GUANCASTE, Costa Rica, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- For all those travelers out there who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, a vacation in Costa Rica can be exciting, but also easy on the wallet. By following a few recommended tips from the experts at Coco Bay Estates, any traveler can have an inexpensive and enjoyable vacation. Here are some of the best ways enjoy an inexpensive summer vacation in Costa Rica.
One of the most important initial steps for any low cost vacation is to create a budget. Coco Bay Estates recommends setting aside an amount that includes lodging costs, meals and also transportation. It can be wise to set aside extra funds for park entrance fees or guided tours if interested in utilizing those. Also, student ID cards, especially an international ISIC student card can help a traveler receive discounts.
For meals, travelers will be delighted to find that the local cuisine is both inexpensive and delicious. Some of the best places to dine are smaller restaurants called sodas. Travelers can order a daily special, which usually includes rice, beans, salad, and some savory meat for as low as $3. Another idea for saving money is to heading to a local farmer's market or bakery to stock up on food.
For transportation, the public buses are comfortable, inexpensive, and widely available. In fact, travelers can expect to pay less than $10 to ride almost anywhere in the country. However, though they are convenient, Coco Bay Estates knows riding the bus is not the best way to see the sights, so travelers can also consider renting a bicycle or taking walks around the towns in order to get the full sightseeing experience.
It's important to note that more than 25% of the country is protected in national parks or reserves, so some of the top for things to do in Costa Rica include wildlife watching in Manuel Antonio National Park, soaking in the hot spring beneath the Arenal Volcano, and watching the sea turtles along one of Costa Rica's many nesting beaches. No matter what they decide to do, Coco Bay Estates knows Costa Rica's natural beauty and opportunity for spectacular adventures will offer backpackers an experience are unlike any other.
