How to Call Costa Rica from the U.S.

Sick of over complicated calling cards and bizarre cellphone dialing schemes when making a call to Costa Rica?

Well no more! Use our easy “How To Call Costa Rica” guide.

To call Costa Rica from USA, just follow these simple dialing directions:

  • Primero marca 011, el código de salida de los EE. UU.
  • Next dial 506 – the country code for Costa Rica.
  • And finally the local phone number – 8 digits.

If the Costa Rican number you’re dialing starts with a (+), what then?

A handful of international numbers use a plus sign before the main country code.
For example, for calling Costa Rica from the U.S. with Vonage, you can replace the “+” with 011, but either works.
