Prostitution in Costa Rica

Prostitution in Costa Rica 2019-04-17T12:34:26+00:00

If you are a single male traveler, you most likely know about the dark side of Costa Rica.  People in the know, know.  There is a side of Costa Rica that is so dark that it’s claimed lives, created crime, and ruined relationships.  While prostitution is legal in Costa Rica, it’s an extremely riveting topic to many people.  Today I’ll share the truth about Costa Rica hookers and prostitutes, because any traveler to the country should be aware of what happens there, whether they are for or against it.

The Sex Industry in Costa Rica

I studied in Costa Rica in the year 2000, and had a very brief run-in with this industry, but only during my one weekend of free travel from my home base, near Liberia, Costa Rica.  Along with some friends, we chose to stay in a hotel – one that would later become infamous – called the Hotel Del Rey.

Some men prefer the allure of the bartenders in establishments that feature prostitution. What do you prefer?

“Cold beer, casino gaming, sportsbook, and Air Conditioning,” read the advertisement in the Frommer’s book.  Having been studying in Guanacaste for a solid two months, we felt that we all deserved some of the amenities we weren’t afforded in the scorching hot Guanacaste climate.  That said, four of us split a two bedroom room for the weekend not knowing what we had just gotten ourselves into.

“Make sure to come to the lobby at night,” said the man behind reception, who ended up being Greg Ruzicka, an owner of the hotel at the time.  “There will be 100’s of women who want you,” he continued.

Being barely 21, and wet to the prostitution scene in Costa Rica, we had no idea that the pay for play model was so in your face.

(By the way, you will need a passport when you go to Costa Rica.)

If you need a passport or travel visa for ANY country, and need to expedite it, there is one service I can highly recommend over any other service:  Click this link ——> RushMyPassport.

Needless to say, that night was an eye opening night.  Admittedly, all of us college students, two months fresh off the boat from Minnesota, were terrified to even make eye contact with the women.  When you do, the lock in on you and you become their mission.  Scared, we sat at the bar, watched American sports, and drank cold beer.  The scenery and people watching was amazing, and something that would never be forgotten.

Fast forward to 2018, I had a business in Costa Rica over a decade ago.  I had a house, land, and a full fledged life down there.  A lot of entertaining went on at the Del Rey and other nearby establishments.  I was a local.  I was friends with all the bartenders, security, and of course, the local street vendors.  When you are a local, it’s one thing, but to be a foreign local, that’s another.  They welcome you, and you will never go forgotten.  Even if you keep to yourself, people take notice.

Usually I was flanked by 2-3 or more friends as well as personal security, so I wasn’t hard to find in the San Jose area.  While I don’t visit as much as I’d like to, and the scene has really changed, today I present to you my recollection of 17 years traveling to and living in Costa Rica.

It’s important to know that my musings are mostly about the San Jose Escort scene.  Since I lived outside of San Jose, and worked, this was my area of expertise.

San Jose Costa Rica Prostitution

First off, this is 100% legal in Costa Rica.

(Disclaimer:  I’m not here promoting or condoning it – just presenting facts for travelers.)

However, there are two things to remember. 

  1.  No minors.  No exceptions.  Don’t even think about it. You will be locked up immediately.
  2.  Pimping is illegal.  Women are all independent in this trade.

Here’s a recent arrest that proves that the country does NOT mess around on either item.  – BUSTED.

Also, it’s not something most people try to celebrate, and there are many groups trying to get rid of the sex trade.  (Read –

The trade has unions, medical cards, and access to health care.  If you are a professional sex worker, the protocol is to be examined by a Doctor every 15 days.  You must carry a CCSS card for this.

Like Amsterdam, the sex scene is openly discussed in Costa Rica.  It’s something people know about, talk about, and have opinions on.  I’ve seen many famous people from the USA and other countries in places where prostitutes roam.  More than I could probably remember even.

As far as facilitating prostitution in Costa Rica, (pimping, trafficking, sex rings) it’s a very significant crime.  The view here is that nobody should be forcefully entering this trade, but if they want to, they can. 

Another reason that will attract Costa Rican women to the sex trade is that they can make up to 125 times the average minimum wage in Costa Rica.  Let that sink in for a second, and you’ll see why women will go to great lengths to earn $100 while their friends work for only a few dollars per hour.  The quality of life can drastically be brought up in just a few hours per week, if they play their cards right.

You’ll also find that working women will have a grasp on the English language most of the time.  At least they know the sexual buzz words, that’s for sure.

Where to Find Sex in Costa Rica

Since I moved away in 2010, a lot of the scene has supposedly moved to Jaco Beach.  The Jaco prostitutes enjoy the nice beach life as well as growing tourism trend and mainly congregate at the Hotel Cocal & Casino.  While they do exist in other areas, Jaco, along with the declining San Jose sex scene, are the two predominant areas.

San Jose offers the “Gringo Gulch,” an area that is also called the “Zona roja.”  (Red light district.)  This is normally reference to the zone one block North of Mercado Central and it houses seedy bars, dingy night clubs and hourly motels.

Travel Tip:  In Costa Rica, a “night club” is somewhere females dance.  A “strip club” in the USA.

That isn’t to say you won’t find Costa Rican prostitutes in other areas of the country, but that’s just the belly of the beast.  The busiest working women are in Jaco and San Jose.

Where Will You Find Sex in Costa Rica in 2019?

Again, most everyone starts their adventures at the iconic H0tel Del Rey.  It boasts a restaurant, 24 hour bar, casino, sometimes a sportsbook, a coffee station, and more sex workers than you could ever meet over a three day weekend.  Rooms are upstairs, and heavily guarded by security.  There is a fee to take women to your room, of course.

Del Rey Hotel Outside

The outside looks so simple, so innocent.

Typically, the bartenders here earn very well.  They aren’t afraid to drink with you – on your tab of course.  They are very good at running it up by drinking things they wouldn’t drink on their own dime, like Grey Goose.

When you recall that the average female who graduates college only earns around $600 monthly, you’ll see why this place is so catty.

Inside the Del Rey, you’ll find sex starting at $20 for a low end, normally old, overweight, and very imperfect Dominican or Nicaraguan.  On the high end of the spectrum, you’ll find that a fresh off the boat Colombian with all the accessories will ask for $300.  You get all types of types in between, and of course, things will change based on their current need for cash, their desire to be with you physically, and of course, how their day is going so far.

Sure, you can find many options below $20 in Costa Rica, which is downright frightening.  These are mostly street hookers in San Jose, mostly known for their transgender traits and desire to rob you.  Many carry knives, and they are usually part of the old adage “good from far, far from good.”  Be very careful, because as locals say “they are on the street for a reason.”  This normally refers to the lack of ID card, having an issue at a place like the Del Rey, or just being volatile and getting the old 86.  They could also be HIV positive.

The Ultimate Hack to Meeting Women in Costa Rica in 2019

One thing to keep in mind is that the women here want to meet foreign men.  American, Canadian, they don’t care.  They want to be treated to dinners, movies, and things that most local men just fail to deliver on because, well, they have a reputation as being players and not really being doting guys.  I’m sure some local men “do the most” but this is a widespread thought, and there is a HUGE reason Ticas like foreigners other than just the perceived wealth.

To really meet women that want to meet you, the biggest trick in the book (prior to your trip is best) is to join

I read about this on another site, and didn’t take the advice until my fourth trip after reading that.  Upon messaging about 50 women on the site, I found that I had seven dates lined up prior to even landing in San Jose!  It literally was the biggest hack on how to meet women in Costa Rica, and the results were incredible.  I met two for coffee, and ended up in a casual encounter.  Another two I met for drinks, and well, that ended the same way.  Not all women are hookers in Costa Rica, of course!  (Don’t laugh, some men think that.)  The regular woman who sells clothing or works for a law firm likes foreign men just like the ones who are simply out there looking for money. is a small monthly fee to have access to women who want to date you in Costa Rica.  Trust me, it’s a time saver like no other.  Tinder and Bumble just aren’t big down there.

What do Costa Rica Prostitutes Look Like?

On average, the typical Costa Rican woman is very attractive.  With their exotic look, tan and silky skin, what’s there not to like?  They are lighter than most Latinas, which many guys like.  What I

Woman posing

This is one of the better looking Costa Rica prostitutes you’d see. This photo was found on a website promoting The Cocal Hotel & Casino.

like best is their accents and the way they speak Spanish – it’s much more clear than neighboring countries.

There are, of course, many types of Costa Ricans.  You have an entire side (Limon, the East Coast) of people with Caribbean roots, so if you like darker women, they are represented down here too.  Don’t forget, there are women from many other Latin American countries, not just Ticas.  You will find all types working in this industry.

You’ll find that most Costa Rican’s enjoy the beach.  So, if you find that special someone and strike up a several day romance, keep that in mind, and think about taking a trip.  They will not say  no, especially since you are paying their way.

Where Do Prostitutes Hang Out in Costa Rica?

This article summed it up best as far as where do they hang out to find Johns.  The Del Rey being #1, and the Jaco Beach area, mostly the Cocal Hotel & Casino, are the main staples.  However, they do hang out at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Barrio Otoya, just blocks from the Del Rey, as well as many lower end, dingy massage par-lours.  While the law is against these, (several people will argue against that but the number of raids, shutdowns, and arrests speak otherwise) you’ll find many unassuming operators in San Jose and beyond.  There have been reports of all sorts of conditions, prices, and activities, but again, I don’t mind hanging out in a well trafficked hotel and bar, but I typically stay far away from the other spots.

Also, keep in mind, these are regular people!  I’ve had many occasions where I’ve seen the women dancing the night away in Disco’s like Club Vertigo, Frankie Go’s, and Castro’s Bar.  I can’t even state if any or all of them are open as I write this in 2018, so I may be dating myself with that comment.  The fact of the matter is, they have lives too.  If you catch them with their guard down, strike up a conversation, you never know where it could go.

    Until recently you could also look for our services in craigslist, but posting in CL is getting more difficult everyday. This is partially due to the measures against sex trafficking, which is good, but is affecting us. It is important to let you know that some of us are working independently, away from the streets, without intermediaries, providing safer and better services. And we are using the internet to promote ourselfs.

      CL and Backpage were shut down by the authorities because of human trafficking. It’s for everyone’s safety and I entirely agree with why they did it.

      I normally don’t allow people to drop comments that blatantly promote a business or person’s interests, but when I looked at your site I figured I’d keep this open so you can advertise because clearly you need to get some hair waxed.

      Here’s to hoping you you find that special older gentlemen to help you get rid of the extra body hair.

    I think that forced prostitution sucks. Human trafficking is TERRIBLE and need to be fought with all the tools that justice has. We agree. And sure, craigslist and back page are doing what they can against it, which (as I said) is also good. My point is totally something else: some of us are not forced to be sex workers, some of us prefer to work independently. We find it safer, more profitable and we also consider that it is good and safe for our clients. We use our own limited resources, like websites and business cards, to promote our services and it is not easy, of course. Making it difficult to advertise in places like craigslist has a collateral effect: makes some girls more vulnerable to intermediaries that has (for sure) more resources and possibilities to reach clients. And that should also be considered. That´s pretty much what I meant with my comment. I think I was respectful. Now, about your personal opinions: don´t worry, I didn´t get mad. They are rude but it only reflects the way you think and that´s ok. I consider myself beautiful, very sexy and smart, and my clients do too.

      I am a semi-retired Website designer/developer from the US. I agree that Human Trafficking is egregious. I am wondering why, since prostitution in CR is legal, hasn’t anyone run a website where the women can post their own pictures, vital statistics, specialties, contact info, and even daily schedules?

      This would stop the need for sites like backpage & craigslist that were dangerous for working women and bring the industry into the safe light. I would do it for free- design & host with the hopes it would encourage local businesses to advertise on the site.This could be a win/win situation. Let me know- maybe a partnership since you are the expert and know the territory? Norman

      Yes, that’s very abundant as well. There are many gay / lesbian clubs in San Jose. Gay friends of mine have referenced Pucho’s in the past.

      Also, the streets of Costa Rica’s capital, San Jose, are littered with transgenders. Be careful though, as many are there to rob unsuspecting tourists.

      Jaco, all day long. San Jose perhaps for one night if you want to check out the Del Rey, Tango India, and if you want to relax and laugh a bit, the Sportsmens Lodge. But just one day you can crush all of those. Jaco is way more exciting these days. If you have any direction questions just post them in a subsequent comment and I’ll get to them.

      I’ve never heard of it being “a thing” in Costa Rica, to be honest. If it’s legal for females, I don’t think the law would exclude males from this, but I’m not a lawyer. There is a gay scene in Costa Rica, I had gay friends from living there for a while. There are clubs like La Avispa and Pucho’s Bar that you may want to head to in order to get more answers.

If you stay at Sportsmen’s Lodge and strike up a conversation with the men there that partake in that stuff you’ll definitely be able to get to the bottom of it very quickly. I agree, Sportsmen’s is a great place to hang out, especially for sporting events. The owner, Bill, is a great guy.

      Very safe provided you use common sense. Don’t be flashy, there is no need to be in Costa Rica. As far as hotels allowing working women in, most of the dingy ones will, but the more upscale you go, expect to pay a guest fee. I’ve had clients in town pay as high as $80 for the fee.

    I’ve heard proper brothels are amazing safe and low coast with better euro or asian women, I ve been to Jaco it was fun, mostly Cocal hotel, planning to visit again was thinking about del rey but your article suggest otherwise.

      It’s definitely worth a stop by, due to the nostalgia. If you happen to be in San Jose, that is. Don’t make a special trip to go just there.

    Hello, i am a young european man heading to Costa Rica for work in a short time, but i will take a few days of relaxing before heading to my work place and i already booked 2 days at the Sportsmens, to be clear, i go there for the ladies and because i only heard good things about that hotel.
    But lets face it i am, well… not very good at approaching women, not that i am shy… Well ok i am terrible x) any advises on how to approach them as you said we have to do the first step ? I am a village boy and well i have some classy clothing if appearances is that important but i am not used to city parties and stuff like a city boy is

    Thank you 🙂

          Haven’t spent considerable time out there, but there was a disco near the four way stop where you can head north, or head to the beaches. I can’t recall it’s name. That disco had some working women according to my local friends, and of course, if that one isn’t around, just ask a local what the new disco is, because they will be there, I’d bet on it.

    Hello. Are all the hotels near Jaco Lady Friendly?

      Admin April 19, 2019 at 12:40 am - Reply

      Yeah, I have never heard of anyone being rejected for having chicas come back. Sometimes hotels will add a fee and make a big scene of it though, speaking from friend’s experiences.

    Do you have any recommendations for hotels to stay at and bars/clubs to check out in Jaco. Heading down there in 2 weeks by myself.

    • Admin
      Admin April 25, 2019 at 7:29 pm - Reply

      The bars and clubs are all on the main drag. There are only a dozen or so, so wherever you hear music is where to stop by. It changes nightly, but stuff like Le Loft, Man Cave, Amigos, are always popular. It’s a small town, if you walk it you will run into just about everything, and won’t miss anything.

      As far as hotels, it depends on budget. I’m a Los Suenos person, and rent from owners,, or just stay direct through the hotel. If you don’t mind the monger seen and all it comes with, and want to stay in the action, you can’t get any closet to it than staying right at the Cocal. (Not for me, though….too wild.)

      I only know with certainty on two of those hotels. The Intercontintental will allow you as well as the Sheraton. Both have guest fees. Check with them regarding that. I can’t comment on the others as I haven’t known anyone to stay there within 5 years or more.

      I don’t think they have the adults-only label but the Cocal is NOT a place I’d ever bring a minor. Stay there.

      Jaco is less than 90 minutes from San Jose, GIVEN a few things: rain, traffic, and time of season. You can make it quicker, but allow for 90. You can find a private transport from $120 – $150 and UBer is an option as well as bus.

    I stay in condos on the beach in Jaco alot – several of them only allow people that are on a guest list that you provide, so do your research.
    I find The Palms by Crocs casino is the best. Just check the girls in with security.

    Just got back from Jaco and San Jose, just before U.S. Memorial Day. Stay at the Sportsmen (owned by two American brothers; you will see Bill the owner onsite regularly) in San Jose and rent a Condo with friends at Vista Mar (part of the Cocal). San Jose women will ask for $100 US and Jaco Beach women will ask for $150 US. Both lodgings are probably the safest around, checking all girls in and the girls knowing that if they do you wrong, they will lose their privileges. Happy to answer any specific questions you have. Great thread here for educating travelers. Thanks guys!

    Hello Tim,
    Would you recommend asking to see a CCSS card? And what do the locals workers call this ID in Spanish?

    • Admin
      Admin June 8, 2019 at 1:39 pm - Reply

      Locally the ID is called a “CEDULA.” If you are having questions about an age, YES. Don’t take any chances. Never.

    Hi Guys, I’ll be coming to San Jose in August for a little hernia surgery but before I’ll have a few days mongering. My question is should change money or is it just as easy to pay USD? Most of ASIA USD is fine but in China the girls have trouble exchanging and want RMB. Just wondering.

    Thanks, Raul
