Beach carts are a tradition in Costa Rica and high season is cart season.
They sell cold drinks and snacks.
My favorite are the freshly roasted marañon (cashew nuts) that come in a cellophane tube.
But the most popular carts sell Copos – hand shaved ice, topped generously with colored sugar-water
and garnished with a big glop of sweetened condensed milk. Yucchh! But the kids love them and I’m sure I probably did too.

After reading your post and looking through the pics, I have an urge to return to CR! Looks like some great new things are popping up in Samara!
Come on down! Maybe on your way back from Europe you can loop through.
I think about 800 colones or $1.60. But I’m not sure cause they’re too sweet for me.
What’s the average cost of a shaved ice or drink? Is it cheaper or about the same as in the States?
