What Should I Bring for My Adventure Vacation?
There are several essentials to pack for an adventure vacation. Most of these items are readily available in many Costa Rican stores.
Camera with a durable camera case
Breathable, waterproof shell jacket
Small flashlight (for cave tours and nighttime tours of the jungle)
Bring plenty of extra socks, comfortable shorts and pants, and at least two long sleeve t-shirts — especially for Monteverde, where the nights are cool.
If you plan on doing any hiking or adventure activities like rafting, rappelling, zip-lining, or cave tours, you should bring comfortable, durable, close-toed shoes. Your shoes will probably get dirty, so a darker color is preferable.
