I am heading down to Costa Rica for a vacation and have several vacation rental places lined up. But I figured I would just contact
all of them and see if they are willing to accept Bitcoins as payment. I know that none of them probably do right now but at least
they can check it out and possibly start accepting them.

An international tourist destination would be a perfect place to accept Bitcoins. You avoid the exchange rates and can spend several
hundred dollars with just your phone or laptop.

Side question- In January a few friends are planning to head out to Costa and rent a beach villa vacation rental. Which website did you find the best ones? Any tips.

I actually just went to google maps and drilled down to the area I am interested in and did a search for "rental" and "hotel". I found plenty and I could track them down to which was closest to the beach and distance to town etc.

I am looking at the Puerto Viejo area. They say it is more laid back and a lot cheaper than the Pacific side.
