What is the best way to get around?
The best way to see the country is by private air-charter. This is the quickest, and you get to see the entire country by air. Otherwise, domestic flights as well as private transfers are good alternatives. The roads are very narrow, hilly, and curvy, so we do not recommend renting a car. Be sure to learn a few basic Spanish phrases, as everyone does not speak English—especially in the more remote areas!
When is the best time of year to visit Costa Rica?
December-April is the best time to go, as it is the dry season. Rainy season is June-November, with September and October being the rainiest months.
What are the best Spring Break options?
Brownell works with several family-friendly hotels and resorts, as well as local on-sites when booking Spring Break to Costa Rica. With a plethora of activities suitable for families, children will never grow bored here! Zip-lining through the rainforest, the Sky Tram tour of the rainforest, white-water rafting and waterfall repelling are all very popular.
