WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU TO COSTA RICA?

 

TYPE OF LUGGAGE

 

All airline companies do not authorize the same weight for luggage (double check your ticket).

If possible, do not take heavy luggage (it is easier to travel with two small suitcases or bags than with a large one).

Domestic flights limit the weight of luggage in hold to 12 or 15 kilos (according to the flight/airline).

  • Terra Caribea’s contact details;
  • Personal medicines (see paragraph below);
  • Camera;
  • Mosquito repellent;
  • Sun protection (hat, cream, sunglasses);

Other accessories:

  • Binoculars;
  • Rain cape;
  • Plastic bags to keep your belongings dry (clothes, cameras, etc.);
