My husband and I have cruised before on the Windstar Wind Surf and enjoyed tremendously so we decided to try the Jan 2 - Jan 9, 2016 Costa Rican cruise aboard the Windstar Star Breeze to celebrate his 60th birthday.
We flew into San Jose on New Year's Eve and stayed at the Hotel Intercontinental at Escazu/MultiPlaza Mall for two nights. Nice hotel; would stay there again. It's across the street from a mall and rooms are clean, pool area great and food was very good. We hired Odessy Tours to drive us to Puerto Caldero on Jan 2nd and they also drove us back to the San Jose airport airport at the end of the cruise. Very reasonable, prompt and much easier and faster than dealing with a large cruise bus and 100 other passengers.
