Costa Rica, Figures and Facts
For a small country, Costa Rica has one of the most diverse climatic conditions you could find. With micro-climates affecting different regions, the weather here is divided into climatic zones, each of them unique to the area they belong to. You can find tropical weather on the Caribbean coast, misty and foggy conditions in the highlands, dry and arid climate in the lowlands and the most pleasant weather of all, found in the Central Valley with average temperatures of around 22 degrees Celsius.

Local laws & customs
Due to local customs and etiquette rules some countries observe a strict dress code. This is especially true for most Muslim countries. Please show respect for local customs and dress accordingly so as not to offend locals or attract unwanted attention.
Some countries also have strict custom laws on what items you can import and export. Always check with the local tourist board before travelling.
Be aware that prior to visiting some countries you may need to get specific immunisation against some diseases. Consult your local GP and check with the FCO website to find out if you will need any vaccinations before travelling. Also, to ensure your health is covered while you’re away it might be worth investing in some health insurance. In some countries this is a strict requirement.
Some countries require specific permits or visas to allow entry. Please ensure your passport is up to date in advance and check the FCO website for more detailed information.
