These notes were made during a week long trip to Costa Rica. These are just our food experiences and you may have a totally different experience depending on your budget, where you travel and where you eat.

Notes from February 2005

Bread products are available in most towns, but are usually sweet. Mussanni is a chain of bakery stores found all over Costa Rica. They sponsor one of the local triathletes! Also packaged corn chips are a common snack food everywhere.
