Tips on Traveling to Costa Rica in January:
New Year’s Day (and of course, the evening before) is one of the busiest times of the year in Costa Rica. Many Ticos take a vacation from work the whole week prior, which means many businesses are closed, and hotels are often fully booked. If you want to travel to Costa Rica during New Year’s, make your reservations online months in advance.
