  • Watch in wonder as steam rises from the rumbling Arenal Volcano to create mysterious images in the sky.
  • Breathe in the fragrance of fern as you search the tropical areas of the Monte Verde Cloud Forest Reserve for the quetzal bird.
  • Watch the Pacific Ocean brush hit the shores of the Manuel Antonio National Park as endangered fauna roam freely in the lush rainforest nearby.
  • Inhale the heady aromas of fine coffee drifting from coffee plantations near the picturesque Panama town of Boquete.

Tips

  • Use the expression ‘Pura vida’ to convey ‘Hello’ and ‘Good bye’ in Costa Rica.
  • Sample some of the local Costa Rican cuisine such as Casado, Ceviche, Olla de Carne, Tamales and Empanadas.
  • Do not disturb the flora and fauna in rainforests as this could be considered a felony in Costa Rica.
  • Wear neutral coloured clothing and stick to marked paths inside rainforests to avoid snake bites.
  • Use a sunscreen lotion with high SPF content as the sun is quite intense in this region.
  • Carry cash in lower denominations as it may be difficult to get exact change for fifty or hundred dollar notes in Panama.
  • Learn a few Spanish phrases such as ‘Hola’, ‘Muchas gracias’ (Thank you very much) and ‘Por favor’ for your travel in Panama.
  • If you are in the mood to shop for handicrafts in Panama City, head to Mercado Nacional de Artesanias that is close to the archaeological site of Panama Viejo.
