Tips for Visiting Costa Rica

If you have been dreaming of a trip to the exotic and beautiful country of Costa Rica, there has never been a better time to visit. You can visit awe-inspiring rainforests, pristine beaches, volcanoes, and much more all in one trip to Costa Rica. The Costa Rican people, known as Ticos, are extremely friendly and welcoming to foreigners. As with any big trip, you should do a little bit of planning before you go to make the most out of your time in this amazing country. Arik Travel can help you find the Costa Rica vacation packages that meet all of your Costa Rica travel needs. Below, we will provide some common tips for visiting Costa Rica that you should keep in mind.

  1. Keep the High Season in Mind

Many of the travel destinations that attract tourism have low and high seasons. During the high seasons, the weather might be better than usual or better than the weather at home. Costa Rica has a high season, and it’s important to keep it in mind when planning your trip. If you want to travel during the Christmas and New Year period, you are traveling during high season. That means that it will be more difficult to find hotels and more expensive to travel during that timeframe.

  1. Budget out Everything

Any trip can get expensive quickly if you don’t budget your money. One way to save money is to cook some of your meals or eat as the locals do. Another way is to work with Arik Travel to find the best Costa Rica vacation packages at an affordable price. You can get by using dollars in Costa Rica, but you might end up spending a lot more money by doing so. Instead, change your dollars into the local currency, colones.

  1. Prepare for Rain

The dry season in Costa Rica tends to fall between December and April. That being said, rain can strike at any time during your Costa Rican travels. Lots of the main touristic destinations in Costa Rica are in rainforests, which means when it rains, it rains hard! Bring your best rain jacket and rain gear to be prepared for the epic thunderstorms that can occur in Costa Rica. It’s always better to be over-prepared.

We hope these tips have given you some practical advice ahead of your trip to Costa Rica. Remember, if you need any help planning out your ideal Costa Rican experience, Arik Travel can set you up with the best Costa Rica vacation packages!
