How can I add comments to a PDF?

I want to be able to make notes on a PDF file that has been sent to me, but don't know what program to use. I need to highlight or comment on errors in the original text, save the document, and send it on to someone else.

I'm running Windows on a Mac, and have a PDF document that I need to read and comment on (specifically, look for mistakes). I don't want to have to write a separate list of comments - too time-consuming and fiddly, for both me and the person who will read my comments - but I don't have access to a printer or scanner so I can't print out the PDF, mark it up by hand and then scan it, which is what I usually do.
What programs are there that would allow me to "write" on a PDF (eg highlight or add comments)? Free is best, but I don't mind paying for something that will do what I need it to (preferably less than $100 as I'll only use the program once, but will consider all options). I'd prefer a Windows program, but will use Mac if it's the only option.
Google offers a mind-boggling selection of possibilities and I don't know where to start, so would like some personal recommendations. Thanks!
