My wife and I are excited to be planning our first trip to Costa Rica. We've read several warnings about petty theft and are aware of what we need to do to lower our risk factor.
Here is my concern. Actually more my wife's concern than mine.
She told a friend that we were planning a trip to CR and her friend advised her to reconsider. According to this "friend", it would be uncomfortable if not actually unsafe for her to go to CR as she is a blue eyed blond.
This is no joke. The woman is serious and it unnerved my wife to the point that she is having second thoughts about going.
Has anyone ever heard of this, or is it total BS.
Thanks for any reply you can offer.
