Rate code: THXA-AXCB

Company name: Our Costa Rica Ventures

If you have rental car insurance on your credit card, you can unclick the insurance option but will still need to pay for the minimum liability insurance of $7 per day.

We recommend renting a 4x4 if you plan to discover small populated areas and beyond. However, if you are planning to stick to the highways and populated areas, a Toyota Yaris will do just fine. Make sure you bring your credit cards with rental car collision insurance. You are able to rent a GPS with your car or bring your own. You will be glad you did, especially for driving in larger cities.

No matter how many weeks you are traveling to Costa Rica for, we recommend that you pack enough clothes for 1 week plus 2 nice outfits for going out for dinner. The weather is humid and too many clothes stuck in baggage will just get moldy. Laundry machines are available in many hotels and house rentals.

  • Sun tan lotion
  • Bug repellent
  • Anti–itch cream for insect bites (there are less biting insects in Costa Rica than most places in North America, however they tend to itch when you are not used to them)

  • Hiking sneakers or good quality sandals
  • Belly pouch to carry small electronics and money
  • Pocket knife (to cut up variety of local wild ripe fruits)
  • Travel insurance documents
  • Camera
  • Long pants for evenings
