When I first arrived to Costa Rica on vacation, I was told by a local that there were only three phrases I needed to know in order to communicate effectively. They were:
- Pura vida: This can mean anything from "hello" to "goodbye" to "doing fine" to "life is good."
- Una más cerveza por favor: One more beer, please.
- Dónde está el baño?: Where is the bathroom?
Especially the 3rd phrase if you’ve used the 2ndphrase extensively!!
