When you come visit Costa Rica, as well as any other country, you should be aware of the services that the country offers. Since San Jose is the capital city, most of the services are available than in other provinces.
If you have to make important transactions, money, bank account, credit or debit cards consultations, there is a wide variety of banks and ATM’s that you can easily reach almost everywhere. Of course, be aware that not every place might accept debit or credit cards, and instead rather cash. This happens to small businesses that come farther from the city.
As a tourist in a foreign country, it is also important, depending on the time of your stay, to check out for consulates and embasssies, their locations, addresses and times of attention to the public. Chaeck out the details for some of the services that the United States Embassy provides.
And, since it is almost impossible to predict an accident or any type of flu or disease, or simple because of precaution, check out the Health care and Public Services, that are spread throughout San Jose, just in case you might need them, or are interested in visiting Costa Rica for the use of these services with very comfortable prices.
