Need Help/itinerary/San Isidro/Hotel del Sur

Anyone~ I need some help. I am trying to put together a Costa Rica trip and I am having trouble. We are doing 18 days, Feb 12-March 1. I have reserved the first and last night at Orquideas Inn, Mid trip Feb 19,20,21 for Montana De Fuego.

Here's the problem. We're on a budget so we are trying to use timeshare exchanges for the rest. I have been on a waiting list since May and nothing has come up for the Costa Rica resorts we specified. (mind you we are not resort people, usually we try and go as cheaply as possible, and I always figured you are seeing the same things a mega buck travelers, no offense to anyone meant. We just have to use up the exchange)

So to cut to the Hotel del Sur came up and I can hold it only until tonight. It is located in San Isidro. The normal rates are $60 a night. I would book it for Feb 22-28 which would leave me only 6 days to have to deal with.
Is there anything to do in this area? I don't see it mentioned much. I have a very slim chance that El Octocal may open up (near the top by Nicagragua~ terrible spelling I know)Should I wait? I'm concerned about getting into anywhere by then if I give it til Jan.

Please somebody help me ~what should I do? ~and where would you spend the first 6 days if you were to do San Isidro? One last question. I am so sorry to go on, would you rent a car and what areas would I need one? Much thanks
