I am going backpacking in Costa Rica in a couple weeks, and am considering bringing a tent, but I am just worried that it is going to take up too much space in my pack. I have a 5000 cu in backpack, but I will be gone for 3 months, and have a lot of stuff I want to fit in there! Does anyone have any ideas on if it would be worth it to bring a tent like this?
Unless you're sharing your trip (and the weight of the tent) with someone, go with a solo tent. Or, go full jungle-style and get a hammock!
Hey Brian...It depends what you want Ive been in Central America 4 months but I used youth hostel all the time... If you want to camp then all 2 person tent weighs the same now or very close.. Don't forget to go to PArque Nacional Corcovado and do the walk between the Park Ranger Station its a 30 km walk and do the one in the jungle, I regret so much not having done that one as I flew the cessna overlooking the hike I didn't do!!! Have a great trip!
