What a great vacation we have planned for your family!  They are a blessed group of kids and I pray this will be a wonderful celebration of graduations and family togetherness!  

A few reminders/"don't forgets":

- Passports

- Travel Docs 

Remember that: (valid in 2022)

A return flight ticket is needed when entering Costa Rica. The immigration officer will ask for it upon your arrival. It is advisable to make a photocopy or take a picture of your passport with the entry stamp to carry at all times during your stay.

Visitors to Costa Rica must have a valid passport as well as proof of their intent to exit the country before their visa or entry stamp expires, usually within 90 days.

Masks (shouldn't need much, but doesn't hurt to have)

- Vaxx cards for whoever has them...again, shouldn't need, but travel with if you have one.

- Vacation Attitude/Beatitude:  "Blessed are the Flexible, for when they bend, they will not break!"

- Mobile Passport app (will help expedite you through customs upon returning to the US)

*Important update (April 1-2022)*

Starting April 1, the temporary immigration measures for entering Costa Rica – put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic – are repealed. This eliminates the requirement to complete the epidemiological form known as the Health Pass and the requirement of medical insurance for unvaccinated foreigners.

All commercial establishments, activities, and events can operate at 100% capacity.

Although the use of a mask is not mandatory, it is recommended to maintain the protocol of hand washing and temperature taking, as well as compliance with health protocols in each tourist activity.

- Some Cash... for your drivers, especially 

US dollars are widely accepted in Costa Rica. Bring smaller bills like $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills. The bills will need to be in good condition as they will not be accepted if they are ripped or torn.
