This is not much a question as a statement but I had to voice it somewhere. I have been to this country maybe 15 different times and the last was about 4 years ago. I love the people....I love the beautiful landscape and the beaches but this last trip really opened my eyes to a whole new CR.
I come here to work so I remember exactly what the costs are so I can bid my contract and make a few dollars. I stayed at a Holiday Inn so no problem there because I knew the cost before I arrived but when I had my first luch at the Dennys across the street I couldn't believe it. I oredered a small sandwich, salad, piece of cake and an iced tea and the bill was $32.00. WHAT!!!! This was not only the time I really got screwed---The taxis are now so expensive--$52.00 one way to downtown from the airport. REALLY!!!! I actually feel worse for the citizens with the increase of all goods and they making the same money. The tourists are really getting the shaft. EVERYTHING HERE IN VERY EXPENSIVE SO BRING TONS OF CASH --- YOU WILL NEED IT!
