If you have decided to visit Costa Rica this year, your choice is the perfect one- long sandy beaches, many sunshine hours, great nightlife, and amazing food. However, before heading out there to the adventure of your lifetime and enjoying your exciting holiday, there are a few pre-departure tips you should keep in mind, regardless of the destination.
Perform your research and see what the general requirements for the specific destination are. For example, check your passport and ensure that it is valid for 6 months post return. Then, check if the destination country has any Visa requirements. Do you need one to enter the respective country? Next, are the vaccinations. Yes, some countries will only allow you to enter if you have a Yellow Fever vaccination for example (such is the case in Africa). As a next step, ensure you have a good travel insurance plan. Better be safe than sorry, and if you don’t need it at all that is the best-case scenario. Ensure you understand exactly what your travel insurance covers and what are the exceptions and limitations. This way you will not be caught off-guard should anything go wrong.
Next, to the budget sector. Always check with your bank and make sure that you can freely access your accounts from your respective destinations. Inform the bank where you are traveling so that they will not cut off access to your accounts. Regarding your luggage, don’t forget to include there a first aid kit. It is not that you cannot find a pharmacy wherever you go, but it is best to have with you the usual stuff that you use – painkillers, band-aids, antibiotic cream, some vitamins, etc. Also, you should never over-pack- “travel lightly” is a good saying to follow. Pack only what is truly necessary, and especially if you are traveling with kids, you don’t want a whole mountain of stuff to carry around through airports and around hotels and resorts.
