I gotta recommend Montezuma. It's on the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula on the Pacific side. There are the most amazing waterfalls there with cliff jumping and a rope swing. Careful though, make sure you know where to jump because it can get dangerous if you don't know what you're doing.

The town's pretty small, but picturesque. If you walk down the beach towrds the el chorro waterfalls, you'll often end up being the only one in sight. It's a national wildlife refuge, so there are no roads. Therefore, not much traffic. There's a great surf break there at Playa Grande and hardly anyone is ever there (i.e. no fighting for waves). You can burn on the beach at night or even in some of the bars.

Check out my friend's website: or for more to do in that area.

PS-I'm also in Hollywood, but moving in May to Montezuma. That's how much I like it there. I'm starting a poi, surfing, spanish and yoga school:
