The majority of Costa Ricans live with their parents or extended family until they are married.
It is not acceptable for them to bring a date home to spend the night, no matter how old they are or whether they are a woman or a man.
For couples looking for intimacy, they can go to one of the love motels (moteles) that are prevalent throughout the country. Condoms are available at all pharmacies and grocery stores (supermercados).
They are also sometimes included in the room cost or available for an extra fee at the love motel, but you can’t find them in the bar or club bathrooms. Abortion is illegal unless the mother’s life is in danger.
Costa Rican men are passionate in all aspects of life, with an abundance of that famous Latino machismo.
