  4. Loss and theft: If your luggage is lost or stolen, or if you lose money or valuables, travel insurance can cover these losses.

Responsible travel in Costa Rica

How can you reduce risks by traveling responsibly?

  2. Buy local: Support local businesses and crafts to contribute to the local economy and preserve traditions.

  5. Choose your transport: Whenever possible, opt for public or shared transport to minimize your carbon footprint.
