Tips for Traveling in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is an incredibly beautiful place that you need to visit at least once in your lifetime.

In fact, it’s hands down, one of most treasured vacations and I am always aching to go back.

It really did steal my heart, the sights, nature, and the people.

Whether you want a family-friendly vacation in a nice hotel, an adventure in a rainforest or good food and lovely beaches, Costa Rica is the answer.

You can have it all there.

If you’re dreaming about visiting this place, here are some tips that may help you prepare for the trip.

Plan in Advance

The best time to travel to Costa Rica is between December and April. However, everyone knows that so everything is often booked weeks or even months in advance.

Make sure you don’t miss any deadlines to plan the holiday of your dreams.

Rent a 4×4 Car

If you don’t go on an organized trip and you prefer to do everything on your own, you will need a good, strong car.

Of course, there are many paved roads, but the majority are still dirt tracks and you wouldn’t like to miss out on anything simply because you don’t have the right car.

Pick Up Some Spanish

Since you already know that you have to plan this trip in advance, you can as well start taking some Spanish lessons.

It’s not a problem to communicate in English there, but knowing even some Spanish will give you a huge advantage with the locals.

Especially when it comes to negotiating prices!

Be Prepared to Spend Money

Costa Rica is among the most expensive countries to spend your holidays in. That’s not only when you compare it to other Southern American countries but in general.
