Health risks for someone from the U.S. Basically you need to be up-to-date on your shots but you have to look out for, yellow fever, hepatitis A & B, rabies, and typhoid. Get shot for all of these problems. Schedule a doctor’s appointment 4 to 6 weeks before making trip. Literacy rate 87% compared to the U.S 99% Primary modes of transportation Mostly walking but they do have tourist cars/taxi . They speak mostly Spanish so if you don’t know the language if could be hard. Which can make directions hard to read and they have mostly unpaved highways (49,344 km)
