Wow, I'm surprised to see not only Orquideas on the list but others that I'm at least very familiar with by name, such as La Mansion Inn Arenal, Adventure Inn etc. Not exactly the best time to buy or sell anyway. Too bad I don't have an extra 3 million laying about.

I would guess (and this is just a guess) that you could walk in and ask to buy just about any hotel and get a price immediately. Same with most bars.

I've heard so many people talk about Don't Stop the Carnival as a tropical hotel owner's bible, but I really took it as a cautionary tale.

Oh my gosh did you see this description of one of the hotels: There where the guest will be able to coexist with the monkeys, toucans, sluggish and exotic birds that on a daily basis arrive at the terraces. Sluggish! I'm thinking they meant sloths. Isn't that the funniest?

Hi Solo,
If you still have issues, call Katia:
Katia Quiros P, Arenal, Costa Rica, AnywhereCostaRica.com, Toll Free Phone: 1-888-456-3212

We are SJO-Arenal-Monteverde-Drake Bay in about a week. We are handling the ground transport but we booked our hotels and domestic air through Katia. She is very knowledgable, quite helpful and a pleasure to speak with.

Good Luck!

Hey dirtlander -
I used AnywhereCostaRica for most of my hotels and Katia was wonderful. I was able to keep all my reservations for the new dates. The only thing up in the air right now is some of my transportation - sent Interbus a reservation email 3 days ago and haven't heard back yet. 29 days and counting!!! I can't wait!

Hey Solo,
We're trying the "chickens and guava on the roof" buses. I found a great bus schedule on

We are going to C.R. in Feb., I still needed hotels for a few days, $ 50-100 range. I tried AnywhereCostaRica yesterday, I wasn't happy with their list of hotels. Got the Fodor's C.R. book, emailed the hotel I wanted, got the reservation. The first time we traveled to C.R., 10 years ago, we knew nothing about the country and picked ideas, hotels from the guide books.
