Duty free in Golfito for foreigners

I'm living in Puerto Jimenez for a few months and have heard that in Golfito there is a duty free area of shops. I've heard conflicting info on whether the duty free applies to foreigner or not? Some people say this is only for Costa Rican nationals. Is this the case?

Here is some great information about it, no you do not have to be a "national" to shop there: golfito-costarica.com/golfito/dutyfreeshoppi…

you can get from pt jimenez to golfito by taxiboat as well, maybe about a half hour ride vs 2 or 3 hours by road.
