Costa Rica

Keen to spend ten days looking around early April. Travelling solo. Like to party where locals go and to enjoy great days associated with good socials on beach. I like history as well. All recommendations on places to visit, methods of convenient travel and good quality (clean and location) hostels appreciated.

1. Re: Costa Rica

I suggest you get a good guide book for Costa Rica. There's just too much to write about in one post. The Moon Guide is probably the best - but - the Lonely Planet guide is good, too.

Costa Rica is really about nature: rainforests, cloud forests, volcanoes, waterfalls, rivers, wildlife. If you are only interested in partying at the beach, coming to Costa Rica is probably a waste of money and you could do better on one of the Caribbean Islands.

Still - you can look here for some good general information: www.anywherecostarica.com or here www.costa-rica-guide.com

For distances and travel times: www.yourtravelmap.com

For hostels - use hostelworld or hostels.com and check out: Montezuma, Jaco, Puerto Viejo and Playas del Coco.
