every trip we take brandon and i have a debate because although i enjoy roughing it and making our money go far, i also relish in staying at one or two nice places along the way. this is the nice place i want to stay at, but somehow i don't think i will be able to convince him to go for it. the standard room, which is where i would like to stay, will make him choke when i share the cost per night. maybe i will stow away a little cash here and there for this splurge. the bathroom looks magical. (note: the previous sentence is not one i ever thought i would write, but it makes taking a bath sound pretty dang exciting.)
any of you blog-readers out there who have been to costa rica, please share your advice in our comments section about places to stay. that is the most difficult thing to make decisions about. we know what kinds of things we want to do, we just want to make sure we spend our money well when it comes to bedding down.
