What to bring on your trip- Costa Rica

pack light for easier travel
  • Small carry on suitcase (no larger than 22" x 14" x 9" - same deminsions for an overhead carry on) and 1 personal item.

    • I suggest a back pack and put a small purse inside of it. That way you have a backpack for hiking.

  • 2 gallon zip lock bags to pack your clothes. Squeeze the air out! Zip locks protect your clothing from moisture too

  • Bring cash for gratuities, taxi service or any other food or beverage you choose to purchase. Credit cards are not accepted at Ojo Del Mare

  • Small flashlight

  • Natural bug spray 

  • Natural hygiene products, shampoo etc

  • No electrical devices. No hair dryer, no computer or tablets, etc

  • Extra batteries for camera or cell phone

  • Hiking shoes or sandals, water shoes, flip flops 

  • 1 pair of pants for horse back riding

  • Shorts/capri pants  (easy dry fabrics)

  • Bathing suit

  • Sarong or sun dress

  • A personal care kit : Band aid, cortisone cream, tea tree oil, Q tips etc

  • NO valuables, ex. jewelry

  • If you have curly hair you may want to bring head bands or scarves. The humidity can frizz it out

  • Refillable water bottle
