Travellers and citizens of all countries not listed above, nead a Visa obtained from a Costa Rican embassy or consulate before travelling to Costa Rica.


If you're travelling to the beaches, anything goes in terms of beachwear. Nudity is not legal but tolerated in some secluded places.


When you visit the capital and higher parts of the country, it is necessary to bring a light sweater and warm clothes because it can get fresh and sometimes cold (at San Gerardo de Dota on the Inter-American Highway at 3000m altitude temperatures can become below freezing).


There are no epidemics in Costa Rica, but it is recommended to get general vaccinations and we suggest you bring a medical history in case you become ill or if you are currently suffering from a illness.


The tap water is safe in most parts of the country, and bottled water is available everywhere. If you require health assistance, Costa Rica provides good service at the hospitals and regional medical centres.


Always watch over your belongings at all times. Keep your passport at the hotel and carry a photocopy including entrance stamps with you at all times. Don't bring or accept marked or ripped bills because there might be problems with acceptance.


So what foods are safe to eat? Any foods that have been boiled are generally safe, as well as fruits and vegetables that have to be peeled before eating. Avoid eating uncooked or undercooked meat or meat that is not cooked just prior to serving.
