Costa Rica Hotels

The most common type of loding here is the cabina. The typical cabina, which caters to the budget crowd, is a very simple, fan-cooled room with a tile floor, blank walls, and a small, cold-water bath. Many mid-range locales also call themselves cabinas. These may have a similar set-up but be of a higher standard. All-inclusive resort lodges are also copious in the Osa, and there are certain remote areas, such as Carate, in which this is the only type of lodging available for logistical reasons. However, you can find resort lodges that are very well priced considering that they include three meals a day. Lodges are all pretty rustic in the sense that few have A/C or hot water. It can actually be easier to find these amenities in more urban cabina lodging, although the price shoots up significantly.
Lodgings are cheaper in low season, although this rule applies mainly to mid-range and high-end accommodations – those in the budget spectrum tend to keep the same prices year-round. Some high-end lodges and resorts price for three different seasons – the month of December, which is the most expensive, then high season and low season.
