Prostitution in Costa Rica is legal. Costa Rica 's legal system is based on Roman law rather than common law , and so for prostitution to be illegal it would have to be explicitly stated as such in a penal code, and it is not. Nevertheless, many of the activities surrounding it are illegal,  as the law forbids promoting or facilitating the prostitution of another, and therefore pimping , brothels , or prostitution rings are illegal. The large growth in sex tourism prompted the Government of Costa Rica introduce a voluntary  registration scheme for prostitutes.
Prostitution in Costa Rica - Wikipedia
Costa Rica is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor. Costa Rican women and children are subjected to sex trafficking within the country, and residents of the north and central Pacific coast zones are particularly vulnerable to internal trafficking. Authorities noticed an increase in adults using children for drug trafficking. Women and girls from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, and other Latin American countries have been identified in Costa Rica as victims of sex trafficking and domestic servitude. Child sex tourism is a serious problem, particularly in the provinces of Guanacaste, Limon, Puntarenas, and San Jose. Child sex tourists arrive mostly from the United States and Europe.
DOI: Abstract: The view that college students have about prostitution is poorly known, and the little research that is available has been done in the USA and Spain. Most students have a fairly realistic view of the phenomenon; most believe that people enter sex work through a combination of need and choice, that sex abuse is not inherent, that most sex workers have families to take care of with limited education. In regards to the clients most students believe the majority are varied in age, tend to have families and often become regulars. Our results are similar to those reported for Spain.
