Dear A.M. Costa Rica:
I agree 100 percent with the comments made by John Kounsconcerning items ordered over the internet. Occasionally I order parts for my computer over the internet. The item cannot be obtained here in Costa Rica, and they usually cost less than $10. My six month total for these orders does not even approach the allowed $500 /6 months allowed. Who even keeps track of the amount I order? The cost of traveling to the customs office to pick up the item is not worth it. The setting aside of the item to be picked up is solely by whim.
