We enjoyed our stay at Micaela place. It was a super clean and tidy apartment! Micaela is really great host and helped us with many questions. In general apartment is 10min from airport. Located on a main street with bus stop nearby. We personally used the car to travel around and I would say it's advisable. Within walking distance from the cost side you can find several good restaurants with good prices. Beach Roja is not so far though we used car to get there. Piscinas naturales closer , around 15 min by walk.
