Is the voltage the same as North America?

Yes, Costa Rica uses 110 – 120 volts, the same voltage as US and Canada. Plugs are typically the 2 pronged flat type so US travelers will not typically need a converter or adapter. Your blow dryer, curling iron and other small appliances will work fine. Those of you from Europe, it’s best to bring your own adapter as they can be hard to find easily in Costa Rica.
