I am with mixed group of between 4 and 8 people (some undecided) going to Costa Rica this November 14-22. We are as of yet undecided on where to go but have pretty much settled on somewhere in the Central coast. We are flying into San Jose and like the easier drive plus it sounds pretty fun too.
What we do not know is exactly where to stay. We are trying to spend under $200 per person for the eight days and would like a house on a beach and so far all we have found is one in Esterillos Oeste and one in Playa Hermosa (by the Alemendro tree) We were also looking in Manuel Antonio but couldnt find anything in the price range. We are all pretty much beginners (having surfed in NC for a few years on fun boards) and would like somewhere where we could have fun in some pretty big surf, at times, to step our game up. We would also like some decent nightlife nearby, if possible.
We would like a nice beach/sand bar break like would be very consistent (like those head high beauties you see in the movies rolling in at set intervals). What would be best in NOVEMBER??? I have heard mixed things about this area during this time of year (is it dry or green?) and so on. Also, if you reccomend somewhere outside of the Central coast, that's cool too.
That's a whole lot, I know. Thank you!!!
