Costa Rica Travel Tips by Chuck’s Surfoutfitters Jun 28

drug-corner-sellersRecently, I was walking back to my rented house here in Jaco and as usual was being harrassed by drug dealers on the street. For the most part, if you can handle the repeated questioning “You need anything, I got what you need,” they will leave you alone. But on this particular night, passing in front of Le Loft in Jaco, a group of college students were askingthe drug dealers what drugs they could get and for how much. I stopped to observe how they drew attention to themselves and were being sized up by street thieves.

Coming to a foreign country for vacation and then buying illegal drugs is insanity. People need to think before they do something that can have extreme consequences. The consequences extend to your friends and family too, not just you. While Costa Rica, is much safer than Mexico for vacation, there still is drug violence. So why invite that violence by conducting yourself in illegal activity? Chuck Herwig has five simple tips for Costa Rica vacation travelers. Take a look at number three.

My Travel Tips for a PURA VIDA Vacation By Chuck Herwig

  1. Please slow down, don’t be in a hurry. You are on vacation
  2. Prepare for a new and exciting/challenging experience. After all, you could have stayed home if you didn’t want something different.
  3. Don’t buy or trade drugs, you just do damage to the local people
  4. Don’t leave anything, anywhere, anytime unattended. Whether its in your car, in the lobby, next to you or the park bench, etc. It will grow legs and walk away
  5. Learn a couple of good words and practice them daily ex Por Favor, Gracias, Pura Vida. Its amazing how fast you will be speaking Spanish.

Jaco Beach Crime Tombstone Style Jan 26

Costa Rica Police StationSo much has been in the news about violence in Mexico tourist towns that there is a heightened awareness of Jaco Beach crime and violence taking place in all tourist locations. As with all advertising driven news organizations, wherever there is drama to reveal that can drum up Neilsen ratings a story will be told. It does not matter if the story is out of context or pigeonholing Jaco is the result. With all of the emails asking about the safety here in Jaco and what the murders in recent weeks have been about, we will try at least to lay it out what is known around town and not in the new media.
