first time to Costa Rica

What would be consider the best "hippie" spot in Costa Rica? I know there are so many eco-tourism and environmentally focused places, but is there any one place that is considered the best?

And, what would be the best place for surfing and eco-tourism?

Dominical! There are more eco friendly places but Dominical has the hippie surfer vibe down.

Why not adding some "rasta" vibe to the mix? Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean side.
