Costa Rica in Spring - Guanacaste Region

Hello! I am planning a trip back to Costa Rica; went there in 2004 for a wedding and absolutely loved it. Stayed at Hotel Sugar Beach in Tamarindo. Would like to return to the Guanacaste region, but would like a hotel somewhat located to restaurants if possible. Hotel Sugar Beach was lovely, but (at the time) it was pretty secluded and a significant distance from other locales. Not a bad thing, but I just want to ensure we have decent dining options, since most hotels aren't all-inclusive. My top priority is a great beach and spacious rooms.

I think you will find that Guanacaste is a bit more built up now than when you visited last. I don't have specific hotel suggestions for you, but as far as location I'd suggest Tamarindo or if you want to try something new, there are tons of nice hotels on the beach with food options nearby in the Playas del Coco area. Let me know if you need more tips! I run a Costa Rica travel blog and I'm happy to help. I'll leave you a link to the Destination page so you can check out some suggestions for different spots. https://www.costaricavibes.com/destinations/

I don't know if you have your heart set on that area, but we really like Manuel Antonio; Tulemar Bungalows is great, has their own beach, and there are several good open air restaurants in walking distance. The area is lush and has tons of wildlife; we saw monkeys and sloths right on the property. The beach inside the national park is gorgeous.

Capitan Suizo is a small hotel at the far end of the beach at Tamarindo but a very easy walk into the town and its restaurants.
