Is It Safe To Eat the Local Fruits and Vegetables?
It is very safe to eat the fruits and vegetables in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is an agricultural society - there are thousands of small farms throughout the country that grow produce to sell at farmers markets, along the side of the road, or to local supermarkets. In fact, the fruits and vegetables are excellent - we recommend exploring local markets or even roadside fruit stands to both see and sample the diversity of Costa Rica's agriculture. From the beaches of Guanacaste to the mountains in the Central Highlands, you won't have any trouble finding an abundance of fruits and vegetables to enjoy during your trip in Costa Rica.
