Costa Rica: heredia & santo domingo

Hi there,
I'm going to visit Costa Rica for the month of August - I have the option of doing a homestay in Heredia or Santo Domingo.

What are these towns like in general? Are they safe? Is one better to stay in than the other (Heredia would be a tiny bit more expensive)? Advice on precautions I should take/be aware of?

I'm female; I've traveled a bunch but this is my first time traveling alone so a little nervous, very curious to hear opinions on the locations! Thanks!
