On Central Standard Time !!
Measure twice, cut once. ~ carpenter’s ruleCosta Rica remains on Central Standard Time year-round. Weights, measures and temperatures are metric. Gasoline is sold by the liter and distances are measured by kilometers. Dates are expressed with the day first, followed by the month. For example, Christmas Day is written 25/12. Often, hours are posted in military time, a 24-hour format. Two in the afternoon is 14:00, 10 at night is 22:00. If you’re confused about it, simply subtract 12 hours from the time given after noon until midnight.
