Snakes in Costa Rica??

Jump to last reply

Okay, so I'm planning a trip to CR for August, but I'm a bit snake-a-phobic. I realize it's the rain forest and there are snakes; however, I saw this reptile special on the Discovery channel that freaked me out the other day. This guy was tracking down some of the most poisenous snakes in the world all over CR and even super poisenous sea snakes somewhere off the coast of Coco beach. So, my question is... has anyone had any real run-ins or problems with snakes on land or in the water? If so, what areas are the worst? I'd rather avoid any areas that are known to be "infested", if there are such places! Thanks!
~yes, I'm chicken :)
