Two weeks in Costa Rica. Do I need a translator?


I’m traveling to Costa Rica for a long holiday. It’s not going to be my first visit in the country. The first time I was there, I was attending a romance tour so I didn’t really have that many problems during my stay. This time I’m going alone. The problem is that I have already forgotten about the very few Spanish words I’ve learned during my first trip.

I was wondering if I should get a private translator to stay with me during my whole stay. At least that person can also be my guide around, directions and all. Can anyone suggest an affordable agency where I can hire an interpreter? Would they charge per hour or per day? I’ll be staying for two weeks so it might hurt my budget a lot.

Any advice from you guys? Will really appreciate any response. Thank you so much.
