Every culture has different ways of doing things and as soon as you move to Costa Rica, you will find out that a lot of things are different than they were back home. Sometimes we just assume things are done our way (and we think of course it's the best way) and they're not, we don't even find out until it's too late.
But wasn’t that the first reason you moved here? You wanted things to be different, right?
Shopping is one of those things that’s quite different from what you are used to and there is to learn a lot about it. Especially when you go shopping in a Costa Rica grocery store, you should be aware of several issues that are quite a bit different from back home.
Some who read my weekly blogs have probably figured some of these issues already out, but I hope I can help at least some of you with these tips.
