I am going Costa Rica and wondering if it is safe to take a DSLR or is it better to just take a cheaper camera

I take my dslr everywhere I go. I've never had a problem yet. Just use common sense and you'll be fine.

yep - take it - but make sure you are insured for it. Take out the SD card when you need to leave it anywhere so you dont lose your pics if it does go - the pics of course are irreplaceable and priceless - not the camera

I had a great time in Costa Rica on a Eco tour and spent the 2nd week on my own, snapping flicks. Treveled by bus, ferry and small plane. There is lots of open country and people are very friendly. Good advice on removing SD card by other poster. Its all about the flicks !!
I leave in 3 weeks for Vietnam and using a Olympus E-520 and Olympus Sylus for my pocket.
Enjoy !
