with temperature -9C and landed to 19C fantastic.
One morning with rain but even then it still felt warm.
Lying on beach at 10am with temperature 22C which rose to 24C every day.
Expect a little winter cloud sometime of the day but you won't be disappointed with the rest of the day.
Stayed at Sandos Hotels Papagayo Arena in Playa Blanca
. Third visit to Playa Blanca
but first to this hotel.
is a picturesque town with the fantastic Papagayo beaches very nearby.
Papagayo Arena is the very last building before you get to national park so nearest the beaches. You can walk to the first one in 5 mins and futhest away one in 35 mins.
Hotel was great; spotlessy clean, lots of space to sunbath/swim/have a beer.
We stayed all inclusive and the food was also great. Entertainment was a good level for 'in hotel' shows; with the time of year the hotel was pretty quiet so the disco was empty but in high season I would imagine it would be busy.
Nearest bar/restuarants at Marina Rubicon, about a 20 min walk away. Centre of Playa Blanca
would be a very long walk however hotel runs a minibus service into town during the day.
We chose the hotel to be near the beaches and hired a car, so distance to town didn't matter.
We will be back and recommend a holiday here to anyone.
