My girlfriend and I are backpacking from Cancun to Costa Rica this winter. I have the trip mostly planned out all the way through Nicaragua and I'm looking for some input on where to stay in Costa Rica. We're looking for a place to settle down for about 3 three weeks at the end of our trip (end of march to mid april) and possibly rent a villa. We are intrested in a a place with a nice beach and good surf for beginners. I know there's lots that meet that criteria any input would be great.
