Be Safe in Your Trip to Costa Rica

Most people have considered Costa Rica for one of their tropical vacation, but safety is alway a concern when traveling to a unfamiliar country. Here are steps to better prepare yourselve for possible crime or cultural differences.

1. Take a deep breath and relax. You are as safe as you are aware.
2. Always know where your money is.
3. Carry mace or other non-lethal protection.
4. Try to book your hotels in advance; when you arrive in Costa Rica rates may be higher.
5. It is best to use an ATM or credit card to get money. If you must exchange Dollars or traveler's checks, use a local exchange rather than the airport.

Tips for you

* Use smaller hotels such as: Costa Rica Hotel San Gildar instead of bigger chains. That will give you a better cultural experience.


* Don't drive with your windows open in downtown San Jose. Their have been cases of quick theiverys by walkers.
* Never walk around with your passport, instead take a photocopy with you and leave your passport in the safety box at the hotel.
