what to bring to Costa Rica?
Besides bringing light clothes for warm days in the tropical country, and swimwear for the beach, you should also think that it often rains in Costa Rica.
So you should bring a good raincoat (every Tico always carries an umbrella around, and every biker has its rain protection). You should also know that Costa Rica is located in a high area, and it is very cold.
On the Cerro de la Muerte sometimes are measured negative temperatures. Who wants to use the public bus should carry something warm to wear in his hand luggage. Often the buses are strongly air
Otherwise, the equipment depends, of course, in the type of activities that you are planning to do. Who is going for hiking, needs appropriate footwear; for rafting, you may need simple rubber shoes (sold locally very cheap); and for the beach, you'll need slippers.
Sun protection is also necessary in the rainy season, and also good protection against the mosquitoes.
GPS and Maps
If you go to Costa Rica, it is highly recommended to use a GPS. Clients who booked a roundtrip or part of it with us, receive a free device and we will pre- program the main objectives and routes. In this device are the most actual maps, it is brand new, and it speaks several languages. As well we rent the device for a small amount of money, if you only need a goog GPS.
