Once when I was there people told me "If you want a chill town go to Mal Pais" That place sucked bad. Shore pound waves and touristy as hell. It's pretty obvious that if there's 4 Threads in a row about CR here, and half the comments are negative, its probably an overrated, country that is completely washed up. There was a ray of hope with Gary and Keck's creeking and canyaking finds this winter that made me think maybe CR is not overrated and I should give it another try. But everytime I think of that country it's thoughts of a beautiful place gone down the sewer of a gringo land rush and ticos overcharging for everything. You can't drive 50 yards without seeing a real estate sign and a gated community. In all truth you may want to skip that hell-hole and go to Panama. Way nicer people, way less crime, way better surf and way cleaner rivers. There are towns in Panama that are little paradises, and you want pay one dime more than a panamanian would. I would'nt recomend the carribean side of any of these central american countries though.
