In November I will be staying for a week in Mal Pais Costa Rica. I am having a terrible time figuring out what to wear and how best to prepare for mosquitos. I will be surfing every day and making only one or two excursions (ATV, zipline etc.). I will be eating dinners in restaurants each night.
Firstly, do I need many sweaters and sweatshirts for the evenings? How warm of a jacket or none at all? Should my husband bring multiple pairs of long pants? Etc. And are sneakers good enough, or must we bring hiking boots?
Secondly, I hate the idea of deet, but is it necessary there? Anyone know what's used locally there? Thanks so much!
