Your personal spending in Costa Rica will include your food, drinks, shopping, entertainment and any activities outside of those included your FNEZ adventure.
For the entirety of your 10 Day Costa Rica Trip -- "Endless Summer Road-Trip", we recommend a budget of $700 - $1200. Any travel budget will fluctuate between personalities, so ask yourself: "What type of traveller are you?"
The Hippie: Brings about $600-$800 for the 10 days. Eats local food, bargains well at the market, finds good prices on drinks and picks, and chooses their optional activities wisely! This traveler is often likely to continue travelling after their FNEZ trip is complete.
The Backpacker: $800-$1000 spending money. A bit more frivolous, but is aware of their budget. Takes in most activities they are interested in, without going too extravagant. Likes to party, but always looking for a good deal.
The Rock Star: $1000 - $1200: Not too worried about their budget, they'll do almost everything, including lavish amounts of shopping and partying often. There won't be too much holding them back from activities, as this is their trip and don't want to let anything pass them by.
