    Hi Chris, there's a small Adventure Park in Cozumel that has a zipline, though it's not the best. Obviously, though, Cozumel snorkeling is fantastic. You might also consider somewhere like Dominica, a small island with both amazing snorkeling and a mountainous, rainforest interior. Rain Forest Adventures Dominica features the highest zip line tour in the southern Caribbean. Soufriere-Scotts Head Bay and Champagne Beach are both popular local spots for snorkeling!

    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!"
