Costa Rica in late January - Accomodation

We are planning a trip to Costa Rica in late January. The Rough guide (1996) mentions the importance of reserving accomodation well in advance in the peak season. Is this still the case or can one get away with planning where to go and where to stay upon arrival in San Jose? Any great ideas for small, interesting places to stay outside of the main touristed areas?
Thanks!!

I am also planning a trip to Costa Rica in Mid-January and I am also in the travel industry. I would not advise waiting until your arrival in San Jose to make hotel reservations. Not only will you encounter sold out situations but cars will also be sold out. I have been working on my trip for several weeks and I have already had problems finding space. I can help with hotel suggestions if you have an idea of your itinerary.

We, too, are planning a trip to Costa Rica only in February. We have been told by a few people to book ahead. I will contact the person that responded to you already re booking information, but I also have some travel agencies in Costa Rica to e-mail. Here are their e-mail addresses for you: Vesa Nature Tours [email protected], Horizontes Nature [email protected] and [email protected]. (If you find out any more about people to book through please let me know. I'm travelling with kids and don't want to wing it. Good luck
