In times past, there were two basic vacationer types: The pre-planning kind who reserved travel days, booked accommodations, and even researched activities months or years in advance; and the seat-of-the-pants type, who snagged a great deal on flights and left everything else (or thereabouts) until after landing. Today, our post-2020 world has produced a third type – a type that bridges the gap between the pre-planners and the seat-of-their-pantsers, often pulling each into its thrilling orbit: These are the last-minute vacationers, who embrace the greater flexibility, lower stress, and excellent deals afforded by last-minute plans. The question is – where will you go? Ask us, and we think Tamarindo and our Costa Rica private villa rentals are the perfect choice. Here's why:
