Location, Location, Location!!!
We had never been to CR and I wanted "live large" our first week with our butts parked at the beach & a pool. I was so "wowed" by the condo pictures, location & what the property offered. To be honest the picture's don't do it justice! This condo is well stocked for your everyday needs.
We survived without a car the entire time. Granted we do like to walk everywhere & bike is also an option. Small grocery store, most restaurants etc. are all 5-7min walk from the property. A fresh fruit stand is also a 1 min walk and his prices were very good. Even the walk to Playa Flamingo is only 20(ish) min and it's mostly along the beach!
I only suggest you bring a flashlight for the walk home at night on the beach, or streets as they can be dark. (We felt so safe in the area though.)
Gail's prompt response, friendly attitude & help for idea's to make our stay in the Portreo area just that much better was so appreciated! I tend to over ask questions on area, things to do, see, need etc. & she was so patient & helpful (Thank you!)
Our only wish was that we had booked sooner & for longer at the condo property. When there I did look at other places in the area that were for rent & I can't say I felt they would be better options for our future return for a comparable price.
