What to pack for Costa Rica?

Jump to last reply

You guys have all been so helpful with what to do and which driver to hire and just general tips for Costa Rica, so I thought I'd ask once again for your expertise.

My fiance and I are planning on packing light and only taking backpacks (not the really huge ones, but a good size) and my camera bag on our 10-day trip. We're trying to make sure we don't forget anything. Here's our packing list so far... what have we forgotten? Anything we don't need to bring? Any suggestions for a good bug spray? Any suggestions on good backpacks?

Tennis shoes for hiking (probably old running shoes)
Anorak for wet/cold weather
Athletic shorts & pants
T-shirts (short & long sleeve)
One pair of jeans for going out at night
Couple nicer shirts for going out
Hat
Swimsuit
Water-tight bags for our river rafting trip
Bug spray
Sunscreen (I burn really easily)

And of course my camera, charger, etc.

Do we need any converters for battery chargers? Flashlights?

Thanks in advance! It's getting close - just under two months! :)
