Hi graeagle, 
Both currencies will be accepted but if you bring USD, we recommend having smaller bills like $20’s. Hotels will probably take a $50 bill but restaurants and tours might not. Also, you will most likely receive your change in Colones. If you have the opportunity to exchange some money, you could bring both.
