Central Pacific Travel Tips

Take the Interamerican Highway out of San Jose west towards Alajuela then exit onto Highway 34 which swings to the South and on down towards Jaco. From there the coastal road continues southeast.

Temperatures hover in the 80's F. During the rainy season, May to November, the climate gets very humid but lends to the tropical atmosphere and tends to bring down the temperatures.

With the humidity come the mosquitoes so bring along plenty of insect repellant as well as soothing aloe lotion for the itching. As with other areas in Costa Rica, a hat, sunglasses and sunblock are essential. Lightweight cotton clothing, hiking shoes, a rain poncho and snorkeling equipment are all you should need.

Agua Viva Waterfall, just before the small town of Bijagual is a great day trip destination. The 45 minute walk down the steep trail will reward you at the end with cool pools of water and an almost 200 meter high waterfall that cascades down a rock face.
