Judging by a name like Adventure Inn Hotel, one might expect a place packed with activities and perhaps lacking elsewhere. But this cool hotel is named for its ease of access to Costa Rica's top adventures. A stay here is as tranquil as one could hope after arrival into San Juan Santa Maria International Airport, which is only a few miles away.

Geared towards the midrange traveler, Adventure Inn is perfect for just about anyone looking for an outstanding deal that is conveniently located midway between San Jose and the airport, with an on-site tour center that is eager to help book excursions to more than 40 of the country's most exciting adventures, like zip lining and white water rafting.
Thirty-four air-conditioned rooms with cable TV and modern private baths await at Adventure Inn, and a solar-heated infinity pool beckons outside. WiFi is freely available throughout the hotel, and for those who left home without their mobile devices, there are four flat screen computers for guest use.
An American-style buffet breakfast is included, and dinner and drinks are served in the Moon Glow Bar & Grill, which specializes in made-to-order Costa Rican specialties and BBQ.
Rates for a large deluxe room for two start at $99. This cost includes breakfast and transportation to the airport - a deal that is undeniably hard to beat.
