Puerto Jimenez, Golfito, Puntarenas: 60702
A little bit of history about our mail system in Costa Rica — we don’t have one. Yes, it’s true…we have no standard system of addresses, so most streets have no names or signs and houses don’t have street numbers. Ok, while “they” are working on a major overhaul (or really, just the beginning of) our postal system (and we are now in 60702 postal code!!!), you need to get familiar with our system so you can come visit us.
Most Costa Rican addresses are expressed in relation to the closest community landmark, like the Super 96 Market or the Collectivo to Carate & Corcovado National Park. Confusing? Yes? Ok, like I said… just take a taxi and tell them to go to Inn Jimenez, the pink B&B house across the street from the Bus station to San Jose and next to the hospital clinic.
See how easy that is? Welcome to Costa Rica!
