Consider Nicaragua as an Alternative to CR - A Trip Report

Thanks laurie-ann for your reply. I contacted MR for Christmas. They are booked. We go on a trip together every year, and MR sounds like something totally different than we have done. If the 10 of us can't get there, my husband and I certainly will. My husband goes to CR on business a lot which means we may be able to combine the trips sometime. Thanks, Owa

I was so excited to find this post. My fiance and I have been considering MR for our honeymoon this December, and you've provided such helpful info.

He is ready to book, but I have been a little bit worried about the no AC factor. Was it very hot in the bungalows? Also, you said there isn't room service because of animals and bugs. Was it very buggy? Usually, we are very good at roughing it, and I def. appreciate not having phones, but since this is our honeymoon, I have these concerns.

You all may want to consider Piedras Y Olas - another beautiful place not far from Morgans Rock. Piedra y Olas is closer to the town of San Juan del Sur- and is not all inclusive - but it is a small luxury, "boutique" hotel with a few casitas. The prices are more reasonable than MR (I think) - but it depends on the type of unit you choose. Piedras y Olas is also written about in all the magazines and we have been there twice (a family with kids). It is not really a good place for very young children- but probably more for those over 8 or 9 years old. I also suggest taking Spanish lessons in the town and trying some in-town restaurant- all very good - & very fun!! Easter week and Christmas are supposedly the most croweded times- as Nicaraguans have always headed to San Juan for holidays. Also, we have been twice in the summer and it is beautiful and it never really rained very much- maybe for an hour or two.
We have also been to Costa Rica a few times- and I might still suggest Costa Rica if you've never been to Central America- unless you are generally well traveled and up for a new adventure.
