Comments Off on Costa Rican Local Customs

If you’re traveling to a new destination, it’s always a good idea to learn more about the local customs.  It’s important to show your sensitivity towards the people who live in this location, and to realize that you are on their turf, as it were.  Learning about local customs in Costa Rica should help to make your travel experience more enjoyable and smoother for everyone involved.

In general, Costa Ricans (Ticos) are polite, non-confrontational people who treat everyone with respect.  The more polite and more patient that you are, the more you’ll truly get from Costa Rica while you are visiting.

Ticos tend to enjoy their lives and to focus on pleasures and family rather than on money. While you’re in Costa Rica, you should know that 10% is added to each restaurant bill that you’ll see as a service charge.  This means that most locals don’t give tips when they dine out.  However, in many of the tourist areas, tipping is expected, just because it’s become the social norm.  In general, if you are in a tourist area, you should leave a 5-10% tip.  If, however, you’re in a local restaurant or an out-of-the-way location, you won’t find it necessary to tip. Taxis should charge you by the meter and you don’t need to tip the taxi driver.

Enjoy your trip and pay attention to the local customs – you just might learn something and decide to adapt some of their ways as your own!

A couple of years, only specialists had heard of mortgages subprime, they knew a such Bernard Madoff, promoter of the electronic market of shares in United States, or knew that Lehman Brothers was not a set of soul music. Companies continued with their individual careers to reach the Olympus of corporate earnings, investors were more concerned about buying cars and houses, while both asked for credits to make consumption pull and not miss opportunities that were presented as unique and unrepeatable. Rivers of ink ran to find explanation to the current situation. So he resorted to economic history, with the idea of trying to connect the dimension of the current crisis with the which occurred in 1929. They broke out speculative bubbles that affect real estate and financial sectors then and now, in the words of Galbraith exposing the gaps that claimed its foundations. The insatiable greed and politics take more firewood to the fire, or that the same is rubbing the liquidity trap with interest by soil types, today as yesterday, it supports these behaviors. Hence the need for a regulation put coto opaque operations including those in Luxembourg that rampant camped for more than one decade in the roaring twenties and the happy 2000.

Interesting thing about economic history is to learn from the mistakes and, indeed, although there is a certain similarity between the current crisis and that of the 29, there is no comparison in the dimensions, view the gravity of the yesteryear. Dusting off the archives are seen strategies followed in the resolution of the critical situation. In 1929, the developed countries sought the exit from the crisis by the competition. The policies of devaluation of the exchange rate to gain competitiveness applied by United States were replicated by the European countries through the so-called policies of beggar-thy-neighbor, with disastrous in the majority of cases. Against the competition is structured as current formula cooperation. Against the lack of coordination, the coordination.

Resuscitating Keynes to resolve the crisis nearly a century later leads us to understand that the imaginative formulas are few among economists and that, when it comes to the truth, again the battles between classical and Keynesian, as if it were an economic derbi. And the European Union as a playing field. The European Union and its contradictions: between the agricultural policy and the free market, between a Bologna’s excellence and the budgetary constraint, between innovation and environment, between stability and Growth Pact and resource to the deficit to overcome the crisis, between Luxembourg and the Cayman Islands. And in the midst of these contradictions, those of the countries themselves. Between the economies of Central and Eastern Europe, countries convinced that quickly that the growth of the European Union model was good, and that even we would give them our currency. Thus grew above the EU average for more than ten years until it touches the finger his equality with the incomes of Western countries. How reminds me your situation the Spanish. But with the crisis they were investors, appropriations, growth, employment and left uncovered structural deficiencies covered with structured benefits. Europe must resolve these contradictions if it wants to move forward with successful and reinforced in the current situation. As he said Rockefeller, great fortunes are always kneaded in times of crisis.

The mayor, in symmetry to the heads of the Executives of the governments federal and state, exerts the functions politics, administrative executive and.

To circumvent the situation, the government called a referendum in October 2007, the first in the history of the country, where the majority supported the agreement. However, after the referendum there were other obstacles to the adoption of certain complementary laws, the latest of which, an intellectual property, was passed by Congress in mid-November. The delays forced the government to ask for two extensions Arias Washington. Finally, on December 23, representatives of the two countries exchanged diplomatic notes in Washington, in which Costa Rica reported that it had met all requirements. Of course, to this reality no reviews cross, like the Nobel Prize for Peace. 1980a, International President Serpaj Al. Adolfo Perez Esquivel, when in a letter to the president of the republic idea Areas Costa Rica Oscar (also Nobel Peace Prize, he pointed out in some of its lines: There are concerns that make the situation to lead the country to sign the FTA with the United States. Both you and the legislators know that these agreements commercial or otherwise have absolutely nothing, the unit will be total, as you well know, the big powers are those imposed price and condition the life and development of peoples.

It should be remembered and to remember agricultural subsidies to U.S. producers, the asymmetry and inequality are enormous, some will benefit at the expense of hunger and misery of the people of Costa Rica. It is necessary to create the spaces for participation and trading with the U.S., are important and necessary, but without loss of sovereignty and the right of the people. The signing of FTA with U.S. lead to Costa Rica to become an American colony, and add a star closer to his flag. The failure of the U.S. to introduce a continental level in 2005 of NAFTA, is a clear and forceful that there are people who not give up to resist the strong pressure and have the courage to defend their rights. Faced with these challenges may wonder he wants the Costa Rican people.

If a query was made to enable the people democratically decide on their present and future? Let me tell you Mr President, I am sure most of the people of Costa Rica does not want to be a colony and lose their sovereign rights, identity and values.
