Road trip safety

StollFamily asked 8 years ago

First off, my wife Julie and I enjoy your blog. She bought me the “Two Weeks in Costa Rica” book, which I also enjoyed.  We spent our honeymoon in Costa Rica in 2000 and have longed to get back. Our kids (12 & 14) are at the right age to go on an adventurous vacation, so we are planning an extended driving tour of Costa Rica for June 2016. We have read in several different blogs and articles not to leave anything in your vehicle because of thieves. My wife is very concerned because of the amount of luggage we would need for a two to three week trip, and the fact that we will be on the road much of that time exploring. Can you assuage her fears, or is she rightfully concerned?
