Costa Rica is a traveller’s paradise. With stunning golden beaches and sprawling rainforests, there is something for all kinds of travellers. We have some insider tips that will help you enjoy the country like a local with a pinch of touristy stuff on the side!
Are you ready to learn about the local expert tips that will unveil Costa Rica in a whole new light? Read on!
Keep Your Mind Open
When in Costa Rica, don’t restrict yourself to the touristy things only. Try new foods, explore local hangouts, visit the hidden beaches and forests etc. You can also veer off the beaten path and check out San Jose downtown area that pulsates with electric energy at all time. You can check out the museums in the neighbourhood or return for their spirited nightlife. There are tons of places to discover if you are willing to look beyond the popular beaches and volcanoes.
Brush Up your Spanish Skills
Language is the biggest barrier in a new country. While you don’t need to master the local tongue, you must learn the basics so that you are able to get by. If you are too lazy to learn, then you can also download translation apps and try to communicate with the locals. Perhaps they can reveal some of their hidden gems for you to explore!
Try Delicious Ice Creams
This is just one of the things in Costa Rica that often slides under a tourist’s radar because they hardly ever get a mention in guidebooks! But if you are in Central America, more so in Costa Rica, then you must try their ice creams that offer you a burst of flavour. Ask the locals about popular brands that come highly recommended.
Night Tour of Art City in San Jose
Best Time of Year To Go To Costa Rica is the one that coincides with this fantastic tour! The Art City Tour happens once in every two months. The best part is that all the museums are open for free and even the transportation between them costs nothing! From concerts to exhibitions, it is one elaborate affair that you should not miss. You can check with your travel consultant to give you the next dates for the event so that you can book your trip accordingly.
Take Long Walks in the Rainforest
Costa Rica’s rainforest is the closest you will come to wilderness and nature. You will love the rich flora and fauna that makes the experience of exploring the rainforest a surreal one. However, while you are hiking inside the natural reserve, do not touch anything as some of these plants ae toxic and can leave you with a pesky rash.
These are some expert tips that will help you plan your trip like a pro and ensure that you come back with tons of good memories!

What People Say About Us?
Where to even begin. The entire experience was a blast and their attention to detail was superb. If you are planning to visit Jaco, there is no other company you need to be looking for. They will literally help you the entire way and make you feel like family. From reservations to restaurants, to group outings, and transport; they it all covered. The accommodations we choose were great too and they were just the right fit for my group. Also, the concierge service is a must! These wonderful ladies were super helpful to our group and made us feel safe around town. Their food and club recommendations were on point! Also the chef service was a great addition to the package. Specially in the mornings before going into our activities. Thank you to all the staff for their attention detail and hospitality.
Incredible experience! I can't thank Jaco Royale enough for taking care or us. Alexa and Anna were great and made sure we experienced the best nightlife in Jaco! Ali was amazing... she made sure we experienced the beauty and culture of Costa Rica during the day. Beautiful hikes, great food, and site seeing. Those 3 ladies need a raise! They were badass! I can't wait to come back!
Jaco Royale was an amazing company! They were so easy to communicate with and accommodated 11 girls. They made us feel very safe. We stayed in a beautiful 7 bedroom house in Hermosa Playa with 24/7 security in a gated community. They were able to provide transportation to and from the airport and Jaco. Their packages for ziplining, massages at the home, San Manuel Antonio tour, and ATVing were all amazing!! Highly recommend Eli for the San Manuel Antonio tour! He knows every animal in that jungle and he really loves sharing his knowledge! Best bachelorette company ever!
This company is the real deal! Everything was transparent and smooth. Communication was on point. We had a party of 15. The house (Limehouse) was great and the chef's cooking was delicious. Everything was organized according to our itinerary. To Kattia, Mary, Liza, Vinicio, Greg, Jamie DJ Step, Norbin, Digna and Alexa, thank you all for a great time for my boys. We had a great time exploring Costa Rica and seeing what your country has to offer!
