Dominical proper is home to the majority of the area’s budget accommodations, while midrange and top-end places are popping up on the outskirts of town. The rates given here are for high season, but low-season rates could be 30% to 40% lower. Note that there are additional accommodations options in the nearby mountaintop village of Escaleras. Although most of the year Dominical has an unflappably laid-back vibe, the place goes bananas over the holidays, when Ticos from around the country flock to the coast. Travelers on the thinnest of shoestrings can probably get away with camping on the beach, but the local police are likely to move you along after a few days.
