The Nicoya Peninsula (Malpais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma) is a wonderful area of Costa Rica with paradisiac beaches, this will make you say: this is Costa Rica. However this is not so much the case when it comes to food and accommodations since the area is full of small boutique hotels and restaurants owned and managed by foreigners. Even if the places are gorgeous and well appointed, there are not so different from hotels and restaurants found in the Western world. If you want to experience the true Pura Vida lifestyle, stay at Frank´s Place hotel, one of the very few hotels owned and managed by a tico family. During week-ends, the hotel is often full of ticos who come to the beach for the week-end. The garden and pool are very nice area to relax, the restaurant is located near the pool under an amazing and typical rancho. You will hear people speaking Spanish and get a better insights into the Pura Vida culture which is so difficult to reach. The receptionists are from the Peninsula and will be able to direct you to local spots to surf, swim or see wildlife. report a problem
