So I'm wanting to travel to Central america for vaca over the Winter for about 10 days or so. I've kind of narrowed down my choice to Nicaragua or Costa Rica but still am open to options. It would be myself and probably 3 other guys going to relax a little, but mainly to party it up at night and at the beach scene during the day. Anyone have some direction here as to where to go and stay? Would like to see our money go as far as possible for the most fun. I realize its not as happening as Cancun and have no desire to go there since I've been there enough times already, but would like a similar atmosphere on a smaller scale obviously. I appreciate any advice and opinion that people might be able to give.

Hola, here's some advice from one of our Away.com editors, who was in Costa Rica and Nicaragua last month. Pasting her reply here as she's on the road right now! "I would check out a small town in Costa Rica called Montezuma. It's on the Osa Penninsula. The town itself is very small -- not the huge resorts lining the coast like in Cancun. It's a big backpackers town, lots of young people with unique stories. You mentioned wanting to travel cheaply -- you should be able to get into a hostel here. The food in Costa Rica isn't terribly cheap but it depends on how you eat. There's always ways to save money. The surf scene is huge here. I suggest renting an ATV to get around (you would just need two for four of you). They're reasonably affordable and so worth it. We paid $100 for an entire week of rental. There's little bars and even a "nightclub" in nearby Santa Teresa. If you want to stay in Montezuma at nights, there's a party scene there too. Very laid-back, sometimes just a crowd drinking on the beach. This is also the departure point for Isla Tortuga, which is worth checking out and snorkeling for the day. Most tours serve you lunch and all the free beer you can drink. Hope this helps!"
