Money-Saving Tips for Trips to Costa Rica

Even people on a budget deserve an unforgettable vacation. If your funds are not as large as you would like them to be, do not let that discourage you from planning an amazing vacation to Costa Rica. A trip to Costa Rica does not have to put your bank account in the negative. You just have to know how to plan according to your budget. Here are some budget-saving tips for anyone wishing to experience the beauty and grace of Costa Rica.

• Choose your accommodations with cost in mind – but not necessarily at the forefront. Just remember that sometimes price can affect quality. Choose your accommodations with care. For instance, the El Sano Banano village hotel is a sister hotel to the Ylang Ylang – so you can enjoy top-notch accommodations for an affordable price.

• Enjoy activities that do not cost a penny. Instead of planning an itinerary of expensive activities, plan to do things for free. Sightseeing, swimming, soaking up some sun on the beach, taking a nature walk – the possibilities are endless!

• Shop around for your food. Talk to the locals and find out where to get the best local cuisine. Sometimes those places off the beaten path can give you the best taste and the best value!

• Visit during the off-season. You can save a lot of money in travel expenses, as well as hotel expenses, by visiting Costa Rica any time other than the peak tourist season. You will still get to experience the beauty and grandeur, only for a lower price.
