How to survive the flight to Jaco?
If you’re poorly prepared, airports and flying can be a real challenge. But there’s no need to hit the panic button just yet. Follow these handy tips and enjoy a hassle-free start to your time in Jaco.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • A plane ride can be a cruisy experience if you take the right stuff. Firstly, you’ll want a few basic toiletry items, such as deodorant and a toothbrush, a spare change of clothes and a good book. Secondly, find room in your carry-on bag for your electronic devices, chargers, medications and maybe a neck pillow too. Last, but definitely not least, don’t forget to take your passport, travel papers and some cash.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of banned items differs between air carriers, the general rule to follow is avoid carrying anything sharp, flammable or explosive. This includes screwdrivers, pocket knives, spray paint and flares. Sports equipment like golf clubs, and items that could harm other people, such as swords and batons, can’t come on board with you either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The main aim is to be as comfortable as possible. Dress in loose, natural fibers and don’t forget to pack a sweater in case it gets cool in the cabin. Always opt for well-fitting, flat shoes as your feet may swell during the flight. Leave the stilettos and heavy boots in your luggage.
  • Caused by sustained periods of immobility, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clotting condition that can affect passengers during long flights. The good news is there are numerous ways to significantly reduce the risk of developing it. Drink plenty of water, wander through the cabin wherever possible and wear compression socks or tights.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Jaco?
Being prepared before your flight will help make your trip to Jaco a piece of cake. Check out our handy hints for a swift journey past security:

  • Security personnel first need to check that you have a valid ID and boarding pass before you’re allowed to proceed any further. Keep them within easy reach.
  • Next up is the X-ray machine. Remove anything metal on you that is likely to beep. This includes items like earphones or headphones, as well as heavy jackets or coats. They’ll need to be placed on the conveyor belt for screening.
  • For just a few moments, you’ll need to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, laptop and any other electronics must also be sent through the scanner.
  • Remove all gels and liquids from your carry-on bag. They often need to be sent through the X-ray separately. Each item should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a sensible footwear choice as you’re less likely to be asked to remove them when going through security. Hiking boots and other bulky shoes are often subjected to additional screening.
  • Sharp or pointed items are prohibited in the cabin. They’ll be seized at security, so pack them in your checked luggage.
