Land Line Phones will have a 2 added to the front of the current number, and Cell Phone (Numbers starting with 3, 8 or 9) will have an 8 added to the front. We have attempted to corrected the number change in all listings in this site.

Costa Rica Moves To An Eight Digit Telephone Number

The Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) will begin at 12:01am March 20 use an eight digit telephone number system, both for fixed line and cellular telephones.

Beginning on March all fixed lines phones - residential and commercial - will begin with a "2" and all cellular telephones will begin with an "8".

The new numbering system will allow the state institution to expand the current and the future system being called Sistema Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (SNT).

On March 20, All fixed line numbers beginning with "2", "4", "5", "6" and "7" will all begin with "2". For example, the telephone number "231 3205" becomes "2231 3205".

All cellular numbers beginning with "3" or "8" will all begin with "8". For example, the telephone number "399 9642" becomes "8399 9642".

JACO

At just seven meters above sea level, the city of Jacó has a large beach for enjoying sea and sun. Its proximity to San José makes it one of the most visited beaches in the country by both Costa Ricans and foreigners. Jacó offers one of the most extensive selections of tourist services in Costa Rica.

Shaped in a pleasant curve, its four-kilometer-long beach is bordered by hills at either end. Swimming with caution, due to strong currents, and surfing are the favorite activities here. Visitors can walk or ride horses along the beach, rent mountain bikes or scooters, or take a turn around a go-cart track. Boat travel is possible from Jacó to Playa Escondida, a well-known beach among surfers.
