@  ₱20 Bill : (20 June 2018 - 03:25 AM)

Thanks, @statusquo @bill44ca @hey you. Looks like a second trip to SM may be unavoidable. Will report back if I learn differently.

@  hey you : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

i live in the province dont check anything in never had a problem maybe because they know me on sight

@  statusquo : (19 June 2018 - 11:47 PM)

@bill44ca you are correct. I said size is a concern but they might put it off to the side and that is the only place I know of in SM that does this. Never know until u ask. @hey you not a bad idea but cumbersome cheers!

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 09:13 PM)

SM grocery will not let you in with bags/packages. Purses only no backpacks. My girl had a very small backpack and they made her check it. This guy was talking about luggage.

@  hey you : (19 June 2018 - 03:37 PM)

sm problem simple dont check your bags if they think your stealing let security stop you at the door on your way out

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 05:17 AM)

@p20bill if you take the Southern Cross bus they drop you off at your hotel

I would appreciate knowing how I can make a Costa Rica vacation possible for me and my Filipina girlfriend. Any advice, especially from guys that have traveled outside of the country with their Filipina gfs would be most appreciated. I am a real novice at trying to do this. So, assume that I know nothing. Like how difficult will this be? I have read that maybe it is better for me to come and get her as opposed to her traveling by herself. Is this true?

It is my understanding that a visa will not be required. My question is whether, because her trip may get routed through the United States whether she will need a visa to enter the United States? I am an American citizen and would either meet her in San Jose or at whatever point in the United States that she may have to travel through.

Additionally because I have not found any flights that are direct from Manila to San Jose, the flights are very long, for example Delta airlines flight to San Jose from Manila is more than 25 hours with multiple stops. Her return would take 44 hours. If you are aware of less time consuming ways to travel between both countries I would appreciate your help. Or is it possible to bring her to the United States and then us both travel together to Costa Rica? This would be a less time consuming and less costly option.

I would very much appreciate any tips, help or resources that you are aware of that will help me make this vacation possible for us both.

She will need a visa if her flight passes thru the USA, regardless if it is just a transit and she doesn't even leave the airport.

Just about the only country in the world that does that.

She won't be able to transit through USA. That requires a visa that she won't be able to obtain. She could transfer somewhere in Europe as long as she doesn't leave the airport, but the only place in Europe I can think of that might have flights to Costa Rica is Madrid. something like Manila-Bangkok-Madrid-San Jose would work in theory, but probably would not be cheap. Then there is the issue of her possibly being denied exit from Philippines immigration. Search this website for other threads talking discussing that issue.

Wow. I had no idea. I admit to being embarrassed by the travel freedom we folks from the United States enjoy.

No, that is not it. I will return to see her in Jan. It is that I have work to do in Costa Rica for the next six months and wanted her to join me. I did not want to wait so long to see her again.

Try to avoid the usa if there is a visa problem. Try to find a flight from asia (china, japan, etc) to a central or south america country (e.g., brazil,mexico, panama, venezuela, etc) then go from there to costa rica.

I have traveled with my girl to Singapore and Thailand....I was also looking for a location a little closer, but it is incredible how many countries require visa's for Filipinas. And those South/Central American countries that do not (like Brazil, Costa Rica, Colombia, etc), they have to fly via the US which requires a transit visa (impossible to get for them)......too bad!
