converter and present for host family

Hi all: My daughter is traveling to Costa Rica next week to do a community service project. She will be living with a local family. Any suggestions as to what type of gift she can bring them. Also what type of converter is necessary for the electricity there. We are from the states. Thanks for the help! Sherry

1. Re: converter and present for host family

I lived with a tico family last year. I gave them chocolates and a bottle of wine. The chocolates were the Lindt truffles. I gave them to the family right away and told them put in fridge. The chocolates were fine. Never needed a converter in CR. I went all over and used my electronics from the usa.
