Because of it's popularity, there are many Costa Rica resorts to choose from so finding the right one could seem a bit overwhelming. The good news is it's really not as bad as you may think.

The first thing to into consideration is your budget. You can get anything from a simple room to condos to a vacation home rental. All will have different price ranges, amenities and room sizes.

Next would be figuring out your basic needs. Maybe you want a basic room so you can use your money on more adventure tours, restaurants and hitting the clubs.
