Hi Nicky,

Great to hear that you're getting ready for your upcoming trip to Costa Rica. I would suggest a mixture of both cash and pre-paid card, as some of the places you'll visit are fairly remote and ATM's may not be easy to access. Enjoy Costa Rica!

Hi Nicky,

I am not travelling on this trip but have travelled to Costa Rica independantly many times over the last 10 years and have always just taken dollars cash with no problems at all, they are accepted as payment in all places including the most remote areas. It is also very safe if you exercise common sense. Enjoy your trip it's a fabulous country.


thanks angela....and vicky!  appreciate the feedback.
