AngloINFO Costa Rica has added a new section to the site: Property. To help with this addition, we've put together some FAQs which we hope will be helpful for you. I’ve noticed some changes on AngloINFO – what’s going on? Well spotted! We’ve just released a new section called AngloINFO Property. It’s currently in beta (testing) mode so we’ll make a big announcement in the next few days when we’re confident that everything is working exactly as it should. In the meantime, feel free to look around and use it, and if you come across any issues, just let us know. firstname.lastname@example.org What is AngloINFO Property and why should I be excited about it? AngloINFO Property is the name of the new property section on AngloINFO. Here, you can search through hundreds of thousands of properties to buy and sell, to find the one that’s perfect for you. You can access the new AngloINFO Property section from anywhere on AngloINFO by clicking on “Property” in the top navigation bar. http://property.angloinfo.com/costarica In the new section, we’ve been able to introduce some great new features like Google Street View, Google Maps showing local amenities and email alerts for properties matching your search criteria. We’ve also improved the overall experience with more (and bigger) images and the option for related documents (such as floorplans) to be uploaded to the property listing. In addition, we have lots of Information Pages about buying and renting property to help you base your decisions on reliable facts. We’re pretty excited about all of this – and we hope you are too! Does this apply to Holiday Property as well as Residential Property? Yes! In AngloINFO Property you can search for (and advertise) holiday rentals as well as properties for sale and rent. http://costarica.angloinfo.com/property What will happen to property ads in the Classifieds? They remain unchanged for now but over the next few weeks they will be phased out as the functionality of the new AngloINFO Property section allows you to do so much more. What’s the best way for me to find a property to buy or rent, or a holiday property to rent, on AngloINFO? The new AngloINFO Property section has hundreds of thousands of properties all over the world for you to choose from, so we’d recommend you start your search there. Until we move all of our existing property classifieds over, you’ll still find some great properties in our Classifieds section too, so be sure to look there as well so you don’t miss anything. http://costarica.angloinfo.com/property http://costarica.angloinfo.com/classifieds Why can’t I add a new Classified to the Residential Property or Holiday Property categories? The new AngloINFO Property section offers many more features to help market your property effectively. Over the next few weeks we’ll phase out properties from the Classifieds altogether, so we’ve switched off the option to add new ones. We hope that you’ll advertise your property via AngloINFO Property and see the benefits for yourself. http://property.angloinfo.com/costarica/account/products I have a live Featured Classified on AngloINFO - what will happen to it? If you have a live Featured Classified, it will still show in whichever Classified category you paid for it to appear in. If your ad is still live when we switch off the property classifieds, we’ll migrate you over to the new AngloINFO Property section – but don’t worry, we’ll email you in advance to let you know what will happen. If you’d rather move your property ad to the new AngloINFO Property section now, just contact us and we’ll be happy to help. email@example.com What will happen to existing basic Classifieds? We hope that people with basic Classifieds will decide to advertise their properties in the new AngloINFO Property section! Eventually, existing basic ads will disappear when we switch off the property sections of the Classifieds but we’ll email everyone in advance so that they know what to expect.

My wife and I are coming to Costa Rica in February for two weeks. We're flying from Madrid to San Jose and then travelling down to Quepos to stay near the Manuel Antonio National park. Having never been before we wanted to ask a few questions and hoped someone could help... 1) Plugs / sockets -are they the same as the US sockets or will we need to buy adaptors when we arrive to charge and run our phones / shavers etc? 2) Money - should we bring Colones, US Dollars or a mixture of both? Do many places accept Dollars as well as Colones? 3) Tourist visa - presumably we fill this out on the plane on the way over do we? 4) Diseases - We've been recommended to have vaccinations against typhoid, malaria, diphtheria, hepatitis A & B and tetanus. Are these really all necessary? 5) Car hire - Do you recommend a car hire firm at San Jose? Or is there one to avoid? Thanks in advance! Malcolm
