Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Costa Rican Vacation

When you embark on your Costa Rica vacation, you will not have a choice about the weather. It will be either nice, or rainy, with rainy being probable as you near the start of the green season. If it is your first visit, you will likely have an itinerary for your trip. Because the weather could change at an instant, there are a few things you can do for a better trip:
 

  1. Plan extra things to do and see. Make sure some of these things are inside, like visiting a museum and art gallery. It’s a good idea to have several places like this on the list, just in case it rains a lot. If all else fails, head to the beach, where the rain is more tolerable.
  2.  

  3. Always purchase full coverage insurance on the rental car. This will cover you if you have an accident or hit too many potholes. Expect a lot of potholes during the rainy season.
  4.  

  5. Always rent a GPS device. Most streets are not marked in Costa Rica. When getting directions from people, it’s likely to receive directions that are based off landmarks. A GPS device will help you to find different places and hidden roads. Just make sure the device is off Simulation Mode.
  6.  

  7. Avoid the mountains during rainy season. The mountains receive more rain than anywhere else on the island. This means many roads might be washed out or flooded, making them dangerous for travel.
