Los Angeles to Costa Rica Travel Guide

One of Central America's true treasures, Costa Rica is small in size but huge on culture, sightseeing and adventure. Hop a flight from LA to Costa Rica to experience the natural beauty of over 20 natural parks and biological reserves - be sure to check out the sea turtles nesting at Tortuguero National Park. Looking at majestic waterfalls is awe-inspiring, but if action is what you crave, book a rafting or kayaking experience. Or, simply relax and unwind at a posh Costa Rican resort. Whatever you crave, Costa Rica can deliver.

If you're planning on leaving LA for Costa Rica, one thing to keep in mind is that you're leaving a mostly dry climate for a tropical one, meaning there will be bugs. While your options for packing mosquito repellent are limited due to TSA regulations, at least plan on stocking up when you get there. Driving in Los Angeles is...a unique experience not for the impatient; however, you at least have signs and clearly marked intersections - not so much in many parts of Costa Rica. If you must rent a car, be prepared for a new experience. Otherwise, it may be smart to arrange other transportation options. Lastly, prepare yourself for a laid-back pace in much of Costa Rica. Life in Los Angeles is fast and furious at times, so treat yourself to a break from it all in Costa Rica.

Escape from LA for a week of untouched natural beauty, cosmopolitan nightlife and jungle adventure. Use our smart search engine to find the best deals on flights from Los Angeles to Costa Rica.
