Costa Rica News – Well for all those people that went to the beach or other vacation areas around Costa Rica and spent all your money on your trip instead of paying your marchamo it might come back and bite you in the ass as you head home with your family or hung over with your friends.
Either you will get fined for not having your marchamo up to date by the December 31st deadline or you will have to bribe an officer to let you go with a warning. If the police is caught he only gets 3 months paid suspension so he will most likely accept the extra cash.
300 traffic officers will be engaged in monitoring the return of tourists to the Central Valley from their Christmas trips and weekend trips.
The main objectives are to verify that vehicles are equipped with the 2013 Marchamo, not travelling at high speeds, and the driver is not intoxicated.
