Watch out, Costa Rica...here comes the cast from Real World: Austin! The housemates are so psyched to be in Costa Rica that they head straight for the beach as soon as they arrive at their ocean-view hotel. And of course, it wouldn't be a vacation without a late night of bar-hopping and hitting the town. On their way to the bar, several locals ride past the housemates on their bikes, yelling to Melinda. A jealous Danny does everything he can to restrain his temper. "It's hard not to snap" Danny tells Nehemiah later that night at the bar, describing his feelings for Melinda.
The next day, the housemates are surprised when they are taken to a canopy tour, where they swing through the trees of Costa Rica on a zipline. Melinda swallows her fears and lets the wind sweep her away, following her roommates down the line. Later that night, the housemates celebrate their big day by heading out to the bar. Danny and Melinda stay behind, telling everyone else that they want to enjoy the beach.
Lacey's fears are also put to the test, as the housemates are taken to the waters to go surfing, and later on go whitewater rafting. The waves are anything but comforting to Lacey, who gets out of the water earlier than any of her roommates during their surfing lessons and tags along with the whitewater rafting instructor on their rafting adventure.
Later that night at dinner, Lacey makes a discovery about Wes. Finally, she realizes who Wes resembles--Prince Harry. That night Wes pretends to be Prince Harry, only with a Kansas accent, and ends up meeting a lot of girls. Nehemiah and Danny back him up, searching all of the girls that approach him, and pretending to be his bodyguards. In the spirit of the joke, Danny asks Mel if she would ever hook up with Prince William. Mel tells him she totally would if she were single, but drunken Danny completely misunderstands, and dumps her at the bar.
The next morning, Danny realizes the huge mistake he made the night before, and doesn't know how to approach Melinda. Danny finally apologizes to Melinda, telling her that he was acting immature, and was very drunk. The couple makes up just in time to spend a few happy hours together before their return to Austin.
