Prostitution in Costa Rica
is both abundant and legal. Unlike the US where
the government decides career choices for its
citizens rather than letting the citizens decide
for themselves, the Costa Rican ladies are free
to offer their services of sex, as long as it
is not part of a pimping type situation which
is illegal in Costa Rica.
Most ladies of the night in Costa Rica are there
to better their economic situations and care for
their families. Some will work only a few days
per month, while others make it a career choice.
You will find women from Nicaragua, Argentina,
Venezuela, Columbia, and Dominican Republic and
of course local girls or Ticas. Light skin, dark
skin and everything in between. There are 4 sources
of women: escort services, bars, adult night clubs,
and massage parlors.
Prostitution in Costa Rica
is legal - though pimping and the prostitution
of minors under 18 is not, even though it is primarily
catholic country. In the U.S. mainly, sex workers
(we prefer the use this term rather than prostitutes)
have a negative connotation, whether it be streetwalkers,
massage girls or escorts. In Costa Rica all Costa
Ricans of age will carry a "cedula with her
picture and birth date. For foreigners i.e. Nicaraguans,
Panamanians, etc. ask to see her passport.
Note that prostitution
with a minor is illegal and the Costa Rican government
under pressure from the US has announced new policies
to strictly and severely punish those that practice
this form of behavior. While the chances of finding
an underage prostitute are rare, if you happen
to come across one, it's in your best interest
to move on to someone else.
What to expect
For the most part, the ladies
of the night are very professional which means
you get right down to business when they come
to your room and once paid, they are out the door.
The Costa Rican women are passionate in bed and
will put on a fairly good performance. Most if
not all will insist on condom usage, which is
a good idea. Don't expect to fall in love or find
a girlfriend or wife out of the bar girls. You
will not find a bustling nightlife like you would
in Bangkok, but there are enough places (bars,
strip joints, massage parlors, and free lancers)
to keep a single man happy. Certainly, if you
come to Costa Rica, you can expect to have no
problems getting laid 7 days a week, 365 days
a year. Sex is both legal and quite available
in Costa Rica.
You can find all types of
women in Costa Rica. Besides Costa Ricans, or
Ticas as they are called, you will find Filipinas,
Russians and other Europeans.
Sex tours are illegal, escort services can be
dodgy and not recommended. It is hard to get a
girl out of a high class topless bar for less
than $300. "$50 for a quick lay" --
an hour in some places; a quick lay costs more
like $13.15 right now. Ok, precisly$13.15.
Colombianas and other South Americans are more
likely to speak English than Ticas or Nicas. And
the local independent contractors who learn English
do so for one reason only: so they can work the
high-priced ($100) gringo bars.
Costa Rican women
come in all shapes and sizes and can range anywhere
from busty blondes to petite brunettes. You will
find girls with blue, brown, and green eyes. Some
dye their hair blonde to attract more attention.
Few Costa Rica women speak English well, so a
brush up in your Spanish before you arrive will
make conversation with the fine ladies go a long
The price for sex varies from
girl to girl, but the average cost for a hooker
out of the bars is about $50 for a quick lay.
This price can double or triple if you take a
girl out of the strip clubs or higher class bars.
A street girl may go with you for as little as
$20 to $30.
