To help make your vacation as convenient and pleasant
as possible, we will be sending you a list of suggested
travel gear for each of the trips you book with us.
Review the list and pack accordingly. Here, we suggest
certain very useful tips:
of the most important things to bring to Paradise
are a pair of good binoculars, sunscreen and
ample supply of your favorite toiletries and
health remedies are recommended for your personal
comfort. Once on the road, you don't want to waste any
of your valuable vacation time shopping for such items
should you require them.
clothing: shirts (cotton or light synthetic,
long- and short-sleeved), trousers (cotton or light
synthetic pants) Jeans are not recommended (too slow
to dry). Hiking shorts. Footwear should be waterproof
(light weight hiking boots, river sandals), tennis shoes
or running shoes. If you do not bring hiking boots we
recommend you bring TWO pairs of tennis shoes. Specially
in the rainy season. Check on weather.
As soon as one pair gets wet, use that pair any time
to you likely to get your feet wet. Go to any length
to keep the other pair dry! Socks—bring extra pairs
in case feet get wet
things to bring:
Rain gear—poncho, raincoat and umbrella
Hat(s)—with visor for rain and sun protection
Plastic water bottle—especially for hikes
Flashlight with spare batteries and bulb
Camera with spare batteries and plenty of film
Ziplock plastic bags for spillable toiletries
Extra prescription glasses and medication (if applicable)
Small day pack or fanny pack for hikes
Sweater or Jacket (a must for highland explorations)
Plastic garbage bags for wet items
Collapsible luggage to store extra items in San José
--Travel Light: A good rule of thumb
is to gather together everything you want to bring;
then bring half of that. Eliminate all but the essentials
and start packing a few days before you leave. That
way, you'll have time to think and not worry about what
you might be forgetting. Remember, too, you will probably
be buying gifts and souvenirs; leave ample room for
them in your luggage.
Tip: To lighten your luggage, choose a color
scheme and pack a small selection of clothes from which
you can mix and match to create a varied wardrobe.
--Air Travel Packing Tip
We advise you not to pack aerosol cans; they tend to
leak during air travel. Also avoid packing glass bottles;
use plastic containers instead. Leave at home checkbooks
and any credit cards not essential for your trip, valuable
jewelry, and, in general, anything that you would hate
In spite of the heightened
restrictions at all airports, visit www.tsa.dot.gov
for the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA)
recommendations on what to pack, and make the start
of your trip as trouble-free as possible.
