to figure this out on my own but I"m overwhelmed. We want to fly direct from Newark in Feb so our choices are either San jose or Liberia which is great but complicates my planning b/c I don't know which region to stay. Defn pacific coast but thats all I've been able to narrow it down to. Here is what we are looking for: family of 3 (one teenager), february, love the beach but not nec. surfing (snorkeling would be nice), the ability to take day trips to scenic/fun sites, walk to restaurants/shopping but not too much partying (a bit more of upscale restaurants/shopping rather than lots of bars), not more than a 2 hour drive from either airport. Any advise on which region I should focus (we only want to stay in one place) would be appreciated! Thanks!
