Christmas Vacation in Costa Rica
How to pick the perfect vacation rental for Christmas and New Years in Costa Rica
Recently I have been bombarded by people emailing and calling looking for a beachfront home or vacation rental for Christmas and the New Year. The two weeks of Christmas and the New Year are the two busiest weeks here in Costa Rica. Sometimes it can be very difficult to secure a vacation rental for these two peak weeks. The following tips can be very helpful in planning your next family vacation.
The earlier you can plan your Christmas holiday the better. Vacation rentals and beach front homes get reserved very early on here in Costa Rica. The beach towns on the West Coast are popular for foreigners looking to explore Costa Rica and also for Costa Ricans. The influx of tourists makes it difficult to find a quality beach rental so the earlier you can commit to a rental, the better.
Set Your Budget
Private homes and hotels always raise their rates around the holidays. All of the beachfront rentals and ocean view homes always get booked so be prepared to pay a premium for these peak weeks of Christmas and the New Year.
Book Flights in Advance
Airlines always seem to raise their rates a little around the holidays so be sure to factor in the cost of travel as you are looking for a vacation rental. Costa Rica is a great vacation destination so there are lots of flights into both San Jose and Liberia but it is always best to book in advance.
At this moment we still have a few vacation rentals left for the Christmas week and New Years. There are some great beachfront options and some jungle and ocean view homes as well. If you fall in love with one of our vacation rentals and it is not available, think about reserving it for the upcoming year. After all, it’s never too early to plan a dream vacation in Costa Rica.
