Question

Are Major Credit Cards Accepted?

Answer

Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted in Costa Rica. A much smaller percentage of businesses accept American Express or Discover. You should contact your credit card company or bank prior to visiting Costa Rica as they may place a security block for unusual foreign transaction if not. Some credit card companies will charge a 1 – 2% international transaction fee. You can often avoid this by changing your plan in advance or using a different credit card that does not charge foreign transaction fees . ATM machines are available in most towns. You will have to contact your bank in advance as not all ATM cards are set up for foreign transactions. Similar to credit cards, there is a chance you could be charged a foreign transaction fee.

Question

Where can I buy groceries and alcohol?

Answer

Mas x Menos, translated as “More for Less” and pronounced as “mas por menos”, is located on the main road of Jaco Beach. It is a clean and organized grocery store complete with everything you may need, from groceries to supplies. This complete grocery store has a meat deli, bakery, and wine and alcohol section. They also have a vast supply of fresh fruits and vegetables. While alcohol is available at grocery stores, we suggest stopping at the duty-free shop at SJO airport, which is located right before baggage claim. Alcohol is more affordable at the duty-free shop.
