If you have Marriot points to blow don't be afraid of the Costa Rica Marriot in San Jose- very plush

Great Idea, we do have Marriot Points.

Xandari is also a very nice place to stay near San Jose. Great restaurant with beautiful view of the city.

If you have Marriott points, have you looked at The Marriott Los Suenos? We stayed there in Feb of '04 and was Fantastic!

Great itinerary! Enjoy!!!!

This is great itinerary - adventure, white water rafting, local flight, rain forest, beach and sun.
You got it right.
Hotel Grano de Oro is fine and it is located on a good area of the city.

Remember to take some mosquito repellent.

Oops, forgot to mention I am a native Costarican and was the manager for a few years of a local tour company in San Jose before moving to something else.
I know Costa Rica and I can tell you that you will not be disappointed with your itinerary.
Thx, AA
