Costa Rica is generally considered a safe destination for travelers. The country has a stable political environment and a strong commitment to tourism. However, like any destination, it’s essential for travelers to exercise caution and be aware of their surroundings.

FAQs on Costa Rica Tours

Is Costa Rica friendly to tourists? 

Costa Rica is renowned for its warm hospitality and is generally considered very friendly for tourists. The country is home to some of the best tours in Central America, and has a well-established tourism industry, and locals often go out of their way to make visitors feel welcome. The ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle, emphasizing a laid-back and positive approach to life, is deeply ingrained in Costa Rican culture.

Whether you’re on one of the best biking tours in Costa Rica, exploring the bustling markets, hiking in the national parks, or relaxing on the pristine beaches, you’re likely to encounter friendly and helpful locals who are proud to share the beauty of their country.

As with any destination, practicing common-sense safety measures is advisable, but overall, Costa Rica is known for its tourist-friendly atmosphere.

When is the best time to go to Costa Rica?

Seasonal weather is a key factor to consider when planning Costa Rica tours. The country enjoys a tropical climate, which includes distinct wet and dry seasons that may impact your travel. The dry season, from December to April, is widely regarded as the best for visitors. During these months, you’ll encounter sunny days, warm temperatures, and minimal rainfall, making it ideal for exploring national parks, lounging on beaches, and indulging in outdoor activities.

In contrast, the wet season from May to November unveils lush landscapes and fewer crowds. Despite occasional rain showers, the rainforests come alive with vibrant foliage, and waterfalls cascade at their fullest. This period is particularly appealing to wildlife enthusiasts, as many animals are more active during the wet season.

Regardless of the season you choose, our expertly designed small group tours ensure you make the most of your experience, whether you’re craving sunny adventures or rainforest escapades.

Which coast of Costa Rica is better for visitors?

Both coasts of Costa Rica offer plenty of incredible attractions, and which one you should visit depends on your preferences and interests.

On the Pacific coast, you’ll find vibrant beach towns, diverse marine life, and a variety of water activities such as surfing and snorkeling. The Pacific side is also home to Manuel Antonio National Park, renowned for its biodiversity and incredible wildlife encounters. This coast is the drier of the two, making it more favorable for sun seekers.

The Caribbean coast is less developed, and offers a more laid-back atmosphere. It is known for its lush rainforests, wildlife, and the opportunity to witness sea turtles nesting in Tortuguero. The Afro-Caribbean culture adds a unique flavor to the experience.

Can’t decide? Many of our tours, including Discover Costa Rica and Costa Rica’s Coastal Secrets, visit both coasts, offering a perfect taste of everything Costa Rica has to offer.

Do people speak English in Costa Rica?

While the primary language in Costa Rica is Spanish, many locals are also fluent in English, especially in areas that are popular with international guests. In more remote or less touristy areas, however, proficiency in English might vary, and it can be helpful to know some basic Spanish phrases for smoother interactions.
