Advice for lazy *budget* beach vacation with 1 year old

Jump to last reply

Hello! I'd love to hear if anyone has any vacation rentals or private bungalow-type hotels they'd recommend in Costa Rica (or the Caribbean?) that would be suitable for a 1 year old. We'll be traveling in the Fall for 1 week and are looking for a rental ideally with it's own full kitchen, as we're planning to cook most of our own meals (with a few early dinners out), and will need to do laundry (cloth diapers). Ideally we'd love to be on the beach OR somewhere with a view and private pool. Budget is a factor - ideally $100 - $200/night. The kiddo is great in the car and we've driven CR roads before so we know what we're in for. We've been to Arenal and Manuel Antonio so we'd rather see somewhere new. While ziplining and kayaking and fishing and shopping are all great - we're just looking for somewhere we can spend a lazy week in the sun (so somewhere off the beaten path is A-ok, as long as it's near a grocery store).

We welcome any ideas - preferably somewhere we can get to with a direct or one-layover flight from Denver. Thanks in advance!
