GETTING TO JUMP START COSTA RICA
"I was amazed at the sites and utter beauty of Costa Rica. I was able to go on six tours during my one month stay at Jump Start. I had a ball and accomplished more than my weight loss goals. I checked into the Jump Start Program, Costa Rica March 2012. I lost 23.5 pounds in 30 days. I'll definitely be back.

Most Costa Ricans speak some English, and, along with Costa Rican currency (colones), the US dollar is accepted in almost all stores and venues. There are ATM machines making travel and finance easy and convenient. (It's always a good idea to notify your credit card company of planned transactions outside the U.S.)
