Repeat or try something new ?
Save

To repeat or try something different - just stayed out on the papagayo peninsula at Andaz and a few days in

la fortuna at Nayara- it was a picture perfect -we are going back w the intent to repeat the trip - but start at la fortuna first then head back to the beach area to be closer to Liberia- just

Tossing it out there if we should include a different area / resort or not . The trip was so amazing and both resorts were great we are nervous to change it up ... thoughts ... not sure is weather is a play - mid April is our expected return.

Your profile says, "Always like to get a feel of the local flavor and find places off the beaten path.". Am wondering if you have considered staying outside of the resorts geared toward foreign tourists.

We have traveled to CR before this last trip and stayed in a non resort type setting on the East side - but w all the travel restrictions we felt more comfortable w a resort to assist in getting testing done before going back to USA. Hoping restrictions will lift but it doesn’t seem so- but pls share any ideas for other future travel.

You can book your own appointments in any location offering onward travel Covid tests, PCR or rapid (Orange lines), using direct contacts for each facility on the list from the official site of the CR Tourism Insitutute, ICT - https://www.ict.go.cr/es/documentos-institucionales/material-de-apoyo-coronavirus/pruebas-covid-para-usa/1898-laboratories-authorized-in-costa-rica-for-test-sars-cov-2/file.html . Just have your passport info handy, and the name/address and phone # of the hotel you will be at the time of the test. You don't need to rely on (more expensive) tests offered on the property of some accommodations, and use it as a defining criterion for where to stay. But of course, it is up to you.
