October 31st, 2021 Public parking next to Jardin Tamarindo

Between the beach, the restaurant El Chiringuito, LA kitchen and the food truck area Jardin Tamarindo is a wide public parking.
We arrived there by night. Locals said no issue to stay there, you might have to pay during the day, we left at 9 am and had seen no one asking for money. Locals said worth to give 300-400 colones if it happens.
Not that quiet because of the night restaurants/clubs around so you hear some loud people at bar closure time, but felt safe.
Just next to the beach which is great in the morning.
We had a drink at LA kitchen, very friendly owner who let us use the toilets during the night and gave us quite some advice.
Wifi available from his restaurant or from jardin tamarindo

October 26th, 2021 Arenal 1968

The staff didn't allow us to stay there with our campervan.

October 25th, 2021 Riverside

Very quiet place, road is a bit bumpy to get there and there are 2 tiny rivers to cross. Still fine without a 4WD. Looked like a nice place to swim, we met some locals but no one at night or in the morning. Very close to Rincón de la Vieja so very practical!

October 24th, 2021 Santa Rosa National Park

Closed due to pandemia. The park's entrance is also restricted to a very small area. Not really worth it at this time.

October 24th, 2021 Balbo’s Liberia

Very nice and friendly owner. Gave us good recommandation about the region.
Clean bathroom, cosy corner with couches, sink, games.
We paid 5000 colones for 2 people with our camper as we didn't need electricity for the van.
Calm place, can only recommend!

October 23rd, 2021 Las Brisas

Gotta wait for low tide if you want to park behind their restaurant, but we stayed in the parking in front. Very friendly staff! 1500 colones to take a shower, 500 to use the toilet.
excellent food at the restaurant but pretty expensive.
The sunset is amazing there!

October 20th, 2021 Monteverde coffee center

It wasn't possible to spend the night on their parking lot. they said they refused several people already but gave us some alternatives. amazing coffee place though.
not a camping place anymore.

October 20th, 2021 Restaurante Turin - Camping & Jardines

Super nice place suitable for all types of camping. We stayed there because it's quite hard to find a good free spot in Monteverde. Great food at the restaurant, very welcoming guys, you can pay extra for a hot shower if needed, WiFi, toilets open all night, very calm and beautiful garden.

October 19th, 2021 Dominical beach parking Pazific

We ate at Coco restaurant and they then let us stay the night on their parking for free. Indeed, at night it was a bit hard to find the right spot without being under a coconut tree. Felt safe, no facilities though after leaving the restaurant (but very good food).

October 18th, 2021 Hostel Casa Chirripo

José is quite nice and let us stay with our van in front the hostel. Wifi, power, shower, kitchen, well everything you need. it's on the road so not very intimate though, but very quiet. a lot of birds in the morning.
It was 9000 colones for 2 people if using the kitchen (which we did because it was quite cold and humid) and less if you don't need it. He gives good advice and free coffee.

October 17th, 2021 Paradero Nahomi

Amazing place because super close to a beautiful little creek, guards are really nice too and happy to welcome people. Give access to toilets (close at 9 pm) and shower (behind their building, open all the time). Quiet at night, a lot of people during the day. Very close thanks to the coast guard's and police offices nearby.
Not really suitable for tents though, ok for camper.
