                              Costa Rica Information

Weather
Although Costa Rica is a small country each province is very diversified in terms of
weather. Costa Rica is divided into several climatic zones, each of which is distinct and
individual. Although generally classified as a tropical country, because of its close
proximity to the equator, Costa Rica has no real winter period and the sun shines
throughout the year. With over 12 hours of sunshine a day, the sun rises at about 5 am
and sets at about 6 pm consistently throughout the year.

The main reason for the diversity in Costa Rica’s weather is attributable to the various
elevations at which different parts of the country are located. For example, Guanacaste
has a dry arid climate as it sits on the lowlands. On the other hand, Montverde, a
highland city, is misty and foggy throughout the year due to its higher elevation. The
Central Valley with San Jose enjoys average temperatures of 72 degrees Fahrenheit and
with a cool coastal breeze.

The average temperature in Guanacaste is 81 degrees Fahrenheit. The coolest months
of the year are November, December and January.

There are two seasons , a wet season, (high season) and a dry season (low season).
There is no real summer or winter in Costa Rica and the rainy season (or wet season)
lasts from June to November. The months of December through April have little to no
rain and September and October have the heaviest rain period.

Currency
The national currency is the Colone and US Dollars are easily exchanged at all banks.
Other foreign currency can be exchanged through private agencies. All major credit
cards are accepted. The Colone rate of exchange is 518 Colones per dollar (as of Oct
2007) and can be expected fluctuate per increase.

Language
Costa Rica's official language is Spanish. On the Caribbean Coast, a small minority of
Jamaican descendants speak a local version of English and most Costa Ricans can
understand and speak some English. Quite recently all public schools made it mandatory
to learn a second language.

                     Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Q: Is the water safe to drink?
A: Yes! Water is potable in all parts of the country. We recommend that you travel with a bottle
of water at all times to prevent dehydration.

Q: Are the beaches in the area safe for swimming?
A: Yes. Hermosa, Playas del Coco, Playa Ocotal and Playa Panama beaches are located in
Bahia Culebra (Snake Bay, named after its shape), which is reef protected and the surf is
very calm. There are no riptide currents that are associated with the other beaches to the
south. Nevertheless, the ocean should always be respected by those who intend to enjoy it.

Q: Are there any travel safety tips you can offer?
A: Unfortunately, petty theft in Costa Rica is common. While enjoying a swim, please always
keep an eye on your belongings on the beach, or have a member of your party watch them for
you. Keep your money on your person or in a safe place, and never leave anything of value in
your car! It is also a good idea to keep a copy of your passport with you. Leave your passport
at your vacation home in a safe place. You don’t want to loose it! Simply use your common
sense.

Q: Are Credit Cards and US Dollars accepted by local businesses?
A: Credit Cards- For the most part, Yes. We advise you to notify your credit card company of
your intent to travel abroad prior to your departure. U.S. Dollars - are generally accepted, but
it’s better to use the local currency (Colones). Paying for goods or services with $100 bills can
be problematic. Please see bottom of page.

Q: What should I pack?
A: Costa Rica is very laid back and casual so there isn't a need for formal attire. Feel free to
go light on luggage as even the nicer restaurants have relaxed standards of dress. Also be
sure to pack walking shoes or amphibious hiking shoes to visit some areas you may want to
see. These areas are forested and feature hot springs, various wildlife, waterfalls, and
volcanos. You may also want to ride the zip lines of a canopy tour and they require closed-
toed shoes.

Q: Do I need a passport?
A: As of December 31, 2005, US visitors to Costa Rica are required to have a passport.

Q: What precautions should I take?
A: The Centers for Disease Control offers recommendations for certain vaccinations (such as
tetanus), there are no health requirements for visiting the Costa Rica.
                                                                              BeachFront Properties
                                                                                 011-506-672-1312




Q: Where can I buy bread, milk, meats…?
A: The Super Luperon is located on the main road in Playas del Coco (10 mins from
Hermosa). It’s very similar to the grocery stores in the states. Please look at the Coco map on
the last page for “Supermarket” for directions. They are open everyday from 7:30 to 7:00
except on Sundays, their hours are 9:00 to 2:00. If you need just the basic’s (bread, milk,
drinks…) we have a small “super” here in Hermosa.

Q: Will my cell phones work in Costa Rica?
A: Yes, SOME carriers have coverage in the Hermosa and Coco area. Please check with
your carrier for official detail.

Q: How can I exchange Money?
A: Every bank will allow you to change your currency into Colones. It is recommended that
you visit the bank at the Liberia airport upon your arrival. Here you can exchange money and
pay your exit tax (bring your passport) If you prefer to exchange currency on the street with a
local vendor, make sure you know the current exchange rate.

Q: When do I pay my departure tax?
A: 95% of the tourists pay the exit tax, at the airport, just before their departure from Costa
Rica. This creates a huge bottle neck at the bank and causes you to stand in line for long
periods of time. You can pay this tax anytime (bring your passport) at any Bank. It is
recommended you pay this as soon as you arrive in Costa Rica or anytime during your
vacation.

** NOTE: Due to a recent counterfeiting scandal, $100 bills with serial numbers CB are not
accepted by commercial establishments or banks. If you bring $100 bills with you, make sure
you check their serial numbers.
