"1. petty theft: its like any..." Thieves & Pickpockets Tip by kingdj

Thieves & Pickpockets, Costa Rica: 25 reviews and 13 photos

1. petty theft: its like any tourist place be very overly careful with your valuable things on the beach, in the rental car because they will disappear. So dont let yourself be a victim, we saw many stupid tourists acting very careless. The locals blame the wetback panamanians and nicas but it doesnt matter if something of yours is stolen. Many people are extremely poor (ie the shacks in the dirt) so we seem really rich to them with all our toys.

2. Warning: this country and people are extremely addictive. Chances are very good you will return and maybe you will want to hang here for an extended period, maybe forever. It already too late for me.
