I have spent a lot of time in San Josebut had an extra day and night to spend in the city. As such, I looked for ideas as to what I could do that was a little bit out of the ordinary. I wanted to write a story on San Jose, but was lacking creative material. For those who do not know the laws of Costa Rica, prostitution is a completely legal trade, and one that is quite prevalent, especially among foreign travellers. As long as a girl is of age, has proper identification listing when her last medical examination was, prostitution is a common, if not endorsed, trade in the country.
Thus, the majority of women in the trade use massage parlours, strip clubs, and hotels like the Hotel del Rey as not only their office, but their source of protection. For the record, I want to state that I am in Brothel in costa rica way neither condoning or endorsing prostitution in this post. As I step through the glass doors of this famous hotel my heart races as I know that everyone outside the doors, as well as inside, thinks they know the reason I am there. I walk to the reception desk as a pre-season NFL game plays on the television and smoke hangs gently in the air above wooden tables and green casino felt.
As I register in the book of the hotel I can feel eyes upon me, both from foreign men and the women that sit grouped together at tables smoking cigarettes. I check into my room and enter the huge space. As the digital clock on the nightstand beside me flickers to remind me that the evening is approaching I feel my stomach rumble from hunger and know that I have to come out from my hiding spot to find food and drink. Why did I come here? My journalist curiosity has driven me to spend a night among the weary. I leave the hotel with my head down, hoping no one will recognize me, even though I am in a foreign land, or perhaps just hiding my shame.
When dinner ends, I race up to my room trying not to look around the scene which Brothel in costa rica starting to build in activity in the hotel. My two sides begin to fight with themselves as they always seem to do in these types of situations. It is telling me that I can still write an article about this place without going downstairs. I pack up my computer and breathe deeply before dipping the electronic key back into my pocket and sneaking out of my room quickly.
I walk into the main lobby of the Hotel del Rey and again feel eyes upon me. Everyone seems occupied. A couple of young women sit at Brothel in costa rica bar flirting with a man no older than A table of older men, obviously American are sitting to watch the Sunday NFL football games decked out in their team gear. I scan the scene quickly, without trying to look like a target and decide that the casino is probably my best bet for seclusion. Stunning, nearly all of them. I wonder what gets them into this.
A friend of mine told me that the majority of them are girls trying to get themselves through university. I would watch from a distance, like a bad journalist, until it was time to run and hide in my room for the night, alone. The older men sit at the tables with the women, laughing, touching, flirting, drinking, while the young guys head right Brothel in costa rica the counter at the Rey with their girl and head upstairs.
The bartender is the most beautiful woman I have seen in my life. I sit and order my drink, the 7 year special reserve, and sip it gently while wondering what she must think of all this. Does she get involved? I turn them down politely while joking shyly with them that I have no idea what type of companionship they are talking about.
I take the last bit of my drink and thank the waitress and wish her a good night. As the elevator doors begin to close I hear a shout to hold them.
A man enters with a girl on both arm. He thanks me and then asks me where my girl is. As the elevator doors open on the 3rd floor and they say their goodbyes as I Brothel in costa rica to the 4th. I slide the key into the electronic reader and look at my big empty room. I am shaken by the realization of why some men engage in this: the world can be a lonely place sometimes. As my eyes begin to weaken I hear the sound of a woman faking her pleasure and a man announcing his own in a room nearby.
I roll onto my side, place the pillow over my ears and attempt to shut the noise out. I wake up at 6 in the morning pack my bags, and head out of this infamous hotel. In the lobby, it is business as usual. Tsk, tsk Brendan. I will tell you one thing. So flipping true, as if he passed up on an opportunity like that when your whole story is about how great the place is and why did you go in the first place. I loved this post! Great story—really kept me reading.
Refreshing look at things…. Lisa — Glad you liked it. On the contrary, is there anything interesting, new or unexpected in the article? I am sorry to say that but I am slightly disappointed. Just another story without any progress and point. I really felt that conflict between wanting a story and being a gawking voyeur. Did you get your photo print?
Puralator ed me to say it had been delivered. Kelly; How your photo shows you are another oldy moldy female who plays such as princes of dreams as if you have only 17 years of age! Get a life and do not judge others pleasure woman! Old age is Karma to people like you. Christy — When I was at the table another woman ed me who was dressed about as scandolously as you could. I think if you were a foreign girl there the guys would hit on you, and probably, the girls would hit on you too. Really interesting post! I had never heard of this place before nor did i know prostitution was legal in Costa Rica.
Is it right or wrong? Prostitution is a quandry in my mind. On one hand I hate the fact that beautiful young women feel the need to do it to make ends meet. Two adults can do whatever they want as long as they do not hurt anyone. If a women makes the choice to sell herself, I am not going to be the one to tell her not to. I think you went about this piece the right Brothel in costa rica. Actually, I think it is interesting because you went in with preconceived negative ideas and ended with a certain understanding.
Well done. Ted — You have the same idea of prostitution that I do I think. Thanks for taking one for the team to share this with us, haha. It is nice to see an objective, factual post about prostitution — interesting read! Laura — This was definitely one of the more difficult articles for me to write. Great insight and observation into their world.
With any issue, there are pros and Brothel in costa rica. Either way, it must be tough to observe in first person while not losing money. Good job! I was really nervous about posting this, after stumbling across this just googling about the hotel, but myy curiousity got the better. I was wondering…have you done any research or found out more about Hotel del Rey after leaving?? I was in San Jose for almost 4 weeks and got to see this place. It still haunts, and sometimes angers me. We worked with a lady who has been going down there for years on friday or saturday nights to pray on the corner across the street til midnight.
You get to meet a lot of the guys Brothel in costa rica hear Brothel in costa rica pretty interesting stories. Just recently lawyers are looking into it again. Believe it or disagree, say what you want…this place WILL come crashing down, someday. Sooner than later i would say. I think you took that small profit and spent it on something nice. Nice try, maybe your girl will believe you.
Very good read Brendan, I loved the story telling and that ending. Brothel in costa rica am from Costa Rica. I know and completely understand what you try to communicate here. I like your point of view and unbiased review of the situation here. You are telling no lies and as a Costa Rican myself this kind of places ashamed me. Thanks for the comment Marco. The issue of Costa Rica prostitution is interesting… as is the case in general about prostitution.
Thanks for reading. This is a very interesting read. I admire the fact that you actually had the courage to step into that hotel. I just came back from Costa Rica 3 months ago. Its very revealing that its not only older men but younger ones as well because I, like many others, had this preconception in my head that its only older men and mostly Americans to be honest.
One thing that shocked me in Costa Rica is that it is not frowned upon. Which makes me think its either well regulated or just part of the culture there. One thing I noticed is that in Brothel in costa rica Jose centre especially on Fridays and Saturdays, there are a lot of prostitutes walking around whistling at you and trying to make advances.
Personally it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. Its refreshing that there are some decent men out there. I found out my boyfriend visited this hotel which he claims to not know was a brothel. I am 3 weeks away from my visit to Costa Rica! Started off with an adventure group of 6 men and 13 women that initially met in San Jose airport hotel, then ventured off on excursions around La Brothel in costa rica and Samara beach!
Loved doing the rappelling through the canyon, the horseback riding near the volcano, then the Bali hot springs that rivals most any oppulent play parks! Then the white water rafting and zip-lining, that brings one to the brink of fear, but you are overcome with the beauty that averts that fear! And finally back to the airport hotel for exit from the country!
However I chose to stay an extra week on my own! Being brought up in the Northeast Boston area and so much wanting to get away from the same delineated attributes I defined earlier, I simply wanted to be around provocative women that were very honest about what they wanted and seemingly enjoyed doing it!Brothel in costa rica
