Costa Rica News – So your husband or boyfriend is taking a “guys” trip to Costa Rica to go sportfishing in Jaco or play some golf on one of the courses located near San Jose. Should you be suspicious?Probably.
Most people who travel a bit and read the news are well aware of the legal prostitution that is found in Costa Rica. While Costa Rica isn’t extremely convenient to travel to from Canada or the U.S., it is close enough to make the cheater take those risky trips to get some fulfillment of the sexual kind.
Costa Rica makes it extremely easy for men to ‘hook up’. There is the infamous Del Rey Hotel, now with two locations for your sexual pleasure, countless women who hang out in bars and clubs, and although ‘illegal’ there are plenty of pimps out there to help you get fulfilled. Unfortunately for many wives and girlfriends in the States or Canada, when your significant other tells you he is doing a ‘fishing trip’ in Costa Rica, you can bet that his fishing expedition is not for sea creatures. As www.willspy.com (a local private detective agency) states on their website, “There are multiple places here in Costa Rica where a man can have his picture taken standing beside a beautiful, 8 foot, hanging Blue Marlin, with a Rod/Reel in hand, with him smiling brightly as if he spent the day (and his money) fishing…don’t believe it. Even if that may have been his intent, the temptation is very strong in Costa Rica.” You can say that again – the temptation is very strong in Costa Rica because Women-Willing-To-Do-Whatever-You-Want-As-Long-As-You-Pay-Them-For-It saturates the entire country. The website also goes on to say that “Ladies here are heart-stopping, drop-dead gorgeous and the finer ones speak excellent English, but they are all out to scam gringos….”
Cheating is all the more likely if the two of you have had marital problems and are no longer intimate. Sexual desire does not dissipate in an unhappy marriage. It may stay stagnant for a while but eventually will be re-channeled towards another attractive or available person. Suppressed sexual desire can be even more intense than a person’s natural libido.
Below is a chart of interesting cheater statistics based on U.S. data.

While women are also likely to cheat, it isn’t on the same level in Costa Rica as it is with men. The industry has become a man’s private Disney World here.
In Doug Smith’s (WillSpy) latest case, he was hired to track Dr. Edwin Tavarez, an anesthesiologist, based out of the north east USA. During the first few days of his trip to Costa Rica, it was the normal vacation as they took day trips and stayed at the Marriott Hotel near the San Jose airport. However, on day 4 Dr. Tavarez decided to partake in some fun with a local prostitute that was being pimped. The following was a tale of events that night.
- At 19:56: subject was alone at the hotel bar located on the lobby floor checking his cell phone.
- At 20:37 a guy (pimp) came with a young blonde girl, red shirt, blue jeans and jacket and talked to him.
- Both introduced to him, the supposed pimp talked with his working girl about she will call him after she was finished, that he hopes they (working girl and subject) could get along and hoped he “had a good time”.
- Pimp leaves at 20:40.
- Working girl and subject talked a little bit about where is he from, what places has he visited, etc.
- Subject ask working girl to go to his room at 20:46
Dr. Edwin Tavarez would then return home to find out his wife knew about everything he did and that he was banned from returning to the house he used to call home by a court order. We can only hope he did not bring anything else back with him with which his patients can come in contact.
Unfortunately for the cheating boyfriends or husbands, there is significant risk of getting caught, being scammed, and we haven’t even touched on the STD’s available in lots of different varieties that you can bring home to your SO (Significant Other), so let’s look at those for a moment, shall we?
Costa Rica Sex Health Facts August 2005 (most recent data found) “In Costa Rica there are more or less 8,750 women who dedicate themselves to sex work”, said Dr. Sol Chavarr Aguiar, who is the coordinator of the HIV program of the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS). He also stated that 2,700 women are currently being treated for HIV at the Centro de prevencion y control de infecciones de transmision sexual or the I.T.S. Drilling down on these statistics, studies by the Centro shows that: out of every 100 FEMALE sex workers, 6 have Syphilis and 1 is HIV positive. So between the disease, trafficking, and spending the dinero, I wouldn’t.” Don’t forget about the distant cousins of these viruses known as Herpes, Chlamydia, Genital Warts, and last but not least, Gonorrhea.
So, men, if it is worth the risk, then have a lovely time when you come down to Costa Rica.
