when we were there, there was only one hotel that had internet access, so it is very expensive. The connection is fast, so you no delays there. But it tend to disconnect often.
Unique Suggestions: Make it short
Fun Alternatives: Ok, you are on a holiday, so how much do you really need internet??? You really need it to have fun?? To enjoy the beautifull weather???, To relax???? No I don't think so, so go there once, let people home know you got there save, and then for once, have a life.
There is NO bank in Monte Rico, so make sure you have enough money with you to last the whole holiday and get you away again. A few banks will change US dollars, for a bad rate, but travelers checks are a big NO.
You can get to the mainland to change money, but it will be a waste of your day.
So make sure you cash in before you come.
