Cost of living in Costa Rica

Lots of good eating ahead

I just returned from a trip to the grocery store.  On the way, I passed one of the many roadside vendors selling freshly picked produce.  This vendor’s pick-up truck – loaded to over flowing with vegetables – was too much to resist.  I stopped and bought 4 cantaloupe, 2 large avocados, 10 huge tomatoes and 8 mangos for ………. eight dollars!  I’ll make guacamole, for sure, but what to do with the tomatoes is up for grabs.  Pico de gallo, pasta sauce or gazpacho?

  1. There are two economies in Costa Rica, the Tico economy and the Gringo economy. Prices don’t rise quite so fast for Ticos.
