Hello again Kenda! Your Costa Rica Adventures by Disney
trip is still a long way away-but anticipating and planning are half the fun! You're visiting Costa Rica at one of the best times of year, in my opinion. Be prepared for warm and sunny weather! You'll want to bring your shorts and t-shirts, as well as bathing suits, but also some light-weight, long sleeve shirts and pants for times when you will be doing more jungle-related activities where you may be exposed to mosquitoes. Sunglasses, hats and good sturdy footwear will also be important. We always like to bring binoculars with us, especially in a location like Costa Rica! You never know what kinds of wildlife you'll see. And you can't bring too much bug spray - we ran out and had to borrow, so bring lots, although due to the dryer season when you visit, there should be less mosquitoes than when we went in July. Of course you'll bring your camera, but an extra battery may be helpful as well - sometimes you just get taking so many pictures your battery gets used up quickly - and unfortunately, it's usually when the perfect shot is right in front of you! Finally, if you have a rain jacket/suit, be sure to pack that as you'll want to be prepared for any type of weather you may encounter.
I find it helps to keep a list - whenever I think of some random "oh, we must bring that" type of thought, I will write it down so I don't forget later. Don't worry too much if you forget the little extras - the Adventure Guides on your trip will have many back-up products available to you-some that you probably won't even have thought you'd need - they are very prepared! You will also be receiving a "what to pack" list about a month prior to your trip.
Please don't hesitate to ask me any more questions, Kenda, while preparing for your Adventures by Disney
trip to Costa Rica. That's what I'm here for, and it would be my pleasure to help you.
