What To Expect
Although this is Costa Rica and we do have a lot of sunshine, you will also want to be prepared for some rainy weather as well as sun. The mornings can be sunny or cloudy. We recommend bringing the following: Rain Jacket, Sunscreen, Sunglasses, Hat, and Face buff, Shorts or lightweight zip off pants. It is humid down here so be prepared for that.
Ocean conditions can vary. However, you do want to be prepared for the unseen. Rough waters, drizzling rain and a lot of sunshine and wind are all things to consider. If you have any issues with seasickness please take precautions ahead of time to prepare yourself for the trip. (Bonine, Dramamine)
Please provide your own lunches, snacks and beverages. We can offer a cooler bag upon request.
