Well, here it is Monday morning in Costa Rica. I am still in the city. This is Easter week and more than 1 million people from the central valley will be headed to Costa Rica’s beautiful beaches. I won’t be one of them. After planning to go to Jaco, Dominical, Playa Hermosa, and Playa Conchal it looks like we will stay home. Because of work and school schedules we had to wait to make reservations. Everyone has favorites hotels to stay at. Trying to make beach reservations a week before just doesn’t work for Semana Santa. Take a look online at hotels in Jaco beach today. See what is available. Those are the hotels you probably would never stay at. Travelling to the beach with three kids we need a room for five people, definitely a pool, nice to have breakfast included, and a hotel room with walls thicker than a sheet of paper. Right now we have friends waiting for us in Jaco and Dominical. Problem is, their hotel is full and our next best choice doesn’t cut it. We still might try to do an overnight somewhere new but time is running out. Next year I will make reservations early.
