You may get your own local phone number while visiting Costa Rica, and saving lots of money while being always reachable to your relatives and friends. Simple make sure that your mobile phone is set at open, and allows chip card inserts. Before you leave the custom area at the airport, there is an ICE (Government-run electricity company) shop where you can purchase the local phone number and chip card. YOu simple insert into your phone, and you are ready to go!!!! You can add minutes to the number by buying minute cards at almost any supermarket.

I first came to Costa Rica in 1998. I fell in love with the country right away for so many reasons. I have been coming, living and unfortunately never staying off and on since.
