Yes, we have snakes, and lots of them, some extraordinarily beautiful. The most dangerous is the bushmaster, which is very common in the sugar cane fields. Fatalities from a snake bite for ANYONE in Costa Rica is extremely uncommon. LOCALS and TOURISTS killed in CAR ACCIDENTS is a lot more common! The most dangerous activity undertaken by this, and most, adventure companies in Costa Rica is to drive on the public roads, especially at night, in the fog, with no yellow lines or white lines, no place to pull off, with nothing to mark huge potholes that might have formed the last time it rained. Snakes hardly rank in comparison.
