Even as you travel for pleasure in Costa Rica for bachelor parties or a wedding getaway, it is important to take precautions for your health and wellbeing. Safety is important too especially if your package includes itinerary such as sampling Jaco beach Costa Rica nightlife.
Many delightful experiences are awaiting you on your Costa Rica tour. They include sampling the world-famous Jaco beach Costa Rica nightlife. Whatever the case, do not let all the fun inure you from the need to take common-sense health and safety precautions.
Most of the potential health problems you need to keep watch out for are within the purview of common sense.
The Pacific Ring of Fire passes through Costa Rica though it is rare for volcanic ash to cause much concern. It is, however, important to take note if there are any volcanic eruptions near your intended destination. This takes on more sense of urgency if you have lung issues or some other respiratory conditions.
Even for a perfectly healthy person, volcanic ash can cause significant respiratory distress and may call for some hospitalization. You can wear contact lenses or pack a pair of sunglasses as a precaution. Health problems aside, volcanic ash in the atmosphere makes for very spectacular crimson tinted sunsets.
If you are accustomed to living at sea level, you may find it hard to cope with Costa Rican highlands. A number of the country’s top tourist attractions are located over 2,500 meters (8,000 feet) above sea level. Check your itinerary before traveling to find out if you will be visiting such locations and for how long.
Common signs of altitude sickness include dizziness, nausea, irregular breathing, headache and feeling of disorientation. Talk to your doctor before traveling to find out if you need to take any panacea for altitude sickness. You can also acclimatize to the increased altitude by gradually adjusting to higher elevations.
Malaria, Zika, and Dengue Fever
Being a tropical country, Costa Rica has a share of vector-borne infectious diseases. Most of these are mosquito-borne including Malaria, Zika and Dengue fever. However, the risk of catching these is far lower than in many other tropical countries.
The best precaution against mosquito-borne diseases is to avoid mosquito bites in the first place. Most of the disease-causing mosquitoes tend to go about their business in the dead of the night. Hotels and lodges in the country provide insecticide-treated mosquito nets as a precaution.
Mosquito bites, even when they do not lead to infection, are painful and irritating. If you are going hiking in thick bush or near marshlands, apply a liberal amount of mosquito repellent on the skin.
Dehydration and Sunburn
The abundant tropical sun is a welcome relief for holidaymakers landing in Costa Rica from temperate climes. However, there is a dark side to the availability of all this sunshine and illumination.
Spending too much time outdoors can lead to dehydration. Moreover, the cooling effect of dehydration does not provide much relief in all the humidity. To avoid dehydration, take a lot of water throughout the day, especially when moving about outdoors.
The risk of sunburn in Costa Rica increases considerably, especially in the dry season. If you are sunning on the beach, remember to apply effective sun cream on the skin. Use tinted sunglasses and don a wide-brimmed hat when walking outdoors in the heat of the day.
