    How to ask for GFE in Spanish?

    That's what I'll want when I get there. Was thinking along the lines of "¿Tú ofreces servicias como una novia?" or is that too direct? Or just try to talk them up downstairs, and if they aren't mercenary-acting, does that suggest GFE as a possibility?

    Maybe the GFE is a little harder to get than it used to be but you can still get it.

    Agreed.

    As to crowds last time I went (last July or so) the place was PACKED like sardines. And I've heard reports of the same thing since then, in the past several months.

    I absolutely cannot believe the HDR will close or kick out the girls. They are business men, not stupid idiots. Why would they kill the goose that lays the golden eggs?

    Money:
    DO NOT bring $100 or $50 bills, people are afraid of them, there have been many counterfeits. Maybe it's better than it used to be but use $20s or even $10s to avoid problems.

    Get a Capitol One 360 account in the USA. No ATM charges and good exchange rates without exchange fees. I closed my Chase account quickly and use CapOne which is awesome. No need to bring much money to CR just use your Cap One debit card in most any machine in Costa Rica. Occasionally an old machine won't accept the new Chip cards but not hard to find ones that will like at Scotia Bank or BCR. I live here and use Cap One exclusively so I never pay an ATM fee nor ridiculous exchange fees.
    In regards to HDR, it is indeed a money making machine. Why kill it? I hope it stays exactly the way it is right now. However, if any of you guy's remember the situation in Rio in regards to Club HELP, it can definitely happen.

    Money

    I've frequently exchanged $100 bills for colones at the Colonial Casino with zero issues over the years, including this one.

    ATM withdrawals

In the airport, on the departure side, there is a Bank of San Jose that will give you a good rate. Walk in to the departure area and turn left. Go all the way to the checkpoints. The Bank of San Jose is on your left. There are money exchange booths in that area also. Ignore them and go to the bank.
    I have pulled $1000 a day from Scotia Bank in 2 withdrawals back to back. Haven't pulled that much since last year so maybe it has changed but I doubt it. I pulled $450 recently in one pull at the Scotia ATM. Pretty sure you can still do 2 back to back at Scotia.

    At BCR the limit might be around $200 but you can do 2 back to back, I did it the other day. It said "You've reached your limit" and so I put my card back in for another limit!

    At Davivienda you can also get quite a bit, maybe $500, I forget.

    It's always possible. Like most things in CR. That different cities have different rules, or different branches do (though I doubt different branches do). So bring 2-3 cards just in case one doesn't work.

    But I do use my Cap one card exclusively and have yet to have a problem and I use it every week and have for 2 years here.

    No one should ever pay over $100 to a girl, they will think you're a sucker and you'll drive up the rate to the rest of us. I try to pay 40 mil which is about $70 and I never pay more than 50 mil which is around $87. You need to negotiate a little! If you're in love with her and she refuses to go that low then okay give her the $100 but try not to. $100 is a cr*p load of money here!

    I highly recommend you go for the hourly rate. This place has about 20 girls in rotation and usually about a dozen at any one time. Hours are 7 days / wk, 9 am to 7 pm. The hours are deliberately designed to cater to businessmen and tourists, as they avoid the drunken crowd that comes out later. The manager's focus is on Customer Service, a rare commodity in this business. He selects the girls for no drug use, no fake tits, and great attitude. Believe me, it works. I will dream of Diana for a long time. Because of the place's good reputation they get both local businessmen and referrals from several hotels. It is located on Calle 4 between Avenida 8 and 10, near the pedestrian streets in downtown.
    What does she look like I go this week any photos.

    I land close to 9 PM. Will that bank still be open? Guessing not.

    Thanks.
    Since the SL quotes the room rates in dollars, you should use dollars to pay that. Everything else, use colonies. It is not easier in pay in dollars anywhere you go in SJ, unless the price is quoted only in dollars. Some of the ladies know the exchange rate, and may insist on dollars; but most will accept colonies at 500/1. Make sure you negotiate with them in colonies. You don't want a scene with them demanding dollars because that is what you offered them.

    All you need is your passport and the address of where you are staying.

    No Visa required.

    Passport is all that's needed. Most girl's will want dollar's which is widely accepted all over San Jose. Sometimes however it is cheaper to pay in Colonies.

    Have fun and report back to us.

    Dollars or Colones?

    ATM is your best friend. Been said many times on these pages, avoid exchange offices especially ones in the airport. The only country you most likely won't get screwed (or screwed badly) for exchanging currency is China as the government strictly controls the exchange regime. But still, always use your ATM and notify your bank ahead of time of your travel plans so they won't block your card if used outside of your home country.

    ATM would be the best, depending on what your bank charges you. I was there for four months once and I never changed any money (although my landlord was a gringo and I was paying rent in dollars).
