Plan For Your Journey
Prepare to Travel
Do I need a passport or a visa to travel to Costa Rica?
All Canadian, US and EU citizens who travel to Costa Rica for tourism and pleasure purposes need a valid passport. Please check your passport to make sure you have at least 6 months validity from the time you enter Costa Rica. If it is not, you should get your passport renewed before you come to Tambor. A visa is not required.
Is there a departure tax when leaving Costa Rica?
When you leave Costa Rica, you will have to pay a departure tax of $29 USD. It must be paid at Juan Santamaria International Airport before going through airport security. The tax is payable in either colones, U.S. dollars, or with Visa/Mastercard.
Staying In San Jose?
We encourage you to plan a night or two in San Jose when traveling to Tambor. There are so many things to do, and really great places to stay. Stop rushing, get out, and explore Costa Rica on your way to to the resort.
