It is possible to participate in fun activities even if you are sticking to a tight budget.
Our motto for saving money is to “do as the locals do.” Often I will see Ticos having a blast participating in affordable or free activities that I had never thought about.
We definitely suggest looking at our Destination Guides for the areas you are visiting. These will give you an idea of all our favorite activities in each area of the country.
We also suggest checking out our list of our favorite things to do in Costa Rica and our list of our favorite free things to do in Costa Rica.
Oh, and all Costa Rican beaches are free and need to have public access by law. So, when in doubt you can always head to the beach fora super fun free activity.
