I've read a ton of stuff on here and everyone has put some amazing things to check out. My friend and I have been talking about going to CR but I want to get the ball rolling and really do it! I'm looking for all recommendations and pricing information. I've left the country before, but he hasn't. What's the currency exchange like? Best time of year to go? We're really into all the recreational activities that Playas del Coco seems to offer (surfing, kayaking, hiking, diving) and we're definitely outdoorsy people :) What's the best way to go about planning a trip?
