Cahuita Recommendation ?Can anyone recommend any Nice Guesthouses in Cahuita?
Budget would be up to $50 a night. and we will be there mid august (in case that matters)(i think it might, since i saw a nice bungalow (Ache) and people said the cabins were boiling hot inside.
I am looking for something clean and with ambiance and it is hard to tell from pictures.
I liked Cabinas Jenny from the pictures but then read bad reviews....and i liked PIscina Natural .
Something quiet and romantic (not a Hostel where lots of People will sit around drinking at night), since I will travel with my Partner who i have not seen in 6months.
Also...we only have 8 night in costa rica and are forced to spend 2 near the airport, since we have either early or late flights.
So do you think 2 nights monteverde, 2 nights arenal and 2 nights cahuita would be an ok itinerary? with maybe one activity in each place?
Any input would be great.thank you !

1The best value on the entire coast, if not the country, is the open air thatched roof and private manicured grounds of the Alby Lodge. All beach areas are hot in CR, and most of this coast the lodging is rustic, and does not have AC, TV, phone or other creature comforts, adding to the charm.
If not check Trip Advisor.
I would skip Monteverde, and consider more time on Caribe coast, even south of Pt Viejo, or Tortuguero. But it depends on your interest. You could spend all 8 days on the caribe coast...

2skip monteverde and just go arenal and cahuita. way too much traveling for 6 days! look here for travel times and distances - http://www.yourtravelmap.com
keep it to those two destinations and you will have a relaxing and enjoyable vacation.
basically - it is usually very hot in cahuita. however, it will depend on how much rain they get or how cloudy the day is or how windy. someone who goes there in, say, april will have a different experience from someone who goes there in august. most places will have a good fan system - ceiling fans or a combination of ceiling fans and floor fans which will work just fine. keep in mind that there is around 12 hours of daylight year round, so you have 12 hours of cooling time at night. wherever you go on the caribbean coast, it will be hot in the middle of the day so just plan for that.
Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
