Thinking of taking family to Costa Rica in December. Haven't been back in 25 years (once i went to Indo that was it for me) but it's closer and more time friendly for my wife and 3 boys. They can all surf, ages 13, 17, 19, so can surf most everywhere down there, except for Caribbean side which we probably wouldn't do anyway.
In any case, we'd love a house on or near the ocean, beach break preferred, decent food in the area, other than that don't need much. We keep it pretty simple and are good at having fun on the fly.
Any advice is greatly appreciated in advance!
