Online is a bit played out due to the influx of traveling gringos, but it’s still worth a shot.The capital of Costa Rica is San Jose (San Pedro) and is certainly the best city for dating Costa Rican women if that's what you're looking for. I stumbled around drunk numerous times late at night, sometimes alone and sometimes with a girl. However, I heardof a number of people getting jumped near the mall at dusk and at night.The area near Theatro Nacional in downtown San Jose is crawling with women during the day and is a decent day game spot.I did a few approaches there one day, but again, nothing came of it.San Jose and San Pedro are both ugly places in my opinion.You can see some mountains on the skyline, but the architecture is not impressive. This threw the vibe off quite a bit in my experiences.San Pedro is a five to ten-minute taxi ride to almost anywhere in San Jose.
The rain combined with the shithole of a city is not a good combo. I would not recommend staying in downtown San Jose. If you choose to stay downtown, I recommend staying somewhere near Club Vertigo and Rapsodia Lounge.There are a few other suburbs near San Jose that may be worth checking out – one being Heredia.I didn’t check the area out much, but I’ve heard good things.Thetica women can be curvy, but certainly not Caribbean-curvy.They aren’t ugly at all, but thetica girls are not anything special. The country has been ambushed with gringos for the past thirty years.
