About Mercedes

Mercedes, a small city located at the Province of Heredia in Costa Rica is a good destination if you’re through exploring all the major cities and tourist hotspots in the country. A community producing textiles and local foods, Mercedes is not a major player in terms of tourism in Costa Rica but it’s still located in the bustling province of Heredia and therefore merits a visit.

If you take cheap flights to Mercedes, you can hide in its quiet surrounding and forget your worries for a while. You can walk the streets and wander around the city to find something of interest. You can also mingle with the local residents and learn about their culture, beliefs and traditions.

Mercedes is a relatively safe city but like in other places, untoward incidents are also happening. To stay safe, travelers taking cheap flights to Mercedes and other major areas in Costa Rica need to keep these few precautions in mind.

    • Walking alone in the dark is very dangerous especially to foreign women. It is advisable to ride public transport or walk in groups whenever you need to go out instead of braving the night alone.

    • Keep a vigilant eye for robbers who may be lurking the streets at night. Bus stops are the favorite locations of snatchers, pickpockets and robbers so make sure to stay alert at all times.

    • Avoid parking your car in dark places. Whenever you need to pull over make sure to do it at a well-lit place.

    • Avoid hiking alone especially if you’re not familiar with the place. It is advisable to hike with a group of people to have someone watching your back.

    • Always keep your cash, passport and other important documents near you. A money belt strapped to your body is one of the best ways to take care of your documents.

    • And lastly, keep from wearing flashy jewelries especially if you plan to explore any place on foot to avoid unwanted attention from criminals. Keep your clothes modest and comfortable and avoid wearing uncomfortable heels.

Since it is not a major city you will not be able to find good hotels in Mercedes so unless you find a nice local resident who will be willing to share the house with you, you may have to find a suitable accommodation in Heredia or in other major cities.
