Travel Information

Just a couple important travel points to know before you arrive in Costa Rica:

  • The water is SAFE to drink in Costa Rica, you can drink from the tap
  • Check the CDC’s website prior to travelling to Costa Rica to make sure you have all your necessary vaccinations and any other health advisories that may be important, you can find that information here:
  • Check with Airline for weight allowance. If you have connecting flights-especially with multiple airlines- check if your checked luggage is being transferred for you or if you need to pick it up and recheck it on your stopover-you can ask this when you check into your first flight
  • You MAY need US$29 to pay departure tax in Costa Rica when leaving. I personally wasn’t asked to pay this but be sure to have this put aside in your wallet in case they ask you to pay it
