Holiday to Costa Rica? Follow these 9 tips!
1. Plan for the high season
2. Consider an organized tour
Veterans’ independent travelers might sniff the idea of taking a guided tour, especially in a country where hostels and hotels seem to be in every corner and English is spoken quite often.
But many activities have both high demand and surprisingly high prices, and there are few regular public bus services throughout the country. A group trip is an ideal choice for trips to Costa Rica, because you can include many experiences in one 10-day visit without worrying about availability or logistics.
3. Be prepared for expenses
Costa Rica is one of the most expensive countries to visit in Latin America – and it’s not just pricey compared to its neighbors. For certain supermarket items, such as bottled water and sunscreen, the country can even compete with the UK and the US.
To save money, eat plates with gallo pinto at small soda factories, pay for groceries and other small purchases with local currencies instead of dollars and travel during the low season (also known as the rainy season) for lower room rates.
4. Choose between the adventurous gateways
5. Pay attention to the warning when it comes to wind and weather
6. Learn the language
7. Swap the Pacific coast for the Caribbean
8. Respect the country's sustainability references
9. Also visit one or more neighboring countries
