Speak Spanish like a Costa Rican

The new paperback version of  "Christopher Howard’s Official  Guide to Costa Rican Spanish" may be purchased at

Anyone who seriously plans to live or retire in Costa Rica should know Spanish — the more the better. Frankly, you will be disadvantaged, handicapped and be considered a foreigner to some degree without Spanish. Part of the fun of living in another country is communicating with the local people, making new friends and enjoying the culture.

Most English speakers who come to Costa Rica will find it hard to understand and communicate with the locals. Even people with knowledge of the Spanish language have a difficult time with the local slang. Like English, Spanish has become very idiomatic. Everyday conversations are filled with local jargon called, tiquismos.

This guide will help you decipher most of the local idioms and enable you to communicate on a basic lever.
