What to Bring
tone is very casual - it is not necessary to dress up for dinner. Comfortable,
lightweight apparel is best. Shorts, T-shirts and sandals are great
for the beach. For hiking, bring light pants, sneakers or hiking shoes.
Evenings can be cool in the highlands, so light sweaters or light coats
might be needed.
Don't wear valuable jewelry or carry large sums of cash. Definitely
bring sunscreen for the beach!! Insect repellent is a good idea, although
you probably will not use it much.
of currency is the Colone. We recommend travelers checks, and exchanging
them at your hotels, but many credit cards are widely accepted. ATM

way while you are in Costa Rica. Passports are typically required to
cash travelers checks.
