Budget Beaches

by Sarah Tuff

Costa Rica

Pura vida ain't so pura when you're paying through the nose for digs in a country once known for its down-to-earth vibe and prices. Happily, Costa Rica still has its rugged and relaxed corners, like the surf town of Santa Teresa on the Nicoya Peninsula. The best Pacific swells are during the rainy season, from May to December, when you'll also find discounts around town. Luz de Vida resort offers 10 to 15 percent off its already affordable rates. Built of wood to blend into the surrounding jungle, the property's beach bungalows are just steps away from the sand and the pool.

Fly Buy: Nature Air offers round-trip flights as low as $42 between San José and Tambor; then it's an hour drive to Santa Teresa (506-2299-6000 or 800-235-9272; www.natureair.com).
