It is important to wear good shoes that can get wet. After hiking along the river, crossing the river on rocks, and climbing over a large rock, you’ll get a great view of the falls and the large pool below. After a long hike, the pool is wonderful for a swim to cool down. This hike to the falls is a truly natural and special Costa Rican experience.

Vacation Planning Tips

As you plan your first tropical vacation to Costa Rica, there is so much you have to do before you can leave. Hiring a travel agent will help alleviate some of the stress that comes with planning a Costa Rican vacation. However, even with a travel agent, there are still plenty of decisions that you will have to make. Here are some helpful planning tips to make things a little bit easier for you:

  • Choose activities that you are going to enjoy. Your vacation is a time for those first experiences, but you do not want to overwhelm yourself with too many new things. Choose some activities that you have experience with, so you will not be afraid or overwhelmed.
  • Choose accommodations that offer the best in customer service. A resort or hotel can be comfortable, but if the customer service is bad, you will not enjoy your stay. Do your research and choose a place that offers the best in customer service.

Safety Tips for a Tropical Vacation Out of the Country

If a tropical island sounds like the right destination for a vacation, you have some planning to do before you can head out the door. Planning a vacation that is not within the boundaries of your country requires more planning. There are various details you must address beyond simply choosing a hotel or resort and reserving your room. There are also safety issues you must consider. Here are some safety tips to make sure your tropical vacation out of the country goes smoothly:

  • Take care of the necessary paperwork before you do anything else. You do not want to plan the details of your trip, pay for things in advance, and then find out that your passport is expired.
  • Research the area where you will be traveling. If it is unfamiliar territory, make sure you know which areas are tourist-friendly and which areas are best left to the locals. Remember: just because it is a tropical location does not mean there may not be safety risks.
  • If you do plan on experiencing some of the local culture, travel in groups. Not only is there safety in numbers, but everyone will be able to enjoy the local culture together.
  • Utilize traveler’s checks rather than carrying cash. Make use of the hotel safe for all of your valuable belongings.
  • Make sure that plenty of people back home know where you are going, how long you plan to stay, and when you will be back. Keep in touch during your vacation, so they will know you are safe.
