Let’s Practice Safe Hiking in the Costa Rican Mountains

Updated: Apr 27, 2023

Do you carry the adventure gene? Hiking is one of the most popular activities for those who

wish to see places surrounded by nature and adventure. Practice this activity safely with

these tips.

Hiking is an activity that clears your mind while you exercise and connect with nature.

Doing it safely is not difficult, but following these tips is key to your well-being and that of

your mates.

What to Pack?

A basic principle of hiking is to be prepared for everything. Make sure to dress comfortably

with appropriate footwear and accessories to protect you from the mountain’s climate.

Prepare a first-aid kit, water, and snacks, and if you are trekking through high mountains it might be useful to have a rope in case of an emergency.


To plan an ideal route, take different factors into account such as the weather and the

experience your fellow travelers have had. In addition, we recommend starting your journey

early in the morning.

Other Recommendations

Do not lose sight of your travel companions and be aware of their condition. Under no

circumstances should anyone be separated from the group. A mapped-out route can be a

big help as a reference that you are going down the right path. If needed, choose a shorter

route or opt to come back another day.
