Samara prices???

I am planning on a last minute trip in June and I am wondering about food and especially beer prices??? I have heard rumours that the prices on liquor and food have gone through the roof in costa rica. Is this true? Can you buy beer in the supermarket?

Yes you can buy beer in many supermarkets... If by "through the roof prices" you mean "less than $1.25 a beer", then yes... through the roof :-)

No worries, beer is one thing that is cheap here.

You can eat great Casados all day long (very complete Costa Rican meal) for under $5.

A good Casado and a Mora en leche...or Papaya en leche...about $ 6.00

and yes you can buy beer at the supermarket!

Was just there and the prices are fine, although the selection is limited. Liked the Pilsen 6.0 the best of the locals. Can find an occasional import, Leffe, Stelle, German or Dutch. but be careful of those since they have been baking in the heat. Can't go wrong with Rum or the local shine if you like mixed drinks.
