The peak season for Camino Travel officially begins on December 21st.
Meanwhile, there’s still plenty of discount promotions and offers your clients can take advantage of.
However, it is important to consider some details regarding the peak season… The great, the boring and the ugly.
Peak Season has a reason to exist: It is the time when many people in the World can and will take vacations. It usually happens between Christmas and New Year’s eve and it means crowds… basically. But it also means that there is the most fantastic weather, the animals are active and moving and the wilderness looks as beautiful as usual.
- Know that you may be in line in certain places in order to get in. If by the beach, our advise is to take water and sunscreen and a lot of patience. (Especially talking about the Manuel Antonio National Park).
- If you are traveling with a tour guide, please ask him/her to make reservations if you are going to any of the most popular restaurants and places.
- If you are traveling in your own car, however, it is important to make sure that all your reservations are confirmed, as well as whenever you are going to a tour with a fixed hour try to be at the place at least 15 minutes before so that you don’t have to delay any group as the peak season, in general terms is clockwork.
- If you are staying in San José, know that on December 26th there is a traditional -and quite big- horse parade and the city main entrances are closed from 10 am to 6 or 7 in the evening. Please ask your hotel staff about the ways to get in and out of the city. If you are arriving that day, please ask our operations staff about routes in the city to your hotel.
- If you are going in a rainforest trail, please be as silent as possible. There will be more people in the trail and the less impact we do the better for all.
- Attractions such as reserves and national parks are less crowded in the afternoons than in the mornings.
