Costa Tropical Accommodations (Hotels)
Hostales / Pensiones
“Hostal” and “Pension” are Spanish words for a category of lodging that tends to be cheaper than hotels. They normally provide a bar and/or restaurant/cafeteria where drinks and food are served to guests and locals alike. The Hostales and Pensiones are commonly family owned and run. In each you will usually have a private room but sometimes the bathrooms can be communal.
Some Hostales offer "en suite" rooms which means a room with a private bathroom and kitchenette. These rooms can be rented long term or short term. Those traveling for extended periods of time might find that these businesses will often offer great discounts to those staying longer. Always ask! You will be very surprised by how high the quality is for the price!
** Important - Hostales and Pensiones usually do not accept credit cards – cash only and the quality of accommodation can vary widely. Do your research!
There are three campground facilities in the area, these are a great option and probably your lowest cost option. Campgrounds are very popular for many Europeans, it combines low cost travel from the comfort of your own home (or in this case RV).
"Of, or pertaining to, or characteristic of the country, country life, or country people; rustic: rural tranquillity."

"A villa was originally an upper-class country house, though since its origins in Roman times the idea and function of a villa has evolved considerably." Today a villa is considered to be a detached house. Most villas in the area come with full amenities as well as a pool and garden. These are a great option for those with larger groups or those just wanting to live the high life for awhile.
"A room or suite of rooms designed as a residence and generally located in a building (or highrise) occupied by more than one household." There are many, many available apartments to rent in the area. These cost less than a villa but still offer privacy and a larger size. Most apartments are located right on the beach with great access to restaurants and other activities.
