Hi, has anyone out there been to Costa Rica? I am going on the 28th of September flying in to San Jose and am looking for any handy tips that I can use whilst I am there.Am flying with Martin air has anyone flown on them??
I flew in on Spirit Airlines, bought a ticket on their website and it was $99 to San Jose from Atlanta. Most cabbies will charge you about $15 to $20 to get to your hotel but once in town, it's really cheap to get around, and you can walk many places. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call Mike Forbes at Mikes Guest House in Escazu - also a great and cheap place to stay. Tell him "Christian" said that if you called, you can ask any question and get safe advice. His number in San Jose (Escazu) is 011-506-289-6087 from the states. Don't hesitate to call him if you need to ask for advice, he's definitely trustworthy and this is a very solid piece of advice!Big Mikes Guest House Escazu (San Jose) Costa Rica
