Apparently, prior to my visit to Costa Rica I will acquire a valid passport from the concerned authorities. I will undertake all the required procedures that include undertaking at the embassy in the consular section. Apparently, considering that the procedure of acquiring a visa normally requires one to have valid identity documents such as National Identification document and a birth certificate I will assemble all that is required prior to the visit.

The above imply that, my travel to Costa Rica will be an easy task to accomplish considering that my reason for travelling is well defined while my passport is valid for a length exceeding the minimum requirements.
My travel destination in Costa Rica is Manuel Antonio. I chose Manuel Antonio, essentially because it offers a wide range of utilities that concur with my purpose of travel. The aforementioned destination offer tourist with an amazing world calls beaches, astounding views of Pacific Ocean, local and international meals, and the national park. To ensure that my stay at Costa Rica will be of paramount successful in the aftermath, my itinerary plan will entail taking the earliest direct flight to Juan Santamaria International Airport (San Jose, Costa Rica). After arriving at Juan Santamaria International Airport, I will spend the night in a hotel booked for me by the American Airlines Agency Reference. Considering that Manuel Antonio National Park is 132 kilometres from San Jose, I will use a vehicle with the main reason being to observe the culture and norms of the Costa Rican people as I travel. Owing the fact that the time of travel using a vehicle from San Jose to Manuel Antonio National Park is approximately 2-4 hours, I will utilize this time by taking notes of what I observe for future reference. Subsequent to my arrival at Manuel Antonio National Park the next day of stay, I will to the national park and later go enjoy the amazing scenery and amenities offered by the beach at Manuel Antonio. In the next which is my third day at Costa Rica, I will visit the locals to learn more about their ethnicity, language, and culture. I will visit various villages and communities to ensure that I gain deep insights regarding the aforementioned. In my fourth day, I will take a hired vehicle to San Jose and later take a flight back home booked for me by the travel agency.
In a nutshell, my trip to Costa Rica will be educative and adventurous at the same time. Owing the fact that I have never been to Costa Rica, I aspire to learn a lot about their culture, language and the comprehensive culture. I will learn more about their wild life and the landscape as well. The trip will be successful owing the well-developed plan as aforementioned herein.
