I've been busy this week trying to plan out a vacation in August for us -- and have discovered some awesome sites in the process. Like Splendia, a Web site for luxury and character hotels. When I came to this site I assumed "expensive" - but I actually found some great hotels for really good prices in Costa Rica.
I mean look at how beautiful this Hotel near the beach in Jaco is - Hotel Villa Caletas. These hotel rooms are under $100 during August.
They have beautiful pictures of some small boutique hotels all over the world. So if you are looking for a different place to stay check Splendia out.
