San Jose - There is a really cool place in San Jose called "El Pueblo" that is a little area packed with a bunch of different little bars and dance clubs. Just ask a taxi driver to take you there. Always keep a low profile in San Jose and don't get too drunk or you might get in to some trouble.

San Jose - I'm going to Costa Rica on a surf trip but was thinking about spending a couple of nights in San Jose. Just wondering what areas I should checkout for nightlife. Thanks. See ya in the water.

Buying a car - Here's the website for Lachner & Saenz, they are one of the oldest and most reliable car companies in Costa Rica. They sell Isuzu, Chevrolet, and Hyundai vehicles.

Buying a car - First of all, don't buy it from a personal seller or a sketchy "used car lot", sometimes they will sell you stolen cars. Make sure that wherever or from whoever you buy your car is a dependable, honest, and reliable source (ask around). Insurance is usually not too expensive and you have to go through the Instituto Nacional de Seguros (INS). Your best bet is to buy through the used car lot of an agency like Lachner & Saenz or Toyota. They will help you with the paperwork and insurance. If you want a 4X4 I recommend buying a turbo diesel truck like a Isuzu KB or a Toyota Hilux, they are very good in tough roads and very affordable for your wallet. A new one runs for $24,000-30,000 depending on engine and extras. You will find better deals with used ones and there are lots.

Backyard is a cool Place - But it is expensive for the average surf seeker. If you can afford it then why not, but otherwise you should try on of the other places on that road. Also, backyard has ladies nights on Wen. & Fri. They are great places to start a night before heading to Jaco.

This place is amazing, the rooms are super confortable, you'll get a beatiful ocean front view. It's a nice place at night too, it has a cool bar were you can hang around with your friends and chill, everybody here is awesome!
The waves in Hermosa are consistant, in fact, they are pretty big, but some advice, if your a begginer, it could be risky... But despite that, it's amazing!

To buy a car in Costa? - Hey I'm thinking of buying a car (4x4)when I'm going down to Nosara in August.I'll be travelling up to Nicaragua and down to Panama. Any idea about prices for a old used one? (in us dollars please) And how about inscurrance? Pardon my english.

Thanks, Stig (Norwegian)

Local advice - If you want good food and surf, go to Jaco. Tamarindo is a cool place to go but the surf is very inconsistent. Jaco is pumping most of the time.
For the other guy going I would say go to MalPais, the waves are awesome there and the place is just beautiful.

May trip - Planning a trip in May. Not sure whether to go to the Tamarindo area or to Jaco. Hearing good things about both places from people I know, but they've never been there. Anybody who's been there can tell me? Not so worried about the night life, just surfing and good food (and a couple of good local bars.)
