we have just been told by the bureau de change at marks and spencer in england(camberley branch) that they cannot sell us colons as they are not allowed to be exported from the UK or imported into costa rica.
we were not aware of this and have since found no evidence to support their claim.
however they are a venerable institution in the retail sector in the UK and as such are very influential re future choice of vacation venue.
so what do you all think, or indeed know??
