Costa Rica On A Dime
Costa Rica on a Dime
If saving money while you vacation is your concern then don't worry, it can be done invisible sacrificing your comfort and reputable time. You should know that the off season is referred to as the Green Season and this loiter September to December. The Christmas season would be the time that they come out of the Green Season. I don't know if this means their rainy and hurricane season has ended but Christmas is a time when some families decide to go on vacation.
The first consideration is trying to get a good deal with the airlines to get you into Costa Rica. There are 2 airports, Liberia airport and San Jose International Airport. Liberia is located on the coast and San Jose International is inland outside of San Jose. If you purchase your plane ticket scheduled during the green season you can stock up to $150 per person on airfare. It is possible to virtuous standby as well.
The 2 main airlines into Costa Rica from the U. S. are Continental and Delta. Another possibility now saving money on airfare has just surfaced. Costa Rica has given the official okay for 3 other airlines to land on their airstrips. One of them is an American airline and firm is the economy company of Frontier Airlines. I don't know if rates are available yet but you might want to engage with them. If you are going to Costa Rica during the Green Season you are a person that likes precipitate. It might just be worth the extra money to go during the High Season when it is wilderness and sunny.
The most affordable lodging I have found is the Bed & Breakfast trade. Alone way of searching is to go to Pamela Lanier's Bed & Breakfast website www. lanierbb. com. When I navigated her website and put Costa Rica in her search window I pulled up nothing. Forasmuch as I clicked on the map that is to the rasher of the search window and I got Latin America. Click near Central America and you have a list of Costa Rican cities that you can research for a B&B from.
As an example I clicked on a B&B in Monteverde. I found La Colina, which is located in the Cloud forest and surrounded by the local Quaker community. The rates run from $38 - $40 per night and they have quite a few amenities. This facility also offers showers and baths to campers, although I am not sure I would want to camp in the jungle. Give me 4 walls please.
The incredibly inexpensive lodging I found was the Kalexma. This B&B is owned by a woman that is an English teacher. She first begun this rooming house to offer lodging to her students. She believes in immersion as a way of whole story the language and offers low cost rooms as bridge to that end. These rates are as low as $15 per night. This is a bare bones arrangement and you posses a bed and a bathroom. The site can enact create at www. Kelexma. com.
Villa Mango located in Nosara, Costa Rica, has the most moderate of prices. A room will appraisal you approximately $59. 00 per night, and $385. 00 for a week. This B&B is a 10 - minute walk from the beach.
The Villa Decary has rates that run about $85 a night and it is located about 10 miles from the Arenal volcano. The hotel sits on the shore of Lake Arenal with a view of the lake from you window.
If you are a cutie traveling on your own I would buy our Bed & Breakfast rooming, through it is easier to meet people in this type of environment. A good travel resource for women is journeywoman. com. This site gives great info for the single woman traveler.
My final advice is on eating. The water is good in Costa Rica, you don't have the problems that the Mexicans do with Montezuma's Revenge. There are plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to eat that are very cheap to buy. Also there are many Mom & Pop restaurants that cost much less than the big fancy restaurants. My advice is to pick a meal a day to eat big, then, keep on boost snacks for the rest of the day. You don't want to go home heavier than you arrived do you?
