Phones und cellular phones in Costa Rica
In Costa Rica the phone calls are quite cheap
That's one of the reasons we can offer all national calls in the Hotel for free
Directly out of the room, you must select 9 to get an outside line and then can directly dial the desired phone.
In Costa Rica there are no area codes. Each number consists of 8 numbers. Numbers that begin with 2 or 3 are landlines. Numbers that begin with 8, are mobile numbers from the ICE Network, the state-owned telephone company. Numbers with 6 are from Movistar and with 7 are from Claro Networks.
Anyone who brings his own mobile phone must comply with the following case. With its own SIM card mobile phones will work, the GSM 1800 and UMTS 850 3G network (Quad-band phones) work immediately in roaming mode. But you have to expect quite a high cost.
The better solution is to purchase a SIM card in Costa Rica. We have SIM cards in all standard sizes (Nano, Micro, Mini) in Hotel Posada Nena- line costs with a starting balance of $ 6 - $ 6.
