Top tips for finding the perfect Costa Rica hotel

  • San José is by far the largest and most populous city in Costa Rica and also the main business centre of this smallish Central American country between Nicaragua and Panama. It makes for a great place to base yourself due to its location pretty much dead-centre in the country.
  • To experience the authentic Afro-Caribbean facets of Costa Rica, you can stay in the smaller city of Puerto Limón (or simply Limón in local parlance). Here you'll encounter the traditional Costa Rican language, a mixture of Spanish and Limonese Creole. For your stay, you could book a room at the picturesque Hotel Playa Bonita.
  • In the coastal regions of Costa Rica, you'll find its most popular holiday resorts. The town of Jacó is a good example. It's hugely popular with sun-worshippers, surfers and everyone who loves a beach holiday. Hotel Villa Caletas is the ideal place to stay to take advantage of everything on offer.
  • The small beach town of Dominical is a backpacker's paradise, with plenty of cheap accommodation, a casual vibe and an abundance of open-air restaurants that offer good value for money. It's pretty rustic, so expect to awaken to the calls of howler monkeys and toucans. Casa del Toucan is an inexpensive place to stay in the town.
  • If aquatic sports and activities are your preference, head for the town of Tamarindo. It's the main surfing spot in Costa Rica with the biggest waves and also offers diving and snorkelling, horse riding and ziplining. Book a room at the Hotel Villa Amarilla for a stay right on the beachfront.
  • Book at least 73 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Costa Rica accommodation.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Costa Rica for 3 days.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Costa Rica if you stay on a Saturday. The opposite is true for, Wednesday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in Costa Rica found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was $20, while the most expensive was $709.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Costa Rica, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in Costa Rica in October and August.
