How much should I expect to spend on a vacation to Costa Rica?
Question by Sam: How much should I expect to spend on a vacation to Costa Rica?
I am traveling to Costa Rica for about five days and i am curious as to how much I should expect to spend. I plan on buying drinks at the bar and partying in addition to things like ATVs or Jet Skis. How much should I expect to spend. I already covered air fare and hotel so I am referring to spending change.

It depends GREATLY on where you are going.
For example, I am going to Pavones next week. I will spend about $ 30 per day there… that includes drinking at night, food, and maybe a fishing trip too. I go to surf.
In Jaco, I could spend at least twice that.
Throw in a Jet Ski or ATV rental, and add around $ 50-$ 150 for that adventure. I zip lined south of Jaco last year, and the cost was about $ 30.
Costa Rica can be a very cheap vacation in the more rural areas, but in the tourist areas, it is quite expensive.
