❌❌ CostaRica - Why Costa Rica HATES #Gringos - EXPLAINED **Don't get hated on**
hey guys I'm Michael I'm from travel
Costa Rica NOW and I'm going to
tell you what Tico's don't like about us
gringos and when I say Gringo's I'm
talking about people from the United
States and that's it
gringos United States and I'm not
talking about what Gringo's are done to
the real estate and land values down
here that's another video other stuff
and I'm also going to tell you the worst
thing Gringo's do last so you want to
stay tuned because actually it's the
most important now the first thing I
learned this the hard way and pretty
batiko said so where are you from I said
well I'm an American he said so am i
hello North America Central America
people in United States do not have a
monopoly on America or American so they
know Christopher Columbus too so don't
learn that one the embarrassing way like
I did they also don't like that we don't
have any patience and it were time
oriented and we have this constant need
to move and do things well actually they
don't mind that we're like that they
just don't like us coming down and
pushing our a D D attitude on them
they'd rather us keep it either in our
mind or back in the United States now
guys the truth is Gringo's tend to be
loud and obnoxious not that Tico's can't
be loud if you've ever been to a bar
watching a soccer game they can be quite
loud but I'm telling you in a group if
there's somebody being obnoxious it's
probably a gringo whooping and hollering
drawn attention to themselves whoo-hoo
I'm a gringo I can be loud well they
don't really like that and it is
obnoxious so trying to try not to do
that they also don't like us
bad-mouthing their food all right
and I actually agree with them on this
now it's true that they don't like spicy
really that's Mexico they're not like
that here
but just because you went to a touristy
gringo price restaurant here doesn't
mean you know their food
you only know touristy Gringo's price
Restaurants menus food you know what I
mean so yes they have rice and beans as
a staple here just like potatoes is a
staple in most places in the United
States but believe me they do all the
stuff they got recipes they have fish
and things they dress things up it's
just you don't know it you know so
believe me the food is good down here
and if you don't think it's good just
bring a bottle of Tabasco sauce with you
I guess on your next trip now this next
thing is can be kind of racist whether
you are meaning it so or not do not say
you don't look like a Tico which
basically is you're referencing that
they look more white than they should
and that's kind of plaintive there it's
kind of playing into that whole what we
do to blacks a lot in the United States
where if they're lighter we 3/5 think
that they may be more intelligent or we
can relate to them better than the the
darker ones that could be sketchy and
less intelligent well that's obviously
way not true and it's way not true here
Chico's here are from white to dark and
everything between so don't do that you
don't look like a Tico thing it's it's
not good and it does sound a little
racist and discriminatory maybe even on
a subconscious level now I'm not going
to I'm not going to strike that if you
learn Spanish or you think you learn
Spanish before you come here and you're
talking to the waiter here and he
doesn't understand you it's because your
Spanish sucks
it's not as good as you think it is it's
not because he doesn't know Spanish he
lives here but don't get all pissy and
like you're talking great Spanish and
he's got the problem because he doesn't
understand you know you have the problem
because your Spanish isn't good it's
very offensive think about it in a
reverse situation if somebody was saying
that about your English all right and
the other funny kind of sad thing is if
a Tico doesn't know English you talking
slower doesn't mean he's gonna understand it
any better so can you get me a beer
you sound retarded don't do it it's
embarrassing it's embarrassing two
people from the United States so please
don't do that
okay this next one...

Just use COMMON sense when travelling the world and you will be fine. Speak little, watch and listen a lot.

This should be called "How Not To Be A Typical American Tourist"

I've been to Costa Rica 6 times on a surf trip, respect, treated people like family, smiled, tipped well, no problems!

Well, this advice should be applied for all travellers in any country.

I've been going to CR for almost 20 years and I think that the Ticos are some of the warmest most gracious people I've met in the 40+ countries I've been to.

i have lived in several latin American countries. I spent 9 years in Costa Rica BEFORE igot sick. I never had any problems with the Costa Ricans. They were more than happy to help me if I asked. They seemed to understand I was not to good at Spanish. Maybe it was the EL-GOOOOD-OOOO or EL-FUNNNO-OOOO . Maybre it was I was always smiling and happy, not drunk and obnoxious tryinhg .
I feel so sorry they have to contend with the high gringo prices for everything from cars, to chicken and fish. They are forced to unhealthy diets of rice and beans. . After the heart attack my Dr. said no more flying and no more moldy climets. I am stuck in the US till I die.
I still have a business running in Costa Rica. I have a young man I met running it for me. He is the son I never had. If not for him taking control of the businesses and how hard he worked to keep it going, it woukd not exist. . I trust him with everything we do.
The one thing I do most Gringos do not do is. ''PAY THE COSTA RICANS A FAIR WAGE AMOUNT FOR WHAT THEY DO"! Remember they have famlies to feed also. "You get what you give"

After reading all the responses, both sides need to get some help with manners, all this bad language does nothing but widen the gap. I am 70 years old and seen it all. what someone wears has nothing to do with what he has inside his heart and soul..

great video. I'm from Canada and just bought a house in Samara and I see this damn near every day. This video should be a pre-requisite for traveling to Costa and anywhere for that matter

They also wear sunglasses when it's cloudy.

I love how tourists always wear shorts in the middle of the city in the rainy season 😂😂😂

So phrases like
"How much is that in real money?"
"You don't understand. We are AMERICANS."
are not well received?

Keep rocking them safari outfits though it’s absolutely hilarious.
