Costa Rica is one of the hottest destinations in the world right now, and we’re not just talking about the weather. They have so many different things to do here from laying around and bumming on the beach, to awesome adventure tours like white water rafting, and zip-lining (to name a few). Here are a few our tips to ensure you have the best and most successful trip!
If you are going to be driving yourself around, make sure you have a working phone with internet access when driving as the streets are not well marked. You will absolutely need GPS. Pro tip: If you can handle a 4-wheeler, we recommend it, it will kick up your adventure and you will have lots of fun.
When renting a car in Costa Rica you will have to use a credit card, there will be about a $1000 pending hold on your card but you will never be charged that. Keep in mind that gas is expensive, and we cannot stress this enough, stay sober because the winding roads can be scary.
If you think a path looks interesting, take it you never know where it will take you
Enjoy the areas of Costa Rica that are still up and coming; Santa Teresa, Dominical, Nosara.
If you’re going to the tour do the best of the best; Ziplining in Arenal at Sky Adventures, rafting the Pauquare River, looking for sloths in Limon, enjoying the beach in Domincal.
Enjoying a day at Manuel Antonio National Park looking for unique animals and enjoying a day at the beach is one of our favorite ventures out here!
Always try to see where the locals go, usually its off the beaten path but an experience you will never forget.
Capitals are great but there’s so much to do in Costa Rica, don’t waste so much time in San Jose.
Keep in mind how long it takes to go from city to city, the roads are long, winding and with interesting traffic, so add at least 2 hours to your trip.
Enjoy the Pura Vida attitude!
