The poor man's umbrella

They say pack an umbrella or poncho when touring Costa Rica. True, it rains regardless of the time of the year. If you plan to visit during off peak season, remember Mother Nature will not spare you from  her unpredictable showers. Hence, the lush forests and sometimes unwelcome humidity.

But take heart. Costa Rica truly offers the best of all worlds. If you forgot to bring your essentials, you could always take cover under the gunnera insignis - a gigantic rhubarb Ticos call the "poor man's umbrella." Now you're all set.
