Living in the Tropics

  1. COVID is in Costa Rica but, at this time, it is not on the Osa Peninsula where Iguana Lodge is.
  2. Costa Rica has been doing a great job of dealing with the virus.  Costa Rica has been aggressive, responsive, and transparent in testing and fighting COVID.  They are doing significantly better than their neighbors and the United States.
  3. Iguana Lodge follows if not exceeds all Costa Rican health directives to minimize exposure to its guests, workers, and those in the community to COVID.
  4. Costa Rica now requires that you have travelers insurance to cover you if you have COVID ( $50,000 max) or have an extended stay because of COVID ($2000 max)  This policy can be bought in Costa Rica or by outside insurance provider.    

Getting Around

The Little Stuff

Little stuff

  1. Spanish is the main language of Costa Rica but many Tico’s speak some English.
  2. The Costa Rican colones is the currency but dollars are equally accepted throughout the country.  Everyone seems to the know the exchange rates.  Credit cards are widely accepted.
  3. There are two banks in Puerto Jimenez. Both with ATM’s.  You can also go into the bank and get cash against your credit card.
  4. Electricity is the same as in the USA.  120/240 volts 60 hertz.  The plugs are generally US style.
  5. Costa Rica has a national water system and water is considered potable from the tap unless otherwise indicated.
  6. When you enter Costa Rica you will get a tourist visa. Generally, this is for 90 days but there are a few countries that are allowed less time.  You can renew your tourist visa by crossing the border into Panama and then returning.  This takes about 1/2 day to do if you are getting close to the end of your visa.
