Don't camp in the rainy season !!
And the night shall be filled with music, and the cares that infest the day, shall fold their tents like the Arabs, and as silently steal away. ~ The Day is Done, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1807-1882A If you like to commune with nature up close and personal, try a stay at one of Costa Rica’s small selection of private sites. Also, a fair number of the national parks provide rustic campgrounds; their fee is around US $2 per night, plus the $6 park entrance fee. Most campsites provide potable water; we recommend taking your own bottled water just to make sure. Showers and restrooms usually are included, and occasionally you’ll have access to a public phone.
Some sites, however, can be less than basic and you may have to scrounge around for facilities. Remember not to leave valuables in your tent unless there is someone around to protect them. Lastly, you may find it more enjoyable to choose the dry season for your trip because camping during the rainy season can be a muddy affair.
