Travel Insurance
Travel insurance is required. We recommend the insurance company below. If you use someone else please make sure it meets the guidelines of the Travel Insurance Plus package below.
Extremely Important – Buy the Elite Plan. It is the only one that offers insurance for adventure sports.


Recommended Packing List:

Remember that everything you bring to Costa Rica is liable to get damp at some point. Books do not do well in tropical climates, so bring only what you really need. Clothes are also vulnerable and for backcountry travel in particular 100% cotton clothes can rot surprisingly quickly. Cotton clothes also don't dry out after washing, sometimes for days, and then start to mold. Blends of cotton and synthetics such as nylon work well, and clothes made of one of the new all nylon fabrics work even better though, they are a little less comfortable, having in “artificial feel” to them. Also, though you may not anticipate wearing long sleeved shirts or long pants because of the heat, you may need them to protect from biting insects or exposure to the sun.

Underwear/pajamas (great to have when rooming with other people)
Quick-dry shorts
Long Pants (light enough to wear even when it is hot and you want to avoid chiggers and mosquitoes)
Button-down, short-sleeved or T- shirts (loose and breathable)
Long-sleeved shirt (loose and breathable)
A fleece jacket or pullover
A light rain Jacket or pullover; a travel umbrella is also very nice to have
Hat (Great for shade)

Shoes and Sandals
Socks (Stay away from cotton. Once they get wet, they are very difficult to get dry)

Waterproof sunscreen

Insect repellent

Toiletries and medication

Small towel

Flash light or head lamp

Water bottle - we have not had an issue drinking tap water from the faucets in San Jose, but for smaller towns we recommend purchasing bottled water

Passport and copies of your passport (You do not need to carry your passport on you all the time, as long as you have a copy with you)

Drivers License

Money/Credit cards - dollars are accepted throughout most of Costa Rica. You can use your debit card at local ATMs to withdraw local currency (colones)

Plane tickets

Small, comfy travel pillow
