Costa Rica has so many fabulous hotels at all price points that providing even more choices with Costa Rica rentals may seem a bit overwhelming at first. Costa Rica rentals are a great alternative to a standard hotel room; and provide a way into the Costa Rican culture and into out of the way places that many seasoned travellers crave. If you are the kind of person who likes to travel but only if you can have a ‘home away from home’, then Costa Rica rentals are for you.
Costa Rica rentals include such enticing lodging possibilities as luxury Costa Rica condos, villas and private retreats tucked away in jungle areas and near national parks, beach bungalows and cabins that let you fall asleep to the sound of the ocean, rain forest hideaways visited by monkeys and exotic birds, eco-lodges near hiking and canopy tours, lakeside and mountain cabins that put you in view of major volcanoes, and posh apartments and houses in all the major urban areas near all the best hot spots, dining, and fun.
Costa Rica rentals can arranged for a stay of several days, several weeks, or even longer. Most Costa Rica rentals include all the amenities a traveller would expect from a hotel but with a more homelike atmosphere, along with cooking facilities and other options a hotel room lacks. Linens and cooking and eating utensils are usually included in Costa Rica rental packages, and other services can often be arranged if needed.
To find Costa Rica rentals you can go through a travel agency, browse the web, or call your favorite Costa Rica hotel. Many hotels, both corporate and privately-owned, also offer separate cabins, condos, houses, and villas for rent in desirable areas near beaches and national landmarks.
Private individuals also rent out their properties during peak season as a way of generating income. You can easily find privately owned rentals through special agencies set up to broker such properties, although you may want to get a recommendation from your travel agent or someone else you trust. Your choices are limited only by your imagination and your pocketbook. Costa Rica rentals can be found at just about every price point, from budget cabins all the way up to the most luxurious villas.
If you are planning a family vacation, a Costa Rica rental property might well be the most economical way to enjoy the landscape and tour the country. You can set up base in a cabin on the ocean or in any of a wide variety of Costa Rica condo rentals in San Juan, and explore the national parks and other sites from there. A Costa Rica rental feels like home. You can cook your own meals or go out whenever you please.
Don’t let a distaste for hotel living stop you from travelling and experiencing Costa Rica firsthand. You’ll be surprised at how easy and affordable it is to have an unforgettable Costa Rica vacation in your very own secluded cabin or Costa Rica condo.
