Should I learn to use vos as I’m going to Costa Rica?

I am going to Costa Rica. Should I learn to use Vos? Or is it best for non-native speakers to stick to usted and maybe tú?

Hola Peter

In Costa Rica they alternate tú and vos, both as informal pronouns for "you singular" - so you will hear voseo there. But if you use tú (informally) and usted (formally) you are more than safe!

Also remember that you need to use "ustedes" for the you plural (in any situation, formal and informal) 

Enjoy your trip!

Saludos cordiales
