  Money and what to expect:
 
For the most part U.S. Dollars are excepted at many places in Costa Rica and you can check the exchange rates here. Please keep in mind that the rates displayed here are buy rates and are a little lower than what you can get at resorts, stores and restaurants, most of the time. It is almost always a better exchange rate away from the airport. The exchange both is there to make money not just as a service so the buy rate is as good as you can expect from them. When you pay for things in Dollars expect Colones for your change.
 
Most  people here are honest but it never hurts to understand things up front and to be aware that there are crooks here just like every other country in the world. So be alert and your less likely to get hurt! Knowledge is a good thing to have!
 

The money used in Costa Rica are Colones and the name refers to Christopher Columbus being the discoverer of Costa Rica.
