  • Tipping

    Fortuna Local Customs

    While traveling in Costa Rica it is law to tip 10% of the bill (in restaurants for example). For the most part this is included because it is law, but sometimes it isn't so make sure to ask. If the service was particularly good you should leave an extra 5%-10% of the total.

  • Oxcarts

    Sarchí Local Customs

    In Sarchí and on the outskirts of San Jose, you may oxcart drivers. These people only drive the oxcart for tourists and want money for a photo. So just note if you see an oxcart driver with the oxen/cows/donkeys and all that you will have to pay about 100-200 Colones for a photo.

  • Fresh coconut water

    Fortuna Local Customs

    You can't get any fresher than coconut water right from the coconut. Locals sell these coconuts along side the roads right out of their car or van. They keep the coconuts on ice and partially cut but still sealed. After your purchase, they chop the end perfectly and give you a straw. Very refreshing! All the locals I've seen selling these coconuts...
