After YEARS of research, I think I've found one of THE CHEAPEST pharmacies • farmacia around to buy Pharmaceutical Medications - BUT - it's NOT in Costa Rica - it's just north of us in Nicaragua. If you're on multiple (and expensive) medications, it may just be WELL worth it for you to make a trip there yourself!!
EXAMPLE:I went around to a few pharmacies to check the price on my blood pressure medication - Atenolol - 100 mg. In Costa Rica they ranged from 220-250-colones per PILL. I went to this place in Nicaragua and said "Here is $20 U.S.$s and $10 U.S. in Cordobas (the currency they use in Nicaragua) and they gave me OVER 3 YEARS worth of pills!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I THINK I got 8 or so boxes - 10 pills on a strip and 10 strips to a box - that's UNDER 4¢ a pill!!!

I MAY BE going to Nicaragua as soon as October 20, 2013 for a few weeks to a town about 1 hour away (by bus) from where I've found has the WAYYY CHEAPEST prices on pharmaceutical medication and between now and a few days before I go back to Costa Rica I will make a trip there to get prices for people interested - IF you make a DONATION for my time (a donation of what you feel this information is worth to you and to respect my time/efforts.

Please be ESPECIALLY generous if you're seeking information on more than 2 drugs as remember - this is taking MY time both to get there and back, talk to the pharmacist, find out if they have a generic version and return back to the village where I'm staying.
When I go next, I'm going to try to find a doctor that speaks English that can write you a local script/prescription if you need one so you have a local contact if you decide to go one day.
