*Costa Rica is a very safe country to visit. As with any third world country there is some petty crime mostly aimed at tourism. When traveling in a rental car it is best not to leave anything in the vehicle unattended.

Surfers advisory when traveling within costa rica

Please ensure that your domestic flight or bus choice can accommodate surfboards. All have limitations on size and quantity at certain times of the year. We’ve had a few surfers (during high season) rent a taxi since the domestic airline and buses could not guarantee that they could accommodate surfboards. A taxi from the San Jose airport is about $150 and about $100 from Liberia. Of course, if you rent your own vehicle, the point is moot.
