I lived in the central valley for a summer and will be backpacking down the Caribbean coast in March. It's a lovely country and I've been doing plenty of research. Here are a few tips I have gleaned.

If you are renting a car, then rent a GPS too. Costa Rica was the first country to have GPS, and it's handy to say the least.

If travelling by public transportation (because that is what most people do in Costa Rica) then watch your stuff very carefully in San Jose.

Always check your bed for scorpions depending on where you are going. I have two products that have been handy for me so far. The New Key to Costa Rica is a good guide for the ecotourist and the Toucan map nice.

Have a great time. Will look forward to seeing your pictures from the west.

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
