Subject: What Emergency Numbers Should Be Used While Traveling In Costa Rica
(Posted on Nov 27, 2013 at 10:08AM )

los suenos costa ricaTravelers demand perfection from their Costa Rica vacations. They’ve been promised white sand and blue seas, and they expect that promise to be fulfilled.

Touring a foreign country isn’t always idyllic, however. Emergencies may instead occur, with travelers suffering from illness, disputes, thefts and other problems. These situations can’t be properly planned for. They’re unfortunate side-effects of crossing borders.

It’s important, therefore, to know all local emergency numbers.

Those entering the Los Suenos, Jaco or Manuel Antonio regions should note this Frommer's Travel Guide information:

Police: Dial 911 to receive an English speaking operator.
Police: Dial 2222-1365 to receive a local operator.
Ambulance: Dial 1028.
Fire Brigade: Dial 1118.

Remember these numbers, along with contact information for your lodgings or charter services, to ensure total safety while visiting Costa Rica.
