What is the average cost of living for a one-month stay?

A realistic budget for one or two people who want to live comfortably, eat out (occasionally), and travel on weekends would be about $2500+ per month. Of course, you can live simply and not spend nearly as much, but it all depends on your lifestyle and how much you’d like to see and do while you are here exploring Costa Rica!
