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!

Tamarindo Costa Rica Travel Guide - Surfing, Sunsets & So Much More | 90+ Countries With 3 Kids

Welcome to Tamarindo, the second-largest developed beach town in Costa Rica and the largest one in the Province of Guanacaste!

This laid-back town that is today one of the most popular destinations for surfing and eco-tourism was once just a quiet fishing village. The locals are well-aware that tourism is the strongest suit of this paradise-like destination, which is why they are doing their best to make your stay as convenient and magical as possible.

If you’ve ever been to Costa Rica, you know that reaching their beaches is not that simple. However, Tamarindo invested in paved roads to make them tourist-friendly and they built a river bridge and an airport to make this town more accessible. Their most popular attractions are Witches Rock, Playa Grande & Playa Langosta, Tamarindo Estuary and Las Braulas National Sea Park.

If you are looking for accommodation in Tamarindo, we can recommend La Ramona Charming Hotel. They have a beautiful garden and outdoor swimming pool your kids will love. You will have free WiFi and a lovely terrace. Their staff is friendly and speaks both English and Spanish.

Enjoy the video!!!

This Is Why You Should Travel to COSTA RICA

As a country that is still opening up to tourism, Costa Rica is beautifully unspoilt. With hot, dry weather in winter, and wildlife wherever you turn, it is a stunning destination for sun-seekers, animal lovers and adventurers. And in 2019, it has never been easier for all types of tourists to visit.

The Costa Rican national motto “pura vida”, literally “pure life”, has attracted backpackers for decades. Used by locals as a greeting to mean “take it easy” or “enjoy life”, the phrase sums up the country’s laid-back vibe.

But Costa Rica doesn’t just attract a backpacking crowd any more. Thanks to a series of new non-stop flights from Europe, the country is attracting more families and couples as well.

A three-and-a-half-hour flight from Houston, Texas, it has typically attracted more tourists from North America. But while package hotels close to the airport still draw a large American crowd, eco-lodges further down the coast are aimed more at Europeans.

Costa Rica prides itself on being one of the world’s most sustainable countries; rather than star ratings, the Costa Rican tourist board awards hotels with “leaves” for their eco efforts.

Locals are keen to protect their natural surroundings for good reason. Costa Rica is teeming with wildlife, boasting more species of birds than all of North America. The parrot-like quetzal and red-eyed tree frog are most distinctively Costa Rican, but the country boasts a much wider variety of animals than those pictured on the front of guide books.

To see some of Costa Rica’s most renowned natural delights, it’s necessary to brave some treacherous roads: the only downside to visiting so unspoilt a country are the rocky tracks that make even the shortest journeys tiring. The roads along the coast of the Nicoya Peninsula are particularly bad – unless you get your thrills from driving through mini rivers. A 4×4 is essential in rainy season, and strongly advised even in dry months.

Costa Rica’s 12 climate zones mean the weather can vary drastically, and it is notably different in wet, overcast Monterverde to the balmy beaches in Nicoya Peninsula. The Caribbean coastline is the most humid, while Guanacaste – in the north of the peninsula – receives the least rain.

The beaches in the area are largely volcanic, which add to their prehistoric feel. Palm trees, rugged foliage and dark sand give the more remote shores a distinct Jurassic Park sensation. White sandy beaches can be found further down the coast. At the region’s southern tip, Santa Teresa and Montezuma beaches attract surfers who come for a season of wave-catching – or do so and never leave. Tourists dominate Santa Teresa town, but the long, golden beach makes it worth a visit.

Costa Rica offers plenty to do for everyone, from horse riding to paddle boarding. But the prospect of moving from the pool was too much for most of my family when we stayed in an Airbnb in Guanacaste. The thought of turning into a sloth became far more appealing than actually seeing one. We all took the “pura vida” to heart. Anyone visiting Costa Rica would struggle not to.

San Jose Costa Rica Vacation Travel Guide | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Welcome to San José, the vibrant capital and largest city of Costa Rica!

If you are looking for a combination of cosmopolitan urban center on the one hand, and traditional Central American city on the other, you will definitely love San José. Costa Rica’s capital is relatively young since it wasn’t established until 1738. That was the moment when Spanish authorities decided they should collect their indigenous people into one locale.

The city didn’t grow that quickly, in the early 1800s, San José was still just the size of an average village, but today it is home to more than a third of Costa Rica’s population. About 2.15 million people live here.

If you are planning on visiting Costa Rica and its colorful capital, you should have in mind that the temperatures here are tropical. 30 degrees C is something that could happen during any month of the year, but the daily mean is around 22-23 degrees C all-year-round. Rainy season starts in May and ends in October. The wettest month is September, the hottest one is April, while the coldest one is October, but those differences are barely noticeable.

Enjoy the video!!!
