(Posted on Dec 12, 2013 at 03:26PM )

los suenos costa ricaTraveling to an unfamiliar country can prove challenging - especially when those travels require last minute purchases. Navigating even a tiny town’s streets can confound tourists, and trying to learn business hours can seem impossible.

Frommer’s, however, has discovered the best times to visit Costa Rica’s boutiques, cafes and more.

Remember these business hours while exploring Los Suenos, Jaco and Manuel Antonio:

General Stores

Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Speciality Stores

Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.


Sunday through Saturday, 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Exception: No alcoholic beverages served two days before Easter.

Post Offices

Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.


Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
While planning the perfect vacation - scheduling charter trips and other outdoor adventures - remember these hours. Visit stores in between angling, rafting, zip-lining and more.
