Costa Rica is the most expensive destination in Central America (apart from Belize), but you'll make the US dollar go a long way still. Stay away from tourist traps of Tamarindo and the like and it'll go even further. Have a look at my travel article and photos, it might help you out. www.coastroadproject.com

Avoid tourist traps!! If you make informed choices you wont get ripped just like anywhere else. Do what locals do.
I´m costarican and I can say there is good surf all year long just knowing where to go and when. From december to march, best bet: Caribbean or Guanacaste. The rest of year: Central and South Pacific.
