Costa Rica Vacation Rental FAQs

The frequency of cleaning for your Costa Rica vacation rental depends on the duration of your stay and your specific requests. Generally, each rental property is thoroughly cleaned between guest visits to ensure a comfortable and hygienic experience. If you require additional cleaning services during your stay, you may request them; however, extra charges will apply. For guests staying in the rental for 7 days or more, a complimentary mid-week cleaning service is provided to maintain a fresh and tidy environment throughout your vacation.

The amenities provided in each Costa Rica vacation rental property depend on the specific property you choose to book, and these amenities will be clearly outlined on the individual property page.

The cost of traveling in Costa Rica can vary depending on the preferences and budget of each visitor, as well as the season. 

On average, visitors may spend about 5-10% less during the low season (May-November), while they can expect a 5-10% increase in prices during the high season (December-April). During peak travel times such as Christmas, Easter, and New Year’s, prices can surge by up to 50%. 

While it is possible to experience the country on a budget by opting for budget accommodations, local cuisine, and affordable transportation options, luxurious resorts, fine dining restaurants, and high-end experiences are available for those willing to splurge. 

Generally, prices in Costa Rica can be higher than in other Central American countries due to its well-developed tourism infrastructure and a strong economy. However, with careful planning and smart choices, visitors can find a balance between affordability and indulgence, making it possible to enjoy the natural beauty and rich culture of Costa Rica without breaking the bank.
