We'll help you to get the best Costa Rica Colon exchange rate

We compare the Costa Rica Colon rates from dozens of the UK's biggest currency suppliers including the Post Office, supermarkets, high street banks and specialist online travel money providers, so you can see in an instant who is offering the best deals after commission and delivery charges have been accounted for. Many of our travel money affiliates also offer our customers exclusive exchange rates that are even better than if you go to them direct, and on average our customers save £59 when they compare with us.

Generally speaking, specialist online travel money providers and bureau de change offer the best Costa Rica Colon exchange rates, followed by the supermarkets, the Post Office and then the banks. The absolute worst rates of all are found at the airports so try to avoid buying there at all costs. If you're short on time and need your currency in a hurry, check out our Click & Collect Costa Rica Colons page to find a local supplier near you.

Costa Rica Colon rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Costa Rica Colon has increased by 4.65% from 699.798 on the 22nd July to 732.316 today. This means £750 will buy you ₡24,388.50 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the Costa Rica Colon hit a high of 769.563 on the 15th October and a low of 683.19 on the 15th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Costa Rica Colon exchange rate history page.

The Costa Rican Colon is the only currency in the world that is named after a real person: Christopher Columbus. Travellers to Costa Rica should budget about £70 a day because Costa Rica is considered the most expensive of the Central American countries to visit.

When you are in Costa Rica you should not wear jewellery or carry large amounts of cash. Take particular care of your belongings in hostels and hotels. Lock valuables in a hotel room safe. You should also not use street money-changers.

The US Dollar is widely accepted all across Costa Rica, but if you are backpacking or trying to do Costa Rica on a budget you should take Colons with you as bus services and street vendors often do not take US Dollars.

Before you travel to Costa Rica you can get advice from the UK Government website

If you hold a British passport you don't need a visa to enter Costa Rica for up to 90 days. If you wish to stay for longer than 90 days, or if you plan on working in Costa Rica, you should check the latest entry requirements with the Costa Rican Embassy.

You must provide evidence of onward or return travel upon entry to Costa Rica, otherwise your entry may be refused. In addition all travellers must pay a departure tax of $29 USD when leaving the country by air. You can pay this by cash or card in either US Dollars or Costa Rica Colons.

Prepaid Costa Rica Colon Cards

Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in Costa Rica and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
