Get a local IP and security benefits with a VPN for Costa Rica

Data protection from snoopers

Data protection from snoopers

Problem: Your online activity benefits big data companies, your ISP (Internet Service Provider), and the government.

Solution: A VPN encrypts (hides under code) your internet traffic and protects it from any extra pairs of eyes prying on what you do online.

Enhanced online privacy

Problem: Your IP and location can help data giants build profiles about you (your interests, opinions, health searches, etc.)

Solution: A VPN changes your IP address and hides your location so no one knows where you’re browsing from or who you are.

Enhanced online privacy
Safe access to public Wi-Fi

Safe access to public Wi-Fi

Problem: Public Wi-Fi is lovely, but it’s not secure, and Wi-Fi hotspots are easily faked and compromised by hackers.

Solution: A VPN connection encrypts your data before it leaves your device, making your connection impossible to spy on.

Home internet wherever you go

Problem: Some internet content may not be available in certain regions because of restrictions and censorship.

Solution: Connect to a VPN server in your country and browse as if you were at home, with access to your favorite content and media sites.

Home internet wherever you go
Cheaper online shopping

Premium vs. free VPN

Premium vs. free VPN

You should stay away from free VPNs.

The best-case scenario when using a free VPN is getting slow connection speeds and an overwhelming amount of intrusive ads.

In the worst-case scenario, your data may be sold to third parties, and your device may be infected through malware or malvertising.

You will always be better off with a premium VPN like Surfshark, both in terms of the quality of service and your online privacy.

Can you be tracked even if you use a VPN?

A VPN can’t protect you from being tracked if you’re not careful about the information you provide online. A VPN hides your activity and IP address, but it won’t stop you from posting personal details on social media or voluntarily providing information on websites.

Why should I pay for a VPN?

Free VPNs tend to have a limited server selection, heavily limit bandwidth, and offer slow connection speeds. On top of that, they may bombard you with ads or even sell your data to third parties. 

In every case, a paid premium VPN will provide a much better, more secure experience than a free alternative.

Will my internet slow down while using a VPN?

Your internet connection could slow down when you connect to a VPN. 

You might not notice much difference in speed when using a premium VPN, especially if you connect to a server that’s near your physical location. 

However, if you use free VPNs with crowded servers or connect to a VPN server thousands of miles away from your current location, your connection can slow down significantly.

Is it legal to use a VPN in Costa Rica?

Yes, using a VPN in Costa Rica is legal.
