cell phoneHi, Can someone tell me the best place to buy a chip for my cell phone near the airport? Two years ago I went to the offical cell phone store at the mall in Alajuela and it took over an hour. It was a long wait, and they wanted all kinds of information including my passport number. In Nicaragua, I just went a corner store, paid in cash and was out in minutes. Any information would be much appreciated.

3i think that kiosk in the airport is open until 10 pm. but -- if not, it's pretty easy to buy a sim card all around the country. they are now being sold at supermarkets, pulperias and shops of all kinds. just look for the little frog graphic and the name "kolbi." sadly, you will still have to show your passport, but it takes about 5 minutes all in all.
