|Uno Mil Tienda – One Mil Store
I walked by this one in Alajuela today with a colorful sign.
Everything in the store costs ₡1,000, one thousand colones, $1.76 at today’s conversion rate
$1 USD = ₡568 Costa Rica Colones
Alajuela, Costa Rica
There are several of these in Alajuela and in San Jose. We have a little one, more like a booth between two stores. Everything costs an even one mil colones, tax included. A good place to get a pair of cheap sunglasses you know you will lose of break anyway! 🙂

One Mil is our smallest paper billet. Anything smaller is coins.
