort or a completely unique view of your surroundings. You might stay in a boutique eco-hotel on the Caribbean coast, a lodge overlooking a volcano or a comfy beach resort with a huge swimming pool.
Standard accommodation – Category 3
In this category you can expect a mid-range hotel or guest-house with bags of local character and private en-suite bathrooms. It could be a jungle lodge in the heart of Tortuguero, a cosy Hacienda or a hotel full of Caribbean charm.
Simple Accommodation - Category 2
In some parts of Costa Rica there just aren’t as many options, or accommodation isn’t as important as what you’ll experience when you step out of your front door. Our simple accommodation category offers you modest, yet comfortable accommodation with your own room and facilities. These hotels and guest houses generally have an authentic rustic atmosphere and/or are situated in a particularly good location.
Basic accommodation – Category 1
This category will offer you a completely unique experience. If you’re visiting the Bribri village for example you’ll stay in a cabana with a palm-leaf roof. You’ll be provided with a mattress on the wooden floor and a mosquito net. Showers are behind the fence alongside the stream and warm water is scarce in these types of accommodation.
