CRBC 10th April - flip flops or walking sandals??

Postby alexgirl » Fri Mar 19, 2010 9:54 am

Hi,

I'm booked on the CRBC departing 10th April and am having a typical female footwear dilemma! Flip flops or walking sandals...which are better for this type of trip?

Also has anyone been in April before, if so, should I expect wet/dry, hot/cold?

Any help on clothing would be greatly appreciated!

Alex

Take both. You're not going to want to hike volcanoes in flip flops.

You'll want the flip flops for using communal showers.

April is typically the hottest and dryest month in Costa Rica, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't expect any rain, so prepare for that too. The central valley and Arenal/Monteverde areas will, in general, be cooler than the Pacific coast (especially Guanacaste region), but that's all relative. I usually bring a light jacket (more for rain than cold) and rarely use it. Bring something that packs small.
