    Thanks for all your help

    I got some great advice from you guys, that I know will save me many problems. I got talked into changing my plans by a good friend and I am now going to Santo Domingo, but my next trip will be to CR. Again thank you for the time in helping me with my first trip.

    How do we feel about the Sportsmans Lodge?

    Price? Quality? Distance from the action? Chica friendly?

    Hey joe roma. Chilimike here, I am a san jose vet and we will be in town nov 9th /16th the members before gave you some good advice, but the delrey for me isn't my bag. Room is over priced, 10 chica fee will get old and really you want to see the town. We are staying at the sportmens and its cheaper, better rooms, no chica fees and we booked 3 rooms and only 2 are going. Daytime walking is 99% safe but is better to have a wingman with you while you explore the city.

    Nighttime 100% taxi, no and I mean no walking. The walk from the delrey to the morazan is even getting a little funky. If you want to hook up shoot me a pm and at least have a few beers with us (being solo sucks as with most of us our first trip is solo)but really alot of the fun for me was finding the cheap bars where I am only the only gringo in it. Yes over 18 trips and really no concerns, but on my last trip I got lazy and let my little head do all the thinking and was robbed at knife point for 90 bucks but it got me to keep my safe hat on at all times. And feel I will be extra safe on this trip. That first 5 mins you are in the delrey. You think that's what heaven will look like if you make it. As for me. Maria blowjob grab me before the other 20 daytime sharks could get me. And 1 hour and and 50 bar tab later. She proved why she is called Maria blowjob.

    You need to stay at the Del Rey. Based on what you posted do not consider any other option. After your first trip there are many choices. You will pay between $75 and $130 a night.

    When I stay at the Del Rey I like the 6th floor ($130) because of the balcony, window and fresh flowing air. You will be perfectly safe but it's best to hook up with a like-minded friend to travel with. It's way safer and a lot of fun.

    Oh, practice your spanish and be willing to learn. How else are you going to really have fun in a country that speaks spanish?

    hasta luego e ciao,

    When you arrive in SJO exit your plane and walk to immigration. Get your passport stamped and head to baggage claim. After you get your bags you will want to get a taxi. Do not get one outside. Walk to the window (before you go outside) and pay your money. Look for the guys with badges around there necks. It is a standard fare something like $21 to the Del Rey (they will know where it is at)

    I have been to SJO a few times last year. Everything you would need will be at the DR. They even have some day trips like ATV tours and the Zip line tours you can book there and will pick you up outside. They have a really bad azz breakfast across the street at the Key Largo bar. It is directly across the street from the DR. I always start my morning with a nice cup of cappuccino from one of the hott bar girls then head across the street to the Key Largo and have my breakfast.

    When you are inside the DR you are safe as can be. They have security posted everywhere in there 24/7. When you are outside you are on your own. Don't take a taxi that is parked along the curb outside the DR. They are not honest. Just grab one that is passing by on the same street and ask them to turn the meter on " Maria por favor (SP? )"

    The DR will have women 24/7 and there is no real need to ever leave the place if you don't want. The daytime action can be quite good, but I have noticed it doesn't really pick up until around noon.

    I love the Del Rey. It is something like 90-100 USD a night (when I stayed) and if it is your first time you cannot beat it. It does get a little boring though and I can not stay in San Jose more than 3 days. There just isn't much to do other than screw your brains out.

    There are also a few massage parlors around town. I have personally not had much success at the massage parlors. They just aren't my thing when in San Jose. The quality is much better IMO at the Del Rey, but they are worth checking out defiantly.

    Do not walk anywhere at night take a taxi. You can walk to the Key Largo at night, but that is it. Do not wear jewelry, watches or anything of value. Carry a photo copy of your passport at all times when outside your room, they will make a copy at the front desk at the DR. They will also charge you 10 USD to take a girl back up to your room at the DR. Also DO NOT pay more than 100 USD for pussy down there. You can have ANY girl in the place for $100. Most can be had for $80. Bring plenty of condoms and lube. Do not get too wasted and make an azz of yourself. Do not pay more than $100 for pussy. Do not trust anyone down there.

    Have fun. I'm off to Rio De Janeiro Jan 21st-26th 2009. My adventure continues.

    Look into staying next door at Hotel Morazan. The hotel is a 15 second quick safe walk as there is always a lot of people around. The rooms run $45 per night as oppose to over $100 at the Del Rey. They don't charge for woman and it's a lot quiter. Just my 2 cents.

She had no problems with Nudes, but I do not post Nude Photos at all, period. Hope this helps..........
    She's adorable! I'm heading to CR in a few weeks and would like to look her up. When does she usually worK? You can PM me if you'd prefer.

    Possibly...

    ...but I don't think so. At the Sleep Inn Casino I put the money directly in my off-side flapped cargo pockets, which they avoided. I didn't flash it or count it (I saw the cashier count it out). Your points are well taken and that time is always a risk-point. In this case I'll go with my novia's thoughts (mirrored by another friend who is a local) - They saw the "fat" wallet, saw a rich gringo & the deal was done.

    Good points though & you may be correct.....

    Thanks.

    I think it is a good idea to minimize your time in the street after changing money. It is best to get back to your safe box or apt/hotel to unload the money there. Maybe they thought they were going to get some big money.
    P.S. I know how you feel. I was mugged in Rio De Janeiro at knifepoint with lots of people around--who did nothing to help. However I did not lose much, as I always carry a minimal amount. Instead of splitting the money between different pockets, I think it is best to simply carry the smallest amount possible.

How frequently were those chicas and gringos LEAVING the bar together? Were guys shopping around more carefully before they pulled the trigger? And how far did they push (and chicas let them push) in negotiating their prices? I think the chicas are in the best position to evaluate because they're the ones that see the bottom line (in their own pocketbooks). OTOH, chicas always like to complain about money.

    Regarding the first part of that quote, at the risk of rehashing a worn out topic, I'd like to offer a few new (or at least less discussed) aspects of it.

    1) Like I think we've said before these are all just opinions. You shouldn't care what other people think about a hotel if YOU like it. If you prefer to stay in "shabby rooms" and others prefer to compete over the few available rooms at the SL, how is one siding hurting the other? In fact, those guys competing over SL rooms should actually be glad that you're one monger who prefers to stay somewhere else.

    2) Here is just a thought. If the SL is always so full and so many guys are still willing to go to the extra bother of booking far in advance and the HDR much more often has space to put you despite its much wider fame, isn't that by itself saying something about the relative desirability of these places for many guys.

    3) I hesitate to suggest this because it may raise a firestorm of protest by the fans of the SL and I'm not even saying I would want it to happen, but if rooms are that scarce at the SL maybe Bill should really raise the prices. That's just Econ 101, excess demand over supply. If Bill raises his rates judiciously supply and demand will eventually reach some equilibrium where the place is still mostly always full but Bill is not turning away so many guys (and thus making more money for himself as well). At some point, the prices relative to the benefits of the place will be too much for some of the guys who will turn to other places (perhaps the HDR) while those who continue to stay there will be the ones who are most stuck on the place and willing to pay the higher rates. OTOH, do the much higher rates at the HDR (considering room quality) reflect demand or are they pricing themselves so that there is much more often excess supply?

    4) I've said this before that there are more than just 2-3 hotels to stay at in SJ, but I'd add this new wrinkle. If the SL is booked up for all or part of your stay or even if you're a HDR habitué, why not experiment with a different place for at least 1-2 nights of your stay or, if you're a regular CR visitor, even just every few trips. You might just find some place that doesn't have "over-priced shabby rooms" or rooms that you have to book a year in advance and that might become your new favorite.
    I have used Bill's services the last couple trips and never have a reservation and just show up. I was not turned away at the end of September. Even a friend I meet down there got a room when he just showed up no reservations. The best times are during the week and not just for a long weekend.

    Just my 2 cents

    All the chicas discussed a downturn in travel for the last twenty days. I really did not notice it. There seemd to be a lot of girls and a lot of dudes.

    Fantasy,
    In case you missed it, the post from Msaisme was directed at the "KiddieS" (plural) which includes BOTH of us and I'm certain reflects the attitude of the VAST majority of the board. Since it was posted, I've tried to stop and let it go, but here it is 3 days later and you're still playing with matches with these obvious references to our previous (and I thought dead) dispute. I HAD let you get what I THOUGHT would be the last word 3 full days ago (actually 2 last words since you took 2 posts to do it). Since then I've made at least 8 constructive posts to other members without so much as a veiled reference about you until this latest post of yours. I'd like to continue to do that.

    Unfortunately, your PM box is either full or somehow turned off so I'm left with no alternative but to post this here. Fantasy, PLEASE grow up, let it go and move on. That is what I've been trying to do. If you feel you absolutely have to respond to this, then PM me directly and spare everyone else your little jibes.

    DDD,
    First of all, I TOO am sorry to hear of your misfortune. Not "I for one", but I'm sure ALL of us are. However, I don't think you posted this looking just for sympathy anymore than any criticism.

    Your story certainly is "dramatic", but I don't see how that makes it a bad story or one that should not be told. Quite the opposite. It also may not be "typical" in the sense that most of the robbery stories you hear usually involve guys who fail to take all the precautions you took. But I think that is exactly why your own story is so important. It shows that even if you do everything right (or even nearly everything), things like that can still happen. The best ANY of us can do is improve our odds and minimize our possible losses but never completely eliminate them.

    Frankly, its hard to see anything you really did wrong. Your ideas to fine tune your tactics are just that - fine tuning. They might have reduced the chances of what happened to you or at least minimized the consequences, but if so I don't think by much. You were already wisely doing all the major things that any guy should do.

    So here are my "constructive ideas", if you can call them that, starting with the ones you already mentioned:

    1) Do all the things you were doing here,

    2) Try to remember to do the few minor things you think you slipped up on,

    3) And, sure while you're at it, add in the other new ideas you mentioned

    PLUS

    4) Accept the fact that no matter how many new ideas we come up with, all of us will at times slip up and let down our guard or forget some critical measure, no matter how "smart" or security conscious we think we are (it can happen to the best of us)

    5) Realize that even if you do absolutely everything you thought of before and everything we might dream up now, the best any of us can do is reduce our chances of getting hit or losing much if we do. Again, we can never totally eliminate all risk. Starting to think one has got on some sort of bulletproof vest by itself is an invitation to a nasty surprise, eventually.

    6) And, finally, most of any further things you might do to reduce your risks will come with trade-offs. For example, you could look back over your shoulder every 2 seconds, take cabs everywhere you go even if it is only 1 block during the day, or avoid bad areas like all of downtown San Jose altogether, but I don't think anyone here would seriously want to do any of that.

    Of course, I'm exaggerating a bit with those last few examples, but you see my point. Everyone needs to find their own balancing point between simply prudent safety precautions and becoming so paranoid about things that it detracts from their enjoyment of being there, between cost/convenience and risk/consequence. I hope that this experience makes you a little more cautious and safe but at the same time not so nervous about going around SJ that spoils your time while there.
