As with any vacation, exactly what is packed in your suitcase will depend on the traveler and the type of trip that is planned. In general though, travelers to Costa Rica may want to consider adding these items to your luggage.
Books are a good item to add to your bag for many reasons. First, if you enjoy reading while on the beach or in another location, don’t forget to pack not only the current book you are reading, but at least one more to enjoy. You are also going to want to invest in some good guide books and maps as well.
Documentation is very important when traveling anywhere outside of the United States, or your home country. United States citizens will need their passports.
Place to Stay
Jaco as with many destinations has a variety of lodging options for visitors. If you are planning on a stay of week or longer, you may want to consider Jaco Beach rentals. These beautiful properties allow visitors to enjoy the comforts of home, while being on vacation.
Exotic destinations are awaiting you and your family this summer. Don’t forget your camera and extra batteries and enjoy!
