There are 2 small anime-cons in Costa Rica, one is in July the other one in November.If you do come to CR, just a small heads up, don't exchange your money at the airport, or with the dudes outside the airport as you will probably get ripped off, take the orange cabs if no one is picking you up, use common sense and even though most Costarricans will go out of their way to help a tourist, bad people take advantage of it to rip off tourists and or mug them, keep an eye on your stuff all the time and when going out on the streets only carry the essentials and stuff you wouldn't mind loosing. If you go to a restaurant/store and the prices are in dollars, its probably a tourist trap. Costa Rican tap water is clean and safe, but the minerals in it are different from yours and in some people that means some digestive distress. If you are presented with the chance to eat patacones, tamales, gallo pinto, black bean soup, chorreadas, platanos maduros con queso y canela, tamal de elote, tamal asado... well, anything you haven't tasted before, please do, its all good.Almost forgot, restaurants already charge a 10% service tax, so we don't usually tip.
So, Tora-Con 2010 is in...10 days. Who's going? Anyone from the forums?I will be attending both days, cosplaying as T.K. from Digimon one day and Ness from Earthbound the other.
