Highs & Lows

The wildlife and the preserved nature, jungle lifestyle!

Very touristic in some places, and very wet (end of rainy season).

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would perhaps have come a bit later in the year (December for exemple) because in November it’s still very rainy and wet!

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    I was a bit disappointed that a lot of nature is not free. You have to pay for everything in Costa Rica, each waterfall, each national park,… requires an entrance fee.

  • Any surprises?

    Animals are living with you in the hostels, in the streets, it’s amazing! Don’ be afraid they are part of the country and are more afraid of you. Just don’t leave food outside or in your dorm (raccoons love to steal)!
