We are booked on a Costa Rica tour in a couple of weeks and were due to spend the first two nights in San Jose (at the Palma Real Hotel) which we were looking forward to/ But we have just been advised our holiday company have relocated us to Santa Ana (Holiday Inn Express San Jose Forum). A town/suburb which to us looks much smaller and far less interesting.
We won't have a lot of free time as we arrive reasonably late the first night, have trips the second day and leave early for Arenal the third so anything we do get to see would need to be pretty much on the doorstep or just around the corner for which San Jose seemed to fit the bill... from a perspective of wanting to experience as much of the country as possible in our short time there and thinking that the architecture of the capital city would compliment the volcano, cloud forest and beach stay of the rest of the tour.
Can I ask your valuable advice as to whether you think we might enjoy Santa Ana more (or at all?) or would I be better to stand my ground and insist they give us the location we paid for?Edited: 22 April 2017, 03:39
