The High Cost of Costa Rica

Budget buster Costa Rica flexed its financial muscle all over us when we went out to celebrate Charlotte’s birthday. A simple meal of pizza, beer and salad netted the establishment $60 in Oz money, including over $12 in taxes and other shifty add-ons (that really is massive given our budget for this part of the world). With our wallets smarting from the sudden weight loss, we planned a quick getaway into waters more forgiving of travellers who aren’t moneyed Californians on two-week sojourns between i-mergers. Onto Nicaragua, and quick!
