“I want to move to Costa Rica…because of the girls” – A guy I met on the streets of Medellin
Every day, hundreds of men from the USA, Europe and other parts of the world land at Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Santamaria. Yep, that’s a long-ass name for an airport. But who cares?
There’s only one thing these men care about: Costa Rican women.
Are you one of them?
You can admit it. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. You’re a man and you want to meet sexy Costa Rican girls online, in the capital, and at the beach. Welcome to the club.
I’ve written this article for YOU because…
I have to warn you though. You’re about to read a long dating guide. Yes, you can skim it. But if you’re serious about meeting and dating beautiful light-skinned Latinas, finding a girlfriend, or meeting your future bride, you should take your time.
What if you’re looking for prostitutes?
Looking for Costa Rican Prostitutes? This is NOT for You,
Prostitution is legal in Costa Rica, just like in Germany.
This article is NOT for men who are looking for hookers.
Sorry, but I’m not an advocate of pay for play. The Global Seducer community is for self-improvement addicts, adventurers, and lovers of women…not for sex tourists.
Head over to the Craigslist Personals if you’re looking for prostitutes. Continue reading this article if you’re looking for a dating adventure, a girlfriend, or a wife. It’s that simple.
Qualities of the Costa Rican Girls You are Looking For
You are still here. Awesome!
This means that you are looking for good girls who want to meet YOU and not your wallet. And believe me. You can meet thousands of women in Costa Rica who are not working in the Hotel Del Rey in San José.
I’m sure that at least one of them is just your type.
The Girls of Costa Rica Come in All Shapes and Colors
You want to meet Costa Rican models with light skin and feminine curves?
You’ll find the perfect girl in this country because 83.6% of the population is either white or mestizo.
What if you’re into dark-skinned girls?
No worries. 6.7% of the girls you can meet online are mulatto, 2.4% are indigenous, and 1.1% are African. Okay, I have to admit it. It’s way easier to find a dark-skinned Latina in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, or in Brazil.
But anyway, you have the choice. Yes, even if you don’t speak Spanish.
You’ll Understand the Women in Costa Rica Better than Your Ex
…at least if you’re ex-girlfriend is South American.
There’s a reason why so many men are retiring in Costa Rica and not in Colombia:
Ticas speak English.
You don’t believe me? Then check the official English proficiency Index. I couldn’t find one South American country where English is more common. In fact, I still remember the day I checked into my hotel in San José.
Everyone spoke English…even the girl on my first date.
Costa Rican Girlfriends Show Their Affections
What if you meet a girl and you really like her?
You want to hug her, you want to kiss her, and you want to…okay. You know where this going. But I’m serious. You can hug her and you can kiss her. It doesn’t matter if you’re in your apartment or on the street.
Ticas in Costa Rica are totally cool about showing affection in public.
I’ve seen local couples swallowing each other’s tongues in broad daylight. It was disgusting and refreshing at the same time.
Just wait with the last of the three steps until you’re at home. I don’t want you to become the next YouTube sensation.
Where to Meet Costa Rican Girls in the Country
What’s the best way to meet thousands of stunning Costa Rican girls within seconds?
You guessed it. Online dating is the best, easiest, and most efficient way to meet women in this country. And it gets even better. There’s an online dating site with more 20-year-old Ticas than you can possibly handle.
I’ll reveal it soon (check out the table of contents if you can’t wait).
But what if you’ve never heard of that mysterious thing called “the internet” and you decide to meet girls in field?
Here are the best places for solo travelers to meet women…
Visit Tamarindo or Jaco to Date Sexy Costa Rican Beach Girls
Yes, Tamarindo and Jaco are famous among tourists. And yes, you’ll see dozens of overweight white girls who are looking for Latin lovers. Just ignore them.
Instead, focus on all the beautiful beach girls.
It’s impossible to visit these two places and to NOT meet an insanely attractive woman who wants to spend the evening listening to the waves, drinking cocktails, and whispering secrets in your ear.
Visit San Jose to Date Hot Costa Rican City Girls
I’m not a pussy, but there’s one thing I would never do:
Even if I find the best Airbnb in the whole wide world, I would not stay in downtown San José. It’s boring, it’s not safe at night, and every tourist looking for street hookers stays here. Avoid it.
I have a better idea:
Why don’t you stay in North San José or West San José?
Visit These Beaches to Surf with Your Costa Rican Girl
No, I’m not talking about nude beaches. Even though a beach full of naked Costa Rican women would be a dream come true.
Sorry, you have to continue to dream…
…or you can wake up and head to one of the following beaches:
Surfing is the national sport for Ticas. It’s like soccer for German guys. And surfer girls are some of the most laid-back and open-minded creatures on this planet.
Date the Smartest Costa Rican Girls in San Pedro
You don’t just want to meet any random girl. You want to meet hot Costa Rican women with big booties, big boobs, and big brains. San Pedro is a place where you will find girls who combine all three qualities.
Here are four reasons why:
It’s a university town near the capital. In fact, it’s so close that it’s considered part of the metropolitan area of San José. I think I’ll stay there next time…and pretend to be an exchange student.
Speak Spanish and Date Sexy Costa Rican Girls in Nature
What if you want to leave the tourist path?
Of course, you can look for girls in all kinds of small towns and villages. That’s up to you. But I have to warn you.
You have to overcome two barriers:
The Spanish language and their conservative upbringing
Unless you speak Spanish AND are looking for a Costa Rican wife, you should stay in San Jose or the places I already mentioned.
Date Black Costa Rican Girls in Puerto Limon
Oh, wait. There’s one more city that’s worth mentioning.
I don’t know if it’s true, but I met a guy in San José who told me about his obsession with dark-skinned women. The way he spoke about them was incredible. He was a lover of women and he wasn’t shy to admit his preference.
He was on his way to Puerto Limo.
Apparently, this city is full of African Costa Rican ladies. I still don’t know why he didn’t just travel to Africa, but hey…you might want to check it out.
You Don’t Have to Date Ticas in Costa Rica
Somehow I have the feeling that Costa Rica is the Germany of South America. Everyone wants to move there.
In other words, you don’t even have settle for local women.
You can also meet Nicaraguan girls (74.5% of the immigrants), Colombian chicas (4.3%), or Spanish women (4.2%).
According to Wikipedia, there are more than 30 different immigrant groups. Heck, you can even meet Chinese, Japanese, and Russian girls.
Why don’t you take a look for yourself?
Where to Meet Costa Rican Girls Online
The image I just shared with you is a screenshot I took in my Latin American Cupid dashboard.
What’s Latin American Cupid?
Oh, well…just the best dating site to meet women in Costa Rica.
This tiny dating site has more than 3 million members from all over South America. Most of these members are single women and as you can see from the screenshot above, a lot of them are from Costa Rica.
Is there any alternative?
To be honest, there isn’t. Yes, there are some marriage agencies that charge thousands of dollars to set up a meeting with a prostitute, but if you want to meet normal (and stunning) girls, this dating site is your best option.
3 Nightlife Tips to Meet Costa Rican Girls at Night (And Why it Sucks)
I have to warn you.
Meeting Costa Rican women at night sucks, at least when you’re not looking for prostitutes. Of course, you can have a couple of drinks at one of the clubs in the city center. But you won’t meet your future girlfriend there.
Let’s have a look at the uncomfortable truth about the Costa Rican nightlife and about the one secret that nobody talks about…
Why You Must Avoid Clubs in Costa Rica (And Tinder)
Forget about it!
Costa Rica is one of the most Catholic countries on earth. Okay, nowadays only 69.1% identify themselves as Catholic, which is an all-time low. But that doesn’t change anything about the fact that her parents told her that God, Jesus, and the 12 Apostles are constantly watching her.
And they’re all screaming “keep your panties on!”
She knows that her uncle would kill her if he found her on Tinder and she also knows that clubs are for hookers. It’s not my fault that clubs are painted with the sex tourist stigma. That’s how it is.
Decent Costa Rican babes avoid clubs like cats avoid water.
Even El Pueblo is Not What it Used to Be
El Pueblo was once known as THE nightlife venue in San Jose.
Bright lights, various clubs, bars with live music…yeah, the good old days. That time is over.
Today, El Pueblo can be summed up with this review:
What about all the sexy Costa Rican women?
They have changed the location. They are no longer in El Pueblo. Instead, they are waiting for you online.
The Secret Costa Rican Nightlife Spots Nobody Talks About
Okay, it’s not really a nightlife spot.
You can choose between many bars and small clubs. Oh yeah, and you can meet dozens of hot Costa Rican girls.
Remember what I said about San Pedro?
It’s a paradise for single men. And even though the clubs are not that big, the local student bars are worth checking out.
How to Find Out if You’re Dating a Good Costa Rican Girl
How to find a girl who’s not attracted to black credit cards?
Dating in Costa Rica is not easy. It’s tricky. The sex tourist blues is sung all over the island and it’s your biggest obstacle when it comes to finding a good girl.
The good girls are scared that you are one of THEM.
Let’s convince her that you’re a confident, smart, and life-affirming Global Seducer.
A Good Image Gets You the Good Costa Rican Girls
Here’s what not to do if you want to date Costa Rican beauties:
No good girl will come close to you.
The hookers, however, will. They want the watch and the gold chain. But seriously, don’t walk around like a typical tourist. Costa Rica doesn’t have the Brazilian beach culture. Wearing flip flops or sandals in the capital is just weird.
Oh, and don’t stay in the Hotel Del Rey or in the Hotel Cocal and Casino. Airbnb is your friend.
Is She a Prostitute? Make the Test
You don’t want to date hookers in Costa Rica.
That’s why you have to find out if the girl who smiles at you is one. That’s pretty easy. You just have to tell her that you’re staying in the Hotel Del Rey. Now wait for her reaction.
Option one: She looks at you as if you said that you’re married to your grandmother. Congratulations! She’s not a hooker.
Option two: She smiles like a monkey in a banana factory and flirts even more intensely, now that you dropped the Del Rey bomb.
Now it’s up to you what you do.
Not All Costa Rican Single Girls Follow You to the Hotel
Did I mention Airbnb?
Costa Rican prostitutes are waiting in hotel lobbies, in front of hotel rooms (that happened to a friend of mine) and in front of hotel entrances.
That’s exactly why normal girls avoid hotels.
Sorry, but there’s a high chance that she won’t follow you to your hotel. You can say “por favor” as many times as you want. It won’t happen.
What if you invite her to your apartment?
That’s different. No hookers are waiting in front of the entrance. No stigma. She’s just a girl who visits a guy she likes.
The Best Places for Your First Date in San Jose
Now you know how to avoid hookers.
But do you also know where to go on your first date?
In case you’re dating Costa Rican women in San Jose, you should make her your tour guide. Why? Well, because there’s nothing that foreign women love more than to be your sexy tour guide.
And it gives you the chance to visit the following incredible places…
Visit the Museo Nacional de Costa Rica
Come on. A little bit of culture won’t kill you.
The National Museum of Costa Rica covers everything from 1887 until today. You can find the whole history of this country in these walls.
What if you don’t give a shit about history?
No problem. Just remember that the girl you’re dating wants to sleep with an educated man who’s interested in her culture.
Enjoy a Day in the Mall San Pedro
Don’t go there because she wants a new handbag.
You’re a seducer, not a provider. You have a different agenda.
That’s the purpose of a mall.
Visit the Parque Zoologico Nacional Simon Bolivar
I probably have at least three spelling mistakes in that headline. That’s why I won’t spell it again. Let’s just call it the Zoo. The Zoo has many animals (duh!)
Why should you care?
Women love animals, especially when they are cute, funny, or spit.
That’s why you go there. Let her have fun with the animals. The moment she bonds with a monkey and looks at you, she bonds with you too.
Eat at the Tin Jo Restaurant
Why should you go to a Chinese restaurant in San Jose?
First of all, because it’s the only restaurant I’ve been to. Back when I was in San Jose, I was too afraid to eat local food.
Yep, I was such a pussy.
But that’s not the only reason. The food is amazing and the romantic atmosphere will make her knees wobble. Okay, maybe I’m just addicted to Asian food.
Enjoy the Waves and Her Wet Body
I already shared the best beaches to meet sexy Costa Rican surfer girls. But that doesn’t mean that you HAVE to meet woman at the beach.
You can also bring sand to the beach…beautiful sand you met online.
How to Turn a Costa Rican Girl into Your Girlfriend
But she’s not your girlfriend, at least not yet.
Of course, she wants to be your girlfriend. I mean, dating in this South American country is pretty simple. You go on a few dates and then you’re boyfriend and girlfriend. That’s her goal. And if you don’t mess up, you’ll soon have a Costa Rican girlfriend.
Here’s how to not mess up…
Demonstrate Your High Value (The Right Way)
I told you. No gold chains and expensive watches.
Here’s what you want to communicate:
I’m a successful man who values good women like you.
Here’s what you do NOT want to communicate:
I’m a rich guy who wants to buy poor girls like you.
You are not the first Western visitor. Millions of male tourists have been to the country. You want to stand out. No tourist uniform. Please remember that.
Button shirt, blazer, and leather shoes are the clothes to wear in Costa Rica.
Expect Your Costa Rican Girlfriend to Arrive JITT
When I was in university, I learned about the logistical principle JIT (Just in Time). When I was in San Jose, I learned about the logistical principle JITT (Just in Tico Time). And no, it’s not the same.
Beautiful Costa Rican women arrive late. Always.
You better tell her that she should arrive at 6pm if you want her to arrive at 7pm. They don’t have watches. They have pura vida.
Dating Costa Rican Girls is Pura Vida
Did you know that you’re reading an article about the happiest women in the world?
Yep, dating Costa Rican women can make a grumpy man smile. The women enjoy a simple, pure, and peaceful life. They are extremely friendly. And they are not as flakey as Colombian women and not as dramatic as Mexican women.
Turning her into your girlfriend is pura vida. Just enjoy the process.
Why Marrying Your Costa Rican Girlfriend is Dangerous
Enjoy the process, he said. It’s fun, he said.
Okay, making her your girlfriend is pura vida. Turning her into your Costa Rican bride is another story.
I know a guy who’s happily married to a Tica.
She’s 20 years younger. Maybe that’s why he smiles all the time. And I’m glad that he’s so happy with her because if he wasn’t happy, he’d have a big, big problem.
The Costa Rican Divorce Law Favors Your Wife
I love meeting and dating foreign women. It’s my biggest passion.
Maybe I’ll get married one day. Only God knows. But I know one thing for sure. I might date another Costa Rican woman, but I definitely won’t marry her.
Marriage in Costa Rica is like marriage in the USA.
In other words, you are royally fucked. The divorce law is in her favor. You have no chance. It’s as if this screaming redhead feminist that you see in countless YouTube videos (can’t remember her name) had designed it. It’s scary, really scary.
Only marry her if you’re 100% sure.
Marriage in Costa Rica is Extremely Traditional
Okay, not everything is bad. There’s good news:
Costa Rican mail order brides are very traditional. Your wife will cook, clean, and wash your clothes. You don’t have to do any of that. But you might have to support her daughter, or her son, or both.
Here’s something you need to know about Costa Rican mail order brides:
It’s a Catholic country. Parents are better at teaching their daughters about the bible than about birth control. It’s not that easy to meet a 25-year-old woman who doesn’t have a child.
If you date her, that doesn’t matter. If you think about marrying her, it matters.
Your Costa Rican Bride is Less Catholic than Her Mexican Cousin
Yes, they are Catholic.
But Costa Rican women for marriage are less Catholic than the ones in Mexico, Argentina, and most other South American countries. I guess that’s the only thing the Americanization was good for.
One Last Tip from a Costa Rican Girl I Met Online
Oh, I totally to tell you something:
She told me that date rape drugs are a huge issue in San Jose. I couldn’t find any study that backs this up, but I believe her.
Here’s why this is important:
Let’s say you meet a girl at a bar or take a girl you meet online to a bar. You offer her a drink. You expect her to accept it but she declines. You think that she’s not interested in you. You give up.
Don’t do that.
Here’s what to do instead:
Ask her if you can go together to the bar because you want to order a drink for her. Address the elephant in the room. She’ll think that you’re a good guy. Strike!
Summed Up Wisdom
A guy on the streets of Medellin told me that he wants to move to Costa Rica because of the girls. Is that really a good idea? Well, you can meet white, black, and Mestizo girls. And they have better English skills than most Latinas.
But why is dating in Costa Rica so tricky? Well, because of the hookers. In case you want to meet women who don’t work in the Hotel Del Rey, you have to follow the advice I share in this article. Oh, and don’t forget to test her. It’s so easy to find out if she’s a good girl.
And it’s even easier to meet good Costa Rican women if you’re looking for them on the largest Latin American dating site or near a college campus. Just remember that dating her is not the same as marrying her. Dating a Costa Rican girl is pura vida. Marrying her is…well…read the article.
