Prostitutes in Costa Rica

girl.jpgLets start this prostitution in Costa Rica post with something a bit light hearted. Did you know the prostitution in Costa Rica is legal, but the pimping of prostitutes is not? Seems ironic doesn’t it? Even more ironic is that escort services are also legal. I guess escort services in Costa Rica really do translate into legal pimping services.

Where to Find Prostitutes

As with any country, there are a number of popular destinations if you feel like indulging in some sexual recreation. Your best bets for finding “quality” prostitutes are to visit the major tourist destinations. If you are too uncomfortable to ask where the prostitutes hang out, just visit a few bars or clubs and look for the one that has the hottest girls. The place with all the hot girls is usually the prostitute hot spot of that city.

If our search still proves to be a challenge, there are a few types of businesses that are know places of prostitution. These business types include:

  • Escort Services
  • Adult Night Clubs
  • Bars
  • Massage Parlors
  • Strip Clubs

One of the most popular hotels for prostitutes is in San Jose. The hotel goes by the name of, The Del Ray Hotel and Casino. This is the most famous brothel in all of Costa Rica and has been around for quite some time. One reason this particular hotel is so popular is that many of the hottest prostitutes in San Jose call this their office. So, if you are in San Jose and looking for some action, check it out. If you want to know a little more about it before you walk in, check out this first hand experience with a prostitute from the Hotel Del Ray.

About the Ladies

These ladies have said “damn the man” in the literal sense of the word. Prostitutes, or “sex workers” as they are sometimes called, work for themselves. Many women work as prostitutes to earn a better income than they would working a 9-5 job. Most women only work a few nights out of the month, and this usually earns them enough to support themselves or family for that entire month.

Women come to Costa Rica from nearby countries such as Columbia, Nicaragua, Argentina, Venezuela, and the Dominican Republic. There are of course an abundance of local Costa Rican Women as well.

No matter what your taste in women is, you can probably find one to suit your fancy. Many women from the South American countries are known throughout the world as being the picture perfect Latin American stereotype. From busty blond’s to petite brunettes, there is a little bit of everything here.

Many of the prostitutes in Costa Rica don’t speak much English, if any. The ones that do will charge top dollar because they can. So, if you want the most for your money, brush up on your Spanish. Even if it’s just a little, it will go a long way when trying to close a deal.

The Legalities

As mentioned before, prostitution is perfectly legal in Costa Rica. It is the act of pimping that is illegal. Aside from the pimp factor, the only major law enforced when it comes to prostitution is sex with minors. Costa Rica has recently created many new laws to eliminate sex with minors and punish those who break this law. The age of consent in the country is 18, and claiming ignorance of the law or the girl’s age won’t help you at all.

Although it is rare to find an underage prostitute, if you do, you are better off moving on to another chica. Many “professionals” will carry around some sort of ID to prove their age, so feel free to ask to see this if you are concerned.

Cost of Prostitutes

As with any product, you get what you pay for. The average Costa Rican prostitute that you can find in bars or clubs will probably cost around US$50 for quick lay. Higher class prostitutes, strippers, or those from upscale clubs can easily cost upwards of US$150. If you are feeling lucky, you can always tempt fate by going after a a girl on the street. These streetwalker girls are usually only US$20 – $30.
