Vacationing in Costa Rica

If you are planning to spend your vacation in Costa Rica, then these are some of the things that you would want to keep in mind during the whole duration of the vacation.

If you expect Costa Rica to be similar to New your city or Chicago, then you are wrong. Costa Rica is tropical place where there are a lot of rainforests, mountains and beaches, that is why it is very important that you pack lightly, not only because big luggages are hard to carry around, but also because local planes or boats in Costa Rica have tendencies to limit their passenger's baggage. When you plan to go to Costa Rica, then it is only a very good idea to pack comfortable clothes and ditch the elegant fabrics for a while. And for additional information, Costa Rica has plenty of insects and can be very hot, that is why it is important not to forget your sunscreen and insect repellents.

You might also think that it is wiser to drive around Costa Rica to visit its different, beautiful places, but it is not. Due to the tropical weather and inaccessible roads, it is going to be harder to drive around, in fact, choosing to take short plane trips will be a wiser choice, because it is not that expensive, safe and can really save you some precious vacation time that could have been wasted in hours of driving.

If you are a beach enthusiast, then Costa Rica is the right place for you. If you want to fully experience the beauty of the place, you should not forget to visit the two coasts, the Pacific Ocean on the east side of the country, and the Caribbean sea on the east. Both of these  places, even though located on opposite sides, has plenty of national parks to offer and it can be really worth the effort. Learn about vacation rentals tamarindo here!

If you want to experience nature, or experience wildlife in the wild forests of Costa Rica, it is important to hire someone who is also very knowledgeable about the area, or a tour guide. It is one effective way of experiencing deeper the culture and the people of the place, and tour guides can also help your vacation more fun because of the tips and the insights they give during the tour.

All in all, if you have decided to stay in Costa Rica for a vacation, in order to make the most out of your experience, it would be a good idea to spend as much time in one place rather than hopping from one place to another in a small span of time because that will not really be as enjoyable and as gratifying as spending a couple of nights in the places you visit.
