Child prostitution estimate appears to be overstated

A response to the letter from Salvando Corazones.  In the last 21 years, I have spent at least three months per year in Costa Rica, mostly in and around San José.  Only once was I ever approached by child prostitutes.  On the way to my hotel in the late night, there were three teens near the metal school in Parque Espana who approached me for paid sex.  I told them to go home to their mommies.

My question is,  “Where are the other 2,997 child prostitutes?”  Looks to me like the Salvando Corazones “facts” are well overcooked.  Have any of them ever visited Beautiful Costa Rica?  If not, I recommend that they try it.
