Adventure Inn owner Eric Robinson has founded Adventure Hotels of Costa Rica, twenty-two eco-minded three and four star hotels strategically located throughout Costa Rica. The non-profit ‘hotels working with hotels’ association is the first of its type ever in Costa Rica, as Eric saw an opportunity to exploit a marketing niche.
Erics visited and screened every member hotel for quality and ‘eco-friendliness’, and that there are several excellent properties in the association. Prices for the hotels vary tend to be of good value, all falling within the $40 to $80 range depending on the season, and number of guests and room type.
As an added incentive to stay at member hotels, guests will receive a 10% discount across the board if they mention they were referred at the time of booking by the association. Each hotel has exclusivity in their particular area and promotes all the other member hotels by recommending them to departing guests.
You can visit the new association website adventurehotelsofcostarica.com which is still under construction as hotel owners continue to upload their information. They have made a beautiful and very useful Costa Rican road map. On one side is the map of Costa Rica pin-pointing by number the individual hotels, with a description of each numbered hotel along the side. On the other side is a useful street map of San Jose. There is a link to their website and e-mail address to ask questions and make a reservation.
Member hotels will be proudly displaying an attractive association wall plaque by their reception area.
According to Eric, “We have hotels from every corner of Costa Rica, three in the Osa Peninsula / Golfo Dulce area, and from there, several right up the entire Pacific coast practically to Nicaragua, two on the southern Caribbean, Tortuguero is covered, Arenal, Monteverde, Turrialba, central San Jose and even the airport. We have cloud forest resorts, beach hotels, hotels with scenic views, rainforest B&B’s, volcano lodging, dolphin and whale accommodations, hotels right in a national park, plus exciting city and convenient airport hotels, something different for every day of your vacation!”
