Traveling to Costa Rica


I am going to Costa Rica for 10 days in September, and I am wondering if there is a package I can get in order to use email and/or send and receive texts. I have an iphone 4, if that matters.

Haha, no. I'm totally serious, I'm completely ignorant when it comes to geography. Specifically in that region. I can point out Bangladesh no problem. But Barbados, I dunno.

So you cannot buy a package for costa rica as you can with some other carribean countries?

You can activate international roaming for voice (and text) via self serve, then log out and log back in (security feature) to activate international roaming for data. Those features are free, but all they do is allow roaming, they don't cover roaming charges. In Costa Rica you'll be in the "Zone 2" area, so it'll be $2.50 per minute for calls, $0.60/SMS and $10/MB.
Thanks for all the help!

Not what you want to hear but NO: http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-long-distance-and-travelling/travelling Costa Rica definitely zone 2 for roaming --- not part of the Mexico/Carib. deal. As per Curtules above, you must activate international roaming or you won't have any service at all.
