im looking for experienced input here, debating whether I should go to costa rica or ecuador for a month in december/january. we have lots of connection in turrialba and some work safety boating the pacuare as well as free housing. in ecuador the rent is $30 a month and shuttles are much cheaper but plane flights are about $600-700 for costa rica and about 800-900 for ecuador. anybody want to tell me where i should go. why/why not either place?
