convertors and adaptors

Do you need convertors and adaptors in Costa Rica to plug in American things like shavers and phones?

The short answer is no. The only time I've found an issue is if you have something with three prongs as many of the outlets here only have 2...other than that...it's the same as in the US. :-) Enjoy!

No, it is the same voltage, plugs, etc as the US. All your items should work without any special adapters.
