We are going on a March 11 Costa Rica trip. Can someone tell me what extra things - above and beyond the normal set like insect repellant - that would be useful? In particular, is it necessary to bring a pair of hiking boots? Thanks.

you don't even need insect repellent.  One set of boots is all needed.  It's a very tourist forward country.

  I used insect repellent once or twice but bugs were not a major issue.  I did not bring hiking boots and never felt like I needed them.  Our tour was on a mid-sized bus a lot (over winding, dirt roads).  So bring anything that might make the bus trips more comfortable.  Also bring a swim suit and binoculars.  I can't think of anything else.
Enjoy, Roving Mike
