Need help planning first time trip to Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

Taking my boyfriend for a 5 day birthday trip to Costa Rica in mid March. We would actually only be there for 4 full days. Neither one of us have ever been there and though we won't have a lot of time, we'd love to squeeze in as much as possible. We don't mind not having a lot of down time. We're both in our early 30's and are looking for beach, adventure (zip lining! and sightseeing), and some nightlife. From reading the different posts, I can't really tell which area would be best suited for us. We definitely don't want a sleepy beach town, but don't want a super touristy (a la cancun) area either, but beach is definitely important. We would be flying in from San Francisco. Tickets have not been purchased yet, so at this point any suggestions would be great!
Thanks in advance for your help!
M.
