Hey everyone. I am taking my wife on a 5 day (7 including travel days) trip to Costa Rica March 6th - March 12th. We are flying FSD-DFW-FLL airport change to MIA-SJO and then the return flight is better LIR-DFW-FSD. I see several Marriotts in San Jose, but outside that, I'm not sure. I figure we can stay in San Jose at Marriott properties the first 3 nights since we want to spend a few days seeing Manuel Antonio, Volcan Poas National Park, & La Paz Waterfall. I figure we can do all these while staying in San Jose. There isn't much else for chain hotels in the rest of the country and we would also like to spend a day white water rafting the Pacuare River (which we could probably stay in SJ for) but also we would like to spend time in Monteverde, and also see the Arenal Hanging Bridges which are too far to waste time driving. Plus, we have to fly back from LIR. Anyone have any ideas or suggested destinations? We have the following hotel points: SPG: 70,000 but I am using these in Maui Club Carlson: 170,000 Marriott: 142,375 If I have to pay for a hotel I will, but I will mention that my wife and I do not care about luxery as we do not spend much time in the hotel and we would rather save money but still feel safe.. Thanks everyone!
