Keeping in contact with people abroad leads to high calling rates & confusing calling criteria. Now, Talk360 makes calling Costa Rica simple & affordable. With the Talk360 VOIP solution, you can call Costa Rica at low per-minute rates.

To call a landline in Costa Rica from the United States, simply follow these easy to follow calling tips:

  • first dial 011, the U.S. exit code;
  • next dial 506, the country code for Costa Rica;
  • then dial the area code (1-2 digits. See a sample calling code list below);
  • and finally, dial the phone number (5–7 digits).

If dialing Costa Rica from on the globe, you just need to do the following:

  • place the exit code: It’s also referred to as the IDD code (International Direct Dialing) or ISD code (International Subscriber Dialing). For most countries, it’s 00 or +. For the USA and Canada, it’s 011;
  • phone code: Each country has a unique phone code;
  • area code: This is the code for a part of Costa Rica. It’s generally a simple area or a city;

Fun facts about Costa Rica

  • Costa Rica is home to more than 5% of the world’s biodiversity.
  • The sun rises and sets at the same time 365 days a year
    Due to Costa Rica’s close proximity to the equator, the sunrise and sunset are to be expected at the same time every day.
  • Nicoya is one of the blue zones on the planet.
    A Blue Zone is a special zone on Earth, where lifespan is noticeably longer than the rest of the world. Nicoya in Costa Rica is one such place. Centenarians are not unusual here, and most of the local residents can expect to live to at least 90.
  • Costa Ricans refer to themselves as “Ticos” and “Ticas”.
    Another interesting fact about Costa Rica and its citizens. While foreigners often refer to them as Costa Ricans, they themselves instead say Ticos for males and Ticas for females.

    Only Ecuador exports more bananas than Costa Rica. So when you go, make sure to eat some of those delicious local bananas!

    Pura Vida means pure life if you translate it literally from Spanish to English, but it’s more than that, it’s a lifestyle.

    Nearly 3 million tourists arrive annually, which has made tourism one of the leading sources of income for locals. Costa Rica is a Spanish speaking country and I recommend learning a few phrases in Spanish before your trip.

What are the Differences with Other Calling Services?

When looking at Talk360’s competitors, Talk360 functions in a different manner. First is its free test call. Get the app & be ready to make international calls. This way, you have the opportunity to see the reliable call quality of cross-border calls with Talk360 before you add call credit.

Another difference from most competitors is that the receiver does not need an internet connection. A person who receives a call doesn’t need to have the app on their phone & they don’t need to connected to the internet. This is a unique difference compared to several other calling apps! Also, you can call landline & mobile phone numbers using the app’s inexpensive international calling rates. Only the person who makes the call needs a Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, or 5G connection.

Next to that, Talk360 doesn’t require a contract or a new SIM card for it to be handy. You use your phone number as a caller ID. It is not necessary to get a different SIM. Next to that, Talk360 has more than enough training with a great helpcenter.

Now you know. Try Talk360 directly. Your first 1-minute call is free! Additionally, if you share the app, you both can get free credit as soon as the person you invited makes the first call credit purchase.
