Known for their generosity of heart and friendly nature, the people of Costa Rica – who call themselves Ticos – are one of the country’s national treasures.
Once you step foot in Costa Rica, you’ll understand the meaning of this national motto. Much more than “pure life,” Pura Vida is a state of mind – an appreciation of life’s simple pleasures. Thanks, in part to this Pura Vida, Costa Rica is consistently ranked one of the world’s “Happiest Countries”.
The standard in Costa Rica is the same as in the United States: 110 volts AC (60 cycles). Some electric outlets only have 2 prong sockets, so an adapter may be needed for 3 prong plugs.
Costa Rica has an excellent phone system, and the country code for dialing is 506. Check with your cell phone provider for international data and voice plans and costs.
Many resorts and restaurants offer WiFi.
Although the water in Costa Rica is generally safe to drink, water quality varies in some cities. It would be best to use bottled water and avoid ice.
Spanish is the official language of Costa Rica, but English is widely spoken. The Costa Rican currency is called the “colon”. Check the current exchange rate here. Many businesses will accept U.S. Dollars and major credit cards are widely accepted.
Costa Rica is on Central Standard Time, 6 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (-6 GMT). Costa Rica does not use daylight saving time, so the time difference is an additional hour April through October.
