Packing List For Costa Rica Adventures

What To Bring

Costa Rica is a country located just 8 degrees above the equator. Most of the country is humid and warm temperatures during the day but in evenings and mornings it can drop down into the ’60s. Electric outlets and all major credit cards except American Express are accepted in Costa Rica. Here is a standard packing list of what to bring when visiting Costa Rica:

Costa Rica Vacation Adventure Packing List

  • Up To Date Passport
  • EXTREMELY CASUAL…can be hot, cold, sunny and wet all in one day
  • Cash/credit card for tipping guides and souvenirs!
  • Shorts for hiking and hanging out
  • T-Shirts, polo shirts, or hiking shirts
  • Pair of long pants or jeans for hikes
  • Bathing suits (good to have 2 because sometimes you need a 2nd before 1st is dry)
  • Water shoes with straps for rafting, zip-lining & rappelling
  • Flip-flops for a shower or getting up at night.
  • Light jacket (gets cool in the evening)
  • Light rain gear – you will use it daily
  • Hats and sunglasses
  • Sunscreen – the sun is very intense, and when it rains! Insect repellent.
  • Camera & charger, small flashlight.
  • Toiletry items
  • Prescription meds (pack at least 2-day supply in carry-on)
  • Dramamine – your new best friend & mine, I like to keep the bus clean!
  • Large Ziploc or plastic trash bags for traveling from hotel to hotel with wet bathing suits or wet dirty shoes
  • Day pack / Back pack

Note: Think about only bringing a carry-on. It’s really possible for a week, especially with quick-dry clothes. Most airlines are charging for checked luggage now. But don’t worry we’ll be handling your luggage when you’re here. This is not a dressy place!
