How close is the above hotel to town ? I need to buy some souvenirs.
MArriot Costa Rica is in San Antonio de Belenn...about 20 minutes by car from San Jose with moving traffick ...
It is a good size souvenir market close to the new Hard Rock Cafe next to Wyndham and Double Tree Cariari Hotel...just minutes away from Marriot Costa Rica.
Is there a village that we can walk to for souvenirs?
No, the JW Marriott is in Guanacaste, at Hacienda Pinilla. It's not really near any towns of any size -- it's kind of a complex with a life of its own. The closest town of any size would be Tamarindo - you would need vehicle transportation to get there.
Yes, I'm sure the JW has transportation to Tamarindo. Plenty of shopping there. It's about 20 minutes away. Go shopping in the morning, then stay for lunch, there are tons of options on the main road where the shopping is.
