Costa RIca is an amazing country, and if you have the good fortune to go, you will be in for a treat. Here are some tips Climate: the central valley (San Jose and surronding areas) is very temperate, between 70-80 F everyday. Guanacaste, Limon, Puntearenas are very hot 80+ Fr People: Costa Rican are incredible, very hospitable, friendly, well-educated and very peaceful. Some get a little roudy with a few shots of "guaro", the local sugar cane alcohol. They will charge you more for stuff if you a foreigner, but it wont be highway robbery. Road/Driving: The road quite honestly are terrible. A trip that would take an hour in the US will take closer to 2 in CR. Also Costa Ricans are very "spirite" drivers, so keep up your attention when driving Must DO's: Manuel Antonio State Park, Volcan Arenal or Poas, Guanacaste Beaches( Tamarindo is beautiful), the cloud forrest in or around Siguirres, Zip lining or Canapy ride thats available all over, tour a butterfly farm and a Orchid farm which also are very plentiful, Avenida Central shopping in downtown San Jose, and drink lots of fresh coffee and eats lot, lots of Gallo Pinto (one of the national dishes- rice with eggs, cheese. It is out of this World!!!) Have lots of fun, you will not regret a trip to beautiful Costa Rica. Pura Vida!!!!! report a problem
