Travel Thread: Tips and Resources

Ok, so I'm planning on doing a 2 week trek of Costa Rica and Panama in Feb or March. I don't want to do the resort thing this time and I'm most likely going to be travelling solo.

Has anyone done this before and have some good tips? Any good resources online for travelling around these parts? I've never really travelled alone before so I'm a little excited and a little scared. Any tips would be welcome.

*c*

ps. If you're travelling somewhere post your destination here to get some tips on your destination.

You'll fit in just perfectly with the local jungle animals. I'm sure they can hook you up with a treetop to stay in or something.

You must. You've been my travel advisor for my last 2 trips. Must continue the streak.

I'd love to find people to travel with or at least travel part of the way with. Maybe hook up with down there and tour around for a bit. How bout I'll let you know what I'm planning to do (when I figure it out) and maybe we can coordinate something.

Costa Rica was the bomb shizzy.




i suggest the west coast, the surfing regions. avoid San Jose as it's inland and kinda crappy. The real rainforests are difficult to get to, but would be definitely worth it - I only visited the pseudo-rainforests (had all but one of the requirements).

Plus the yayo is primo and the chicas look like Shakira

My comment was only based on your Halloween costume. It certainly had nothing to do with drunk like behaviour where a person would go running around like an ape pushing people and growling loudly.

yes - i took it at one of the natural hot spa places. fed by water naturally heated by the volcano a few miles away.

the colours are unreal how intense they are.

and you can actually see a couple in the background ... follow the river. the chick was smokin' hot.
