I follow Costa Rica Forums almost to the point of oddness:) Why? Well, for one I love to hear what people have to say about Costa Rica and two I love to offer what I know about Costa Rica to help people work out the best Costa Rica vacation. One of the forums I follow religiously is Frommers. This particular read I found a great post by Tones, ABQTones after his trip from Costa Rica. He gives tips that have helped him through his trip and he was all for me sharing them with you guys. Since he had quite a few, I decided to give him credit for many weeks to come:)

Bring plenty of Ziploc bags — I read this before, but didn’t realize I’d be THAT wet all the time. Nothing stays dry there… and since most people do rafting, swimming, waterfalls, or just crossing over streams, you’ll need bags to separate your wet stuff from your semi-dry. I recommend the “Big Bags” for clothes and shoesÂ (bring at least two or three) and several quart-size bags. I tried to do laundry in the sink and air dry, but found it very difficult to dry most articles.
I so agree! Costa Rica is part of the Rain Forest:) The seasons here are wet and not-so-wet. I would also recommend bringing plenty of changes of clothes, especially if you’re an adventurous spirit.
