What is the Exchange Rate in Costa Rica?

The national currency is the Costa Rican colón.  It is traded against the US Dollar and the rates vary from day to day but usually hover around 550 colónes for each USD.  So for a rough ‘in your head’ estimate, converting colónes to USD  is a simple matter of dividing by a thousand and doubling the result.  For example, a 5,000 colónes bill = roughly $10 USD.

For those who want to be more accurate, just take the value of the bill, in this case $5,000 C, and divide it by the daily exchange rate, which is in this example is 550.  Therefore the result will be 5000 / 550 = $9.09 USD.
