Internet Access in Costa Rica

If you’re looking to get Internet access in Costa Rica, there are several options to choose from.  Costa Rica has a relatively modern telecommunication infrastructure and has the second highest Internet coverage in Latin America.  All Internet traffic goes through state-owned Grupo ICE and its subsidiary RACSA – monopoly providers of telephony, data communications and Internet. 

Free Wireless Internet Access

RACSA offers free wireless internet access in popular spots throughout the country, including international airports and shopping malls.  Most hotels also provide free wireless access, as well as popular restaurants, such as McDonald’s, Subway, Bagelman’s, Denny’s, etc. 

Internet Cafés

It’s not difficult to find an Internet Café in Costa Rica – just about every small town in the country has one.   Many of the Internet Cafés sell coffee and food while you surf the net.  Rates vary and usually increase the further away you get from San José.  The speeds go from 56k modems, to WIFI and cable with high speed access.
