Play safely on Costa Rica's beaches with this tip

Posted by Fodor's Editors on March 11, 2012 at 1:00:00 AM EST | Post a Comment

Enjoy the beaches of Costa Rica safely. Take great care at beaches that drop off steeply as you enter the water. This is an indicator not only of large waves that crash straight onto the shore but also of strong currents. Watch what the locals are doing before you venture out into the waves&whether you're swimming or surfing.
