Should I book everything before coming to Costa Rica?
If you are on limited time and know exactly what you want to see then yes book it all in advance. But if you’re not sure about everything and you have some time then why not book the important thing that take time to organize eg. Long tours, rental car and Spanish lesson before arriving and leave the other days open for what you’ll hear by talking to other travelers and with the help of local tourist info office, which usually have brochures from all around Costa Rica including tours offered by other offices. Don’t forget to investigate your travel guide books. There are many to be found in many different languages. Two of our favorites is Lonely Planet and Moon Travel.
