Help us plan our 7 day trip to Costa Rica...

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 7 day trip to Costa Rica for sometime this Dec or Jan. We are going to be celebrating 10 years of being together and his 30th birthday. We have done the Mexico all~inclusive and have been left slightly unimpressed. We would love to spend some "us" time on a beach (2 days) and the rest of the time exploring.

The problem that I am having is all the sites that I have found to investigate and plan this trip are run by agents that have "specials" with the resorts, tours or even resturants. I cant seem to get an honest answer of what really is nice and worth our time and money. We will be flying into SJO and want to spend no more than 1000$ per person. Any ideas of what region, what resort~hotel, beach, day trips ect would be VERY helpful!
