Dress Codes in Costa Rica

Having basked in the sun (and roving tico eyes) for almost a year, I have never felt more at home here in San José then anywhere else. Westerners and fellow compatriots are getting their presence felt in Costa Rica. And being in this lush, tropical country, shorts have become common daily wear for me. I, an average Jane after all, am very lax with my fashion sense. On a typical day, I just put on whatever frock available in my closet (read: sloppy). That is, until I almost got into trouble last week.
