Only 3 weeks to go and its Easter Week vacation again. Easter is known to be the hottest week in Costa Rica. So you don't want to stay in the Central Valley though for sure the valley will be nice, quiet and empty during the week. You will need to book now as time will run out on you if you wait too long.
Some of you don't know that most of our Beach affiliates in the American European Real Estate Network also offer beach houses and beach apartments for rent by the week, which we call Costa Rica vacation rentals. This is a lot cheaper than going to a hotel. We have beach properties for rent in the Caribbean, around Dominical and Flamingo Beach. Make sure you take your beers and hard liquor with you because during Thursday and Friday, you won't be able to buy anything anywhere.
The biggest advantage is that all these Costa Rica vacation rentals have a kitchen so it is your choice to cook only breakfast and go out for lunch and dinner or you take all your stuff from San Jose and cook every meal if you want to.
Most of the vacation rentals in Costa Rica offer a swimming pool and have wireless internet, so you don't have to miss out on my emails while you're on vacation :-)
Our group can offer you right now 36 different options, starting at $210/week vacation rental in Puerto Viejo de Limon and as expensive as a $19,500 Luxury rental in Esparza with 10 bedrooms and a gourmet chef.
If you like the beautiful white sand beaches of the Caribbean, where you can swim in those blue waters and do some snorkeling to see the coral and tropical fish, eat the Caribbean rice and beans and listen to the rasta music, our affiliate member for the South Caribbean area is Emmanuelle. The Toucan, the Howler monkeys, the sloths and many birds like to accompany you in these beautiful hideaways just a few minutes walk from the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica; Playa Cocles, Playa Chiquita and Playa Punta Uva.
Check here for what Emmanuelle can offer you, starting at $210/week.
The North Pacific Beaches of Flamigo and Portero also offer very nice options for a vacation rental, even though those offered are a little more "luxury" and start at $990/week.
