Re:First Trip to Costa Help.... - 2008/06/21 20:10Hey Watty, Ive been to Costa Rica twice now and love it, If you fly in late n cant get to the beach straight away try Arilapa hostel, really good, cheap rooms and they do a pretty good breakfast. I always stay there on my first n last nights, Arnoldo will pick you all up from the airport free n help you with transport out to the beaches, really good spot,I will be staying there again. You can call Arnoldo on CEL: +506 371-5674 or at home on +506 443-6941, he speaks perfect english and his wife Ileana teaches Spanish which could be helpfull. Check them out at www.arilapa.com
Alot of great surf spots around Tamarindo, be sure to take a boat trip to witch's rock and ollies point, Top class uncrowded waves, well worth the money.
