    Does anyone grow in Costa Rica? I am planning a move there and I wonder whether I can buy what I need there or would I have to import stuff? I am mostly worried about lights and fertilizer. I know it is outrageous to ship anything to Costa Rica, though I don't know why.

    I HAVE KNOW PERSONAL KNOWLAGE, BUT, MOST LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES USE THE NEPOLIONIC JUDICIAL SYSTEM ie; GUILTY UNTIL YOU PROVE YOURSELF INNOCENT.
    MOST COUNTRIES USE 240 VOLT AC, WHICH IS BETTER AS IT COSTS LESS AND YOU CAN USE SMALLER WIRE!!! SOUNDS BACKWARDS BUT TRUE AS THE AMPERAGE IS LESS!!!.

    i have been there, i know the laws and i know the set up i want to use. electricity is the same as the states. i am no more worried about getting busted there than i am here. and if i were to get busted there the penalty would most likely be exile from Costa Rica for life, but that is not my concern. my concern is if I can buy lights and fertilizer and such in country. i know for a fact that shipping a package weighing 50 pounds from the US to CR is around $700. so buying on the net is out of the question. Does anyone Grow in CR past or present?

    Got this from WeBeHigh.com - Worldwide Marijuana Travel Guide Hope it helps...

    Smoking tolerance level: 4.5 out of 5


    Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in Costa Rica, and so is any related action.


    Law enforcement: If the cops see you smoking it they will bust you, but they will gladly take 10-20 bucks and let you go.

    I blew smoke in a cop's face accidentally while i was wasted, walking TO the bar, and he just smiled at me and told me to be careful.

    But are there Hydroponics Stores in Costa Rica?

    Costa Rica is a great spot for fishing, diving or hiking in the rain forest. I went on a whim a few years ago and i fell in love with it. I also met so really cool people. it always catches me off gaurd when someone asks me why i went to CR... lol

    I met a cab driver named Julio 8098-5449 in SJ, he's cool and he can give you some references for what you want.
