Everything that you need in Costa Rica

This small country between Panama and Nicaragua is one of the most popular destinations in Central America for backpackers – and it’s not without good reason. Surfing at dream beaches, hiking in the rainforest and to active volcanoes, kayaking and rafting tours, an exotic animal paradise and wonderful national parks – you can experience everything here! Blogger Max Münch travelled to Costa Rica for us and sent us his packing list. Do you feel like going on an adventure and experiencing nature? Then get your pack ready for the big trip! What’s most important for this destination is to take a raincoat and long-sleeved, summer clothes so that you’re protected against mosquitoes.
