This thread is marked as being about Costa Rica

I will be visiting Costa Rica for seven days in early June. I am asking a question about money. ;) I will be traveling with a group, but this question is specific to myself. I am curious as to how much money (USD) i should take. Food, Transportation, Hotels, activities (zip lining, white water rafting, etc.) is already ready paid for. The trip is all inclusive. The money I will be taking is just for souvenirs, and odd and end things...drinks, extra snacks, etc. Any numbers someone can recommend. This money will only need to support myself. I am thinking about 600 bucks, but maybe that's to much?

Yes, dont take all in cash. Take $200 or so in cash, and an ATM card, that way if you lose some, you havent lost it all

I'm spending three weeks in Costa Rica in June/July. My accommodation is paid for but I need money for food, activities, some transportation and whatever I would like to bring back home as souveniers. You think I will need 600 USD per week (1800 USD in total)? Or is it actually not enough?
