LAUNDRY SERVICES / LAVANDERIA IN COSTA RICA
There aren't many places I've found in Costa Rica with COIN OPERATED / SELF SERVICE MACHINES - where you can go in and do your own laundry. I've posed this question on numerous message boards as well as trying to find anyone that could take my laundry to in case Goddess forbid, something happens to my washer/dryer in my guest house but so far, I haven't found many options and Dry Cleaners are out of the picture for me as they are often wanting to charge by the PIECE!!
If you know of any such places, please e- me at LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com
