If you ever find yourself in a situation where you might need help, rest assured that there will always be somebody around to offer you a hand.
  3. Costa Rica is a wonderful country to visit. However, it is different from your home country regarding the cuisine, traditions, culture and lifestyle. In order to have great time, try to take in the uniqueness of Costa Rica and enjoy the best this country has to offer. Simply put, Costa Rica is not better or worse than other countries. Like all places, it is unique, and it offers a wealth of different experiences.
  4. Costa Rica’s beaches are places of breathtaking beauty, just like the country’s mountains and forests. However, not all of these places are appropriate for camping, hiking, swimming, surfing and fishing. Before embarking on these adventures, please check with the locals regarding safety. In order to stay safe, you might want to contact an agency that arranges various tours catering to all preferences, tastes and ages.
  5. While enjoying Costa Rica’s beaches, please remember to use a strong sunscreen and insect repellents to avid sunburn and painful insect bites. When heading for the beach, please be sure to pack sunglasses, sunscreen, an insect repellent and a hat. These items are also necessary when visiting Costa Rica’s mountains, where it is often hot, sunny and humid.
  6. Generally, Costa Rica is a safe place for foreign visitors. However, you should take simple precautions to avoid unpleasant situations.

By taking these simple precautionary steps, you can help ensure that your stay in Costa Rica will be enjoyable and safe.
