2 Week TripMy friend & I, both female, are thinking about coming to Costa Rica next month (July). We want to definitely go to some beaches, hiking, sight-seeing, and see some night life.
I need your help on which part of the country we should go to .....

1your question is so vague and with such little information that i hesitate to answer. do some research and narrow down your choices -- which are many.

3Best Hiking-Corcovado allow 4 nights, need guide/permits/reservations, fly in/out is best, 10 hours bus from San Jose.
Best Beaches- Mal Pais/Santa Teresa on the pacific, 6 hours from San Jose, or Playa Punta Uva on the caribe, 5 hours from San Jose
Best Nightlife- The capital, which is best avoided, otherwise, Tamarindo on the Pacific, and Pt Viejo on the Caribe, and many other nice beach towns.
But you need to get a guidebook, decide how you will get around, and also to what degree you want to enjoy the nature and outdoors..
Top Spots for nature/adventure:
Tenerio Celeste Waterfalls
Top Beaches and nightlife.
Mal Pais/Santa Teresa
Pt Viejo beaches to Manzanillo.

5Costa rica is phony. Go to Cancun. It's much more popular (8 million per year vs 500,000)

6Come to Santa Teresa! We have a great group of women who surf here. There's girls learning and improving in the white water. Then there's some gaining confidence and pushing themselves to get better. And then, we have some resident rippers who we look up to. Wherever you fall in these categories, we'd love to catch a wave with you.
There's also great restaurants serving some of the most delicious food you've ever eaten (seriously), all super fresh and homemade. The beaches are extraordinary and you'll have the place pretty much to yourself in July. Everything is green & gorgeous. The nightlife is not as bumpin' as I wish it was, but I do like to go to Kika's for Thursday night for live music dance party and mojitos.
You'll wanna catch every sunset while you're here. There's a couple great spots to do this.... on the beach of course. At Vista de las Olas, they have an infinity pool with a swim up bar. BBQ with a big communal table. Also, Brisas del Mar has sunset cocktails on their stunning deck. Go for the electric mint lemonade or sangria. Stick around for dinner. They're known as having the best food in town for a reason!
The best place to meet people is on the beach! So grab a sarong, a bikini, and a good book. We'll see you there! Bennison
