My husband and I (from Vancouver, BC) are planning on going to Costa Rica for the very first time in the first week of December for 1 week. This is a bit of a last minute trip for us, so we don't know much about where we should stay. Is it better to do an all inclusive or just book flights and hotel separately. What area should we be staying in that is close to most attractions with good food nearby? We are looking to relax, but would also like to get a feel for the culture and environment as well as do some outdoor activities. Any suggestions on good/clean accommodations and where to book activities would be greatly appreciated!
