On a whim, we’re thinking of heading to Costa Rica. A bit blase, maybe, since it seems like everyone has already been there. Out of the four of us going, though, only one person has been before, so it will be a fun adventure.
So we used kayak.com to get an idea of plane tickets, and then we’ll book them.
I used travel.state.gov to check out visa requirements and travel safety. I messaged a couple people on Facebook asking more specific questions. I looked at frommers.com for general getting-a-sense-of-where-we-are-going tips, and I checked out a few of their hotel recommendations. Finally, I used our friend google.com for other hotel and attractions information.
What sites do you use to plan a trip?
