As to the legal and non-legal whore houses, many exist in the San José metropolitan area and most taxi drivers know their location. Prostitution is not prohibited in Costa Rica. The increase in the arrival of tourists has escalated prices so much so that many of the services are out of reach of the average Tico. Prostitutes apparently prefer the dollar rather than the local currency and it's said they've become very demanding. But beware! Going around these places is like playing with fire - health, safety and money-wise. Keep away especially at night from going around the area of Clinica Biblica as it's the hunting ground of San José's transvestites. Also try to stay away from the Zona Roja, north-northwest of the Central Market, during the day or night even though its permanently patrolled by police.

Regarding sex and the Costa Ricans, UNIMER, a research firm in San José, did in April 2005 a study for the daily La Nación on what the Ticos dream about. It revealed that the erotic dreams placed after nightmares, the ones dealing with happiness, those of falling in space and the ones about death and dying. Almost half of the Ticos interviewed said they have had an erotic dream sometime. It also revealed that 62% of the men reported they enjoyed very much their erotic dreams while only 28% of the women said they enjoyed them. La Nación frequently publishes studies regarding the idiosyncrasy of the Ticos.
