"Can I enter Costa Rica with a one way ticket?"

"All visitors must have an entry and exit ticket, whether it is by air or by land, as the case may be, as a requirement to entre (sic) the country." ICT (Instituto Costarricense de Turismo)

Travelers flying to Costa Rica on a one-way ticket -- or to any Central American country -- need verifiable proof of an “exit or onward ticket” before being allowed to board their flight and enter the country. By law, without the proper documentation, airlines can’t allow you to board, and Immigration won’t let you into the country. This policy is being strictly enforced.

"thanks for helping us out with buying the (bus) tickets, we were asked several times for tickets out of CR."
