Travel concerns in Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

Traveling to Costa Rica for ten days in early may. Group includes myself, my husband, 2 sons ages 7 and 1 and my mother in law. My mother in law is Costa Rican, but came to the states at age 10. Husband lived there for a year with his grandparents when he was 16. Ok, onto my question. Snakes. I hate them. I knew going into it that there would be snakes. But I also had the thought of you leave them alone they leave you alone. Then I read about the Fer de Lance. I am a bit concerned. My family has told me that in their journeys they have never encounter one or had any snake problems. Are snake encounters/bites rare? We will be in Arenal, Monteverde, Tamarindo, and Puntarenas. We will be "hiking" on well marked and well cleared trails. Obviously with two kids we not on going on any major adventures.
My second concern is theft/safety. We know to take the usual precautions. We dont plan to drive at night, keep an eye on our possessions(we aren't taking any fancy jewelry or anything like that), etc. Just wondering is it safe to lock things up in hotel safes or are they prime targets for break ins?
Any other helpful hints are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
