Things NOT To Do in Costa Rica - Part 1

Exotic Costa Rica is known for its lush jungles, cool creatures and some of the finest beaches in the world. However beware of these 20 things NOT to do in Costa Rica.

1. Don't Feed the Monkeys
The adorable monkeys are a big hit with tourists, but feeding them diminishes their self-reliant survival instincts. They get lazy and don't get the exercise they need can become rather aggressive... Oh yeh and it's also against the law!

2. Don't Let Your Snake Guard Down
There are 22 venomous species of snake slithering around the country! In fact, it is estimated that there are two deadly snakes per hectare there!

3. Don't Forget to Shake Out Your Shoes
We're really not trying to scare you away, just be aware that the world's most toxic spider makes its home here and might be lurking, say... in your shoe! The Brazilian wandering spider is particularly prevalent in Corcovado National Park, and is a nightmare for arachnophobics.

4. Don't Stay at an International Chain Resort
Costa Rica is full of family-run B&Bs, sustainable eco-lodges and intimate guesthouses that often have more character and charm than the familiar chains do, and will give you a more authentic experience on your vacation.

5. Don't Expect Great Coffee!
Yes, Costa Rica grows some of the richest, boldest, most coveted coffee beans in the world. (reverb) However, most of the crop is for export, so the local cups of joe aren't necessarily homegrown!

Top 10 Things to Do in Costa Rica ● The Best Tourist Destination

Best Places to Stay in Costa Rica,
Top Things To Do in Northern Costa Rica,

Back in the late ‘90s, when it was still emerging as a world-renowned ecotourism hotspot, Costa Rica (link sends e-mail)

was my first trip abroad as an adult. As a budding nature lover, my mind was blown by all of the different things to do in

Costa Rica, not to mention the remarkably rich biodiversity of its wilderness.

On my first 10-day visit I only had a chance to explore a few of the country’s 27 national parks, 58 wildlife refuges, 32

protected zones, 15 wetland areas, 11 forest reserves and 8 biological reserves. But I was astounded by the plentiful wildlife

in Costa Rica– four types of Monkeys, two kinds of Sloths, the inquisitive White-Nosed Coatis, the bizarre Baird’s Tapir,

Caiman, Crodociles, and so many different species of birds, frogs and butterflies that I lost count.

As fascinating as all the animal action was, I was even more impressed by the locals, who are affectionately known as ticos

(or ticas, in the feminine form). Ticos are known for their happy disposition and pura vida philosophy, which emphasizes a

love of the “pure life”– good food, good friends, and savoring the beauty of the world around you. Their friendly smiles and

gracious hospitality warm my heart even now.

I’ve returned to the country several times in the 20 years since my first visit, sharing my deep love of the country with my wife

and daughter. Here are my picks for the top 10 things to do on a Costa Rica tour:
1. Bask on the Beaches
2. Birdwatching in Monteverde
3. Explore Tortuguero National Park
4. Explore Tortuguero National Park
5. Hike Corcovado National Park
6. Monkey Around in Manuel Antonio National Park
7. See Sloths Up Close
8. Soak in Rejuvenating Hot Spings
9. Snorkel Cano Island
10. Whitewater Rafting on the Pacuare River

10 Things You Should Know Before Visiting Costa Rica

You might think you know Costa Rica, but do you really? Here's my list of 10 things you need to know before traveling to Costa Rica!

10 Things You Should Know Before Visiting Costa Rica:

1. 0:34 Pura Vida
2. 1:34 Currencies
3. 2:28 Wake Up Early
4. 3:13 Tipping (??)
5. 4:11 Sunscreen
6. 4:41 Tap Water
7. 5:23 Visa Requirements
8. 7:07 Cost of Living
9. 7:59 Internet Speed
10. 8:44 Healthcare

Along the way I also share other useful tips such as explaining what Tico means, and what's the real deal with the ongoing flight requirement for travellers to Costa Rica? If you've ever wondered about any of this, you won't want to miss this one!

Things to know before visiting Costa Rica

Things to know before visiting Costa Rica

Costa Rica has been a popular destination for quite some time especially considering that it is so close to the United States. The initial boom occurred in the 90's when expats decided to start relocating to the Central American country in order to move away from the high priced USA.

This has caused one of the things to know before visiting Costa Rica and that its not that cheap to visit anymore. The country is overrun with American food chains in the big cities and most of the times in San Jose and other large cities you are going find yourself eating at one of the many restaurants you eat at in the USA.

Another one of the important things to know before visiting Costa Rica is that you will most likely rent a car in order to see all of the popular tourist destinations. The beaches on the Pacific Side are most of the nice ones in the Northern part of the country and the Volcano, Arenal, which most people visit is in the interior.

The infrastructure is decent in the country although it can't compare to that of the United States or even Europe as most of the roads in the mountains to get to the places you need to are still only two lane roads. One thing that falls under what to know before visiting Costa Rica is there will be an authorization on your card worth hundreds or thousands of dollars.

It is important to note that when you do rent a car the insurance against others is required where in most other countries it is optional. You will want to purchase this coverage for others via your online booking engine or even a third party since most of the coverage that you get with your credit card or even the car company doesn't cover third parties.

Those are some of the things to know before visiting Costa Rica. Check out the video if you want to know more!

Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid on Vacation to Costa Rica
Welcome to Frog TV – I’m Adam Baker
Let’s Stop and THINK for a moment! What are the 5 Top Mistakes to AVOID when booking your vacation to Costa Rica!
In at Number 1 – Biggest Mistake Not booking with a Local in-country Travel Agent!
Be very wary of large travel sites as they team up with the big all-inclusive resorts to get as many sales as they can for income. The problem with this - is that they promote deals for sales over client experience. We highly recommend moving away from the all-inclusive options and experience the boutique hotels that offer far better service and value for money.
When using online sites you can expect inaccurate information, doctored pictures, inaccurate reviews and poor descriptions. But the biggest thing is the lack of customer service! With online travel sites and local US agents they cannot help you if things go awry when on vacation. You can try and solve an issue but you may well be on hold for hours, eating away at your valuable vacation time.

We have none of these problems. When booking your trip we encourage you to ask us as many questions as you can – so your trip really is perfect for you. Take advantage of the human factor. And if you have an issue in country our 24/7 travel experience team are always there.

In at Number 2 - Staying at only 1 destination or staying at too many! You only have a week so don’t waste it by staying at one hotel! Costa Rica has so much to offer. However on the flip side - do not try and fit too much in to see it all! Costa Rica will be here again for a repeat visit.
Our general rule is 2 destinations for 7 days, 3 destinations, for 9 to 11 days and 4 to 5 destinations for up to 2 weeks.

For Number 3 - Avoid Traveling during the ‘High Season’.
You’ll find traveling here during the high season is extremely hot and dry and very busy! It even rains more on the Caribbean side and around the Arenal Volcano- the adventure capitol. So if you can try to travel during the transition months – April to June and October to December. Plus the prices are lower as well!

In at Number 4 - Comparing it to Mexico or Hawaii!
Don’t expect the same kind of experience. Get out of your comfort zone. There are so many things to do away from the hotels and resorts. Costa Rica is a country to be seen and explored. With a great number of tours and destinations. And remember you cannot stay at the beach and visit the volcano in a day. Costa Rica is not an island like Hawaii so it’s worth splitting your trip up. Tourism plays a big role in Costa Rica, so the service is excellent and the people friendly and welcoming.

Finally for Number 5 – Avoid Waiting till the last minute to book your trip! BIG, big error. Every year Costa Rica is becoming more and more popular. The hotels book up fast especially the better ones. So if you want your first pick aim to book around 6-8 months in advance. This way you may well find better deals on airfare as well as hotels. And if you can try to avoid Christmas it’s the busiest 2 weeks of the year and the costs sky rocket!

So there we go – our Top 5 Mistakes to avoid when booking your vacation to Costa Rica. Of course it goes without saying that the 6th mistake would be not booking with us! So click here to start your dream journey with Costa Rican Vacations! If you’re not convinced just yet check out our testimonials page as we’re very proud of the memories we’ve created.

Costa Rica Finding a Long-Term Rental Home TIPS Must SEE I Promise This Will Save You Money

#CostaRica #LongTermRentals #AirBnb

Finding a long-term rental home in Costa Rica can be a daunting task, especially if you really don't know the culture or the country. I have a few tips on how to find a long-term rental in Costa Rica that may save you a few bucks and a lot of time, so if you're doing your homework, then this video is for you. I have made videos before on how to find long-term rentals but along with a few other tips, WHEN to look for a long-term rental is included in this video.
We are a full service travel agency with Costa Rica travel packages and info

If you have any questions please feel free to write me at info@travelcostaricanow.com and I will try to help you out or at least point you in the right direction.

My 'Tico House' is located about a 5-minute walk from La Fortuna center. This long-term rental when it's not on AirBnB, has 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, cable TV/internet, A/C in both bedrooms, a washer. It is pretty Tico and is fairly small. Better suited for 2-3 pp but sleeps 4. Personally, I think the BEST thing about it, within walking distance from the center of town and it is in a tico neighborhood, so you get the cultural aspect as well. If you're interested, let me know. pura vida

What To Do In San Jose Costa Rica! | Secret Spots!

If you are planning to travel to Costa Rica, and want to have a place all to yourself, come here to Tapanti National Park. We also suggest visiting Orosi Valley. These 2 sites are pretty much secret spots. As you know Costa Rica receives almost 3 million of tourists each year yet these 2 sites we visited were empty or aren't busy. If you missed our Orosi Valley vlog here's the link:

This was our 2nd day in San Jose Costa Rica, we had really nothing planned but to drive around and see more of the outskirts of San Jose so we decided to head onto Tapanti National Park.

We were pretty much the only ones there! We couldn't believe it! It was so lush and we were enveloped with nature! Unfortunately it rained quite a lot, we tried waiting it out but it started to really pour down on us. And, if you are also travel vloggers, or you just love to capture every moment of your travels, you know how much expensive equipment one could have. So we couldn't continue on ahead.

A lot of our friends told us that Costa Rica is so beautiful, and it really is, we even think it is under rated. There are not many posts about Costa Rica even though it is a popular destination compared to other popular destinations.

We hope that this video helped you plan your Costa Rican vacation, and tune in because we have lots more to come!!!

Thank you all for watching, let us know if you have any questions, comments or anything, we love hearing them!!! LIKE and SHARE this video to your family and friends!
