Costa Rica News – Having visited and lived the Jaco/Hermosa area of Costa Rica for a little over 3 months, it is quite the change from the quiet, conservative town of Heredia. I spoke to a local once and I asked him where you find a normal girl in Jaco. He replied with, “in jaco their are gringas and putas, there is nothing in between.” What he was saying was the local ticas all work as prostitutes and then there are the white tourists. This of course is not true, although walking around in Jaco after 10 pm you might believe him.
Although the Costa Rican government does not want anyone to promote it or talk about it, sex and sex tourism in Costa Rica are huge money makers. The average salary for a female college graduate in Costa Rica is close to $600 a month. Many prostitutes in Costa Rica make that in one day. Being that about 20% of Costa Rican women have at least one child by the time they turn 19 this industry offers a way to support their child.
It’s easier in Costa Rica than in North America to find a partner and have sex. In fact, you can pay for it directly because prostitution is legal. You may prefer to find a real partner through mainstream ways. Whichever you are looking for, know that here both genders go out looking for sex. Costa Ricans are more open to girls chasing guys as well as homosexual hookups.
Near the Del Rey Hotel you will find hundreds of people providing sexual services to buy. You can also find this in massage parlors and nightclubs like Tango India, De Pelufos, and Pirate Club. One that caters to the gay scene is Club Oh. Solicitation on the street is illegal, the only people you will find taking this risk are transexual workers, because they are not allowed in many places. If that is what you are looking for try the Parque Morazan or Clinica Biblica areas.
Prices are usually negotiable. Ask around for the normal price. There are usually rooms in the back or upstairs at clubs. You can also pay more to take someone out with you. Be aware of dangerous areas, keep your eyes open, and never leave a sex worker alone with your things. 1 in every 100 sex workers carries HIV. Always use protection.
Outside of San Jose, Jaco Beach is the largest destination to hire someone for sex. Try the Jungle Bar, Copacabana Hotel, of Hotel Cocal. During the day you can find this type of action at the El Bohio Bar and Claritas Beachfront Bar.
The women you will find in this work in Costa Rica are from all over Latin America. Most are from Nicaragua and Colombia. There are darker skinned workers from the Caribbean and lighter skinned ones from South America.
If you have moderate good looks and at least a decent and half alive personality you shouldn’t bother paying for sex. Go out at night and you will be surprised that it’s not a huge challenge to find a free one night stand. Clubbing options in San Jose include Club Vertigo, Castro’s Bar and Disco, Mundoloco Bar, and El Pueblo. These bars will have loud music so skip talking and just dance. If you have a chance to talk, most people will be able to speak some English because these are places for the middle and upper class.
If you are looking for more than a hookup, it’s certainly possible. Many married couples are one Costa Rican and one foreigner. Don’t fall for a prostitute or put your money, business, or house in the name of your new found love. Spend time and be smart. Date people you meet in nice places until you find a compatible one.
If you want sex it is not hard to find in Costa Rica and dating a woman that works in the industry can have it benefits.
Thought we would add this at the end for humor purposes…….if you do not find it funny, I do not really care
10 Benefits of Dating a Costa Rican Prostitute
1. They normally have money due to the fact that is one of the highest paying jobs in Costa Rica. They can treat you to dinner sometimes.
2. Experience in bed. This can be good and bad for some people, But I think if she stays with you after all the men she has been with that is a pretty good sign that you can hold your own.
3. All sex and relationships requires spending money, whether you are paying for dinners, buying clothes, or just buying drinks at a bar. If you look at in this way, it makes you think.
4. They are normally pretty horny. Most guys will understand if you go a long time without sex then it gets easier to be without it. If you have sex everyday then if you go without it for a a few days it is a lot harder.
5. Her friends. Have you ever spent an afternoon at Hotel Cocal. They all know each other and most are drop dead gorgeous.
6. Very loving. Although most prostitutes in Costa Rica have mastered the art of making a man feel like he is a Don Juan, that attitude normally transfers into a relationship. It might be a little fake but you still feel good.
7. They do not put up with BS. I like when women do not play games and most of these women will tell you straight about what they are feeling.
8. Their business is their business. They are going to make sure they are looking and smelling good below.
9. Many get tested. Because they have sex daily many get tested for STDs on a normal basis. You have a good chance of catching something hooking up at a random bar as well as with a prostitute.
10. They work weekends. This normally gives you Saturdays and Sundays free to hang out with friends, watch football, or jut take a nap.
