They charged ¢3,000 ($5) For Crossing Illegally Into Costa Rica

Two men, a Nicaraguan and Costa Rican, were detained for human trafficking in the northern border with Nicaragua

The Policía de Fronteras (Border Police) at the Los Chiles border post with Nicaragua, in the north, detained two alleged human traffickers on Friday.

The Costa Rica–Nicaragua border is the line of 309 km long, east-west direction, separating the north of Costa Rica’s territory of Nicaragua, extending between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. It passes almost directly on Lake Nicaragua and the River San Juan.

The men were surprised by the border police when they were entering the country through an illegal crossing with a group of nine Nicaraguans.

Apparently, the men offered Nicaraguans, the nine and other, their services of moving them through the border to the town of Los Chiles for a mere ¢3,000 colones (less than US$ 5) per person.
