  • Costa Rican law prohibits smoking in any public place (including our property).
  • A valid passport is mandatory to enter Costa Rica.  It is a good idea to look up the travel requirements from your particular country of residence.
  • Many guests ask about tipping: in general, it’s customary to tip in Costa Rica, but not required.  A 10% gratuity is automatically included in all restaurants, but customers typically add an extra 5 -10%, especially if the service exceeded expectations.  In hotels, a good rule of thumb for tipping housekeeping is $5 – 10/ night. Drivers typically receive a few extra dollars for short cab rides, more for longer trips, and tour guides/instructors are customarily given around $10 per individual on the tour.  Please remember these are only general guidelines.
