Obviously my commentary was mostly tongue in cheek. I agree completely with you, to each his own. I was busting on Whitecat a bit because many times his posts come across as having an air of superiority to the visiting mongers who can’t be or don’t want to be as rigid as him and don’t hold fast to the low ball prices like he does.

That and his misguided opinion that what other people pay somehow affects him. Which is obviously not the case given the prices he always touts that he pays. I don’t know him and I’m sure he’s a nice guy to have a beer with and shoot the breeze. It’s all in good fun though there is some underlying truth to it in my opinion.

When you speak Spanish, the price goes down……try it.
That’s one thing that we both agree on. And Spanish speaking ability has zero to do with what I pay. I consider my Spanish to be at least as good as any non native speaker I’ve met in my travels and better than most. And yes, it helps a lot. Even more so in MDE where English is not as prevalent as it is in CR.

I don’t allow myself to get taken advantage of and I don’t let the chicas control the situation. I find it very easy to say next. Though many times I could easily play hardball and browbeat the chicas to drop their prices even further, I don’t get any thrill out of doing that. In fact, just the opposite. Especially when I consider the price to be both fair and a good value.

Like you I have regulars that I’ve known for years. And though I could lowball them and pay less, not only don’t I feel a need to do that I think it’s a shitty thing to do. Especially for a chica you’ve known for years and who obviously shows you a good time which is why you repeat with her on a regular basis. Which means that you must like her on some level. An extra $10 or $15 here or there makes zero difference in my life but does in theirs, even if it’s only for the short term. You should try it some time.

+1 for not low balling the ladies. Don't overpay or get taken advantage of but try to be fair.

While I appreciate the comments here, let me say this. These putas have different tiers of pricing based on the client. If she sees a brand new gringo who stands out like a sore thumb, she prices accordingly. She knows he is not only new to the game, but also understands he is talking to a much younger, pretty woman. She waits for the kill and strikes. I saw a gringo the other night at a bar getting milked like a cow. The babe he was with spoke zero english and had all her friends there drinking and eating. I could understand every word they were saying. No-one ever said a word to him. Speaking Spanish levels the playing field. I am fortunate to be fluid. I have mentioned here I have more than one friend who works at places like SL for cien and still comes and visits for 20k. BUT there are many who will not visit anymore because they know they can get a C note from the gringos. That is the ONLY basis of my comments for the cien boys.

I have also said if a gringo wants to spend cien on a babe for 50 minutes of love, good luck. I have been coming to Cr 20 years, and have lived here for 5. I have NEVER paid cien for a babe.

Learn the language.

If the gringo is a tourist, stayed within a vacation budget and left feeling like a rockstar. 8) 8) 8)
He has a bright future if he keeps visiting, learns more each visit, improves his skills (language AND awareness). :idea: :idea: :idea:

Speaking, or at least understanding what is being said, is important but it will not level the paying field on its own. You can use your ignorance or imperfect skills to your advantage, especially if you can understand what is being said. Retain control of the situation, know when to walk away, know when to run. :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:

Understand that for the rate you're paying your novia, even people in first-world countries would be lining up around the block if it were an ordinary job. Then realize the cost of living for normal people in Costa Rica is much, much lower, and you'll understand why your novia sees you as a cash cow and resents any lost opportunity to milk you for more.

If she’s still working, she doesn’t view “you” as a full time novio . You are a dependable client, probably enjoys working for while you’re there. The monthly stipends, helps keep the novia claim, giving you a better experience… GFE. Plus, you get the pics, maybe a few video chats and a feeling of happiness.

It’s all good, just enjoy. I would recommend looking at the reality, enjoy the fantasy.

If you want to test… simply cut off money next time you visit. See what happens. No way she’ll walk to the taxi without $$ if she’s working (in her mind)

This really explains a lot. When we were still getting to know each other she was obsessed with knowing how much I spent on other girls which struck me as an odd thing to ask about. How many times did I see X? Did they cook for me? Did I eat them out? :lol:

I know this - a female friend I have in Costa Rica told me this outright when she told me about this gringo she had been dating. He apparently cancelled on her hours before they were to see one another and bluntly told her the truth as to why: his ex was in town.

She was devastated. I felt sorry for her but what shocked me was her telling me she wished he had lied to her.

I was hoping my hovia could grow beyond this mentality, since you can't get far in life if you won't look at reality.

I guess she's a lost cause though. She tells me she's going to immigrate to the US even without any of my help. I try to explain all of the strict requirements even for a tourist visa. And her response is anger, frustration, and cries of "why are you so negative? I am positive...!"

:roll:

Thanks for all the replies, lots of good info to chew on during my upcoming trip.

If you read and follow the advice I've given here at the bottom of the page, you won't have any more problems with hoz here, just sayin... :mrgreen:

You've taken more time trying to figure this one out than me and the couple hundred I have comported with over almost two decades now... :mrgreen:

Isn't a couple hundred more like a month's average for you? :?

No, not at my ancient fading age, 2 to 3, maybe 4 a month keeps me going and two out of that group are two favoritas I've known and rotated over three years.

I've been coming here since 2003, and on my visits, always at the grand dame the HDR, me and my buddies typically got 2 to 3 daily with some favoritas sleeping over and a threesome each trip each, then around ten years ago I lived here 2 years working for an international company, happy with one a week on the average.

When I retired here for good, three and 1/2 years ago and moved downtown, for about a year 2 to 3 a week was my obsession, really over doing it celebrating my retirement, but after moving out to Escazu and no longer in the limelight 8 days a week, and Covid appearing, I pretty much retired from the scene and reverted to my trained sugar Babi*s routine I had perfected in Florida, with only an occasional stray when I get a wild hair.

Having imaginary g/f's who know you well and you know them is fun, it's more like a "date" when you get together...

Living here as opposed to vacationing here, for me at least, is like when I lived in Florida a max 15 minute walk from the beach, you don't go that often when you know it will always be there, I usually went just 3 or 4 times a month, lol... :mrgreen:
