I'm sure this is a longshot but I'm leaving today to stay with a farmer friend for 2 weeks in Mal Pais. It's on the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula.

 

Again, a long shot but has anyone had any experience staying around that area with any recommendations? I know he'll have some spots but wondering if this community has any input. I know it's a big surf destination but they've decided to keep it a small town atmosphere.

 

All the posts I looked up on here people really weren't turned on by Costa Rican food, hope my experience is better.

Friends are in CR at the moment. Haven't talked about the food except to say that the fresh fruit was wonderful and cheap!<br />Good weather too.
