Travel Tips

Absolutely! Costa Rica is known for its gorgeous beaches, lush rainforest, and abundant wildlife. Here are some tips for your travel to La Fortuna, Paquera, Rincon De La Vieja, Playa Hermosa, and Manuel Antonio:

Best Time to Visit:
Typically, the best time to visit Costa Rica is during the dry season, from December through April. But weather may vary depending on specific regions within the country.

Route and Accessibility:
San Jose is the main international gateway to Costa Rica. From there you can easily travel to your destination cities by renting a car, taking an internal flight or opting for public transportation.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
Apart from few regions, Costa Rica, in general, is not known for high altitudes, so acclimatization should not be an issue. Take regular precautions if you're hiking in elevated regions.

Accommodation and Booking:
It is best to book your accommodations in advance, especially for popular places like Manuel Antonio. There are options ranging from luxury resorts to budget-friendly hostels.

Clothing and Essentials:
Pack lightweight, breathable clothes for the day and warmer layers for the cool evenings. Don't forget your swimsuit, waterproof jackets, good walking shoes, bug repellent, and sun protection.

Health and Safety:
Ensure your travel insurance covers any potential activities like zip-lining, white-water rafting or hiking. Always be cautious around the wildlife, and avoid feeding animals.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Costa Ricans, known as Ticos, are generally friendly and polite. When communicating with locals, do it respectfully. Avoid touching or feeding wildlife and respect local customs and traditions. Respect the environment by not littering and reducing your carbon footprint.
