1. What is the drinking age in Costa Rica?

18 years old

2. How old do I have to be to drive or rent a vehicle?

You need to be 18 years old to drive, and some car rentals will require you to be at least 21-25, but not all.

3. Is prostitution legal in Costa Rica?

Contrary to what many believe, prostitution is NOT legal in Costa Rica, especially if you pay a minor for sexual favor, you WILL go to jail.

The reason people believe prostitution is legal is because it is legal for the prostitute to offer her service and it is legal to be a prostitute, but the law says it is illegal to promote and encourage prostitution. By hiring the service of a prostitute and paying her (him), your are considered to be promoting the activity.

4. How far away is Costa Rica?

We are a short 2.5 hour flight from Miami International Airport.

5. How far away are the beaches from San Jose Airport?

The closest beaches in central pacific are 2.5 hours from San Jose, and the north pacific beaches are 5 hours away. But if you land in Liberia Airport in Guanacaste, you will be 45 minutes away from the north pacific beaches which are the most sought after.

6. How far ahead should I plan my Spring Break Trip?

Spring Break vacation drives thousands of students towards our beaches, and many vacation rentals large enough to fit such groups are quickly booked, we recommend at least 4-6 months of booking in advance, mainly because spring break is sometimes also our Easter Vacation, and Costa Ricans get van entire week off work and flee to the beaches having made reservations a year ahead of time, and very little lodging is left.

7. Is renting a vehicle recommended?

Absolutely. While you can get by on private shuttles and public transportation, spring break groups in general are very active and like to get around as many beaches possible and go to as many tours as they can, and this is impossible without having your own transportation.

8. Are group rates and student discounts available?

Absolutely, you must remember to bring your student ID to benefit from group and student discounts.

9. What can I expect from the nightlife?

Bars and clubs will go on almost all night. Some close around 2:00am or 3:00am, but many will go on till dawn. Specially this time of year with so many concerts going on.

10. What fun activities can my group do?

Most groups really enjoy taking a couple of days to go to Arenal Volcano for canyoning/ rappelling, zip lining, and hot springs before going to the beach. At the beach you can do ATV four wheeler tours, sport fishing, sailing, scuba dive, snorkel, booze cruise, sunset cruise, white water rafting and much more.
