Before you travel to Costa Rica, you have a lot of preparations to make. You can’t just hop on a plane and jet off to Costa Rica on a whim, especially if you’ve never traveled out of the country before. Here are some general traveling tips to keep in mind before you set off for Costa Rica.

  • Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork – you absolutely must ensure you have all the necessary paperwork in place before planning your trip. Make sure your Passport and tickets make it out the door with you to the airport.
  • Pack accordingly – once your paperwork is in order and you choose your vacation dates, start doing some climate research to ensure that you pack properly. Costa Rica, with all of its beauty, does have its own off-season. While you can save money during the off-season, you have to make sure you pack for the weather.
  • Enlist expert help – traveling out of the country, especially for the first time, can be intimidating. You have to make all your plans without any firsthand experience of your destination. Hiring a travel agent to help you map out the details can relieve the stress associated with traveling out of the country. Once you’re a seasoned traveler, you can plan your trips like a pro!
