Traveling to Costa Rica is easy, and the Costa Ricans are wonderful people. We are happy to help you arrange all your in-country flights (see our flight schedules from San Jose to the Osa Peninsula), hotels in San Jose (if needed based upon international arrival and departure times), and all transfers. We recommend you take advantage of our complimentary travel services for a couple of reasons. First, our office is organized and good at getting things done. Second, Costa Rica is a small country, and should you have to deal with schedule changes, delayed or missed flights, etc, it's very handy to have us helping you. We also recommend Traveler's Insurance.
Passports are needed to enter Costa Rica. Passports must be valid for six months beyond your arrival date in Costa Rica. Remember to check your passport expiration dates.
If you are traveling with young children, especially toddlers, consider for a moment that the Osa is a jungle: a wild and remote place with all sorts of flora and fauna, often beautiful and intriguing but at the same time dangerous. The beach is gorgeous and generally family friendly but is also an ocean, inviting but unpredictable. There is no life guard or other beach supervision. Moreover, Costa Rica doesn't have much in the way of building codes or other safety concerns - nor legal concerns. Few know what a child car seat is, and you definitely will not find buildings outfitted to protect little ones, such as balcony railings that kids can't climb or fall through. If you decide to bring your Little Ones, plan to keep your eyes on them. Pura Vida.
