budgeting costa rica vacaciónBudget is an ugly word.

It’s also, however, an unavoidable one in most travelers’ vocabularies.

Saving money while on vacation is essential. No adventurer wants to return home to an empty bank account, after all. Knowing how to reduce costs can prove difficult, however, and many tourists don’t know where to start.

Costa Rica Vacation recommends creating a budget.

Ask these questions when planning a trip to Los Suenos, Jaco or Manuel Antonio:

What forms of transportation will be needed?
What types of lodgings will be used?
How many meals will be scheduled?
What attractions appeal the most?
What items will be purchased to prepare for the trip (clothing, luggage, gear, etc.)?
Are any fees required to enter or exit the country?
How much will a passport or visa cost?
What season will the trip take place in and how does that impact prices?

Answer these questions and then tally their totals, creating a tentative Costa Rica budget. Increase that amount by, at least, fifteen percent to cover any emergency costs or unexpected purchases. This should provide an accurate estimate and help travelers better prepare.

Budgeting is the first step in planning a perfect sport fishing or family trip.
