When it comes to traveling Costa Rica there are 4 main things you want with a smart phone.

  1. Inexpensive
  2. Ability to be unlocked
  3. Water resistant
  4. Quality camera

Finding all of these in one phone is near impossible, until now.

The Motorola Moto G combines all these qualities into one phone.

Most importantly it’s inexpensive. It retails for only $179.99. That’s super important since you won’t have to worry to much if the phone gets lost or stolen.

It comes unlocked, which means you don’t have to go through the hassle and expense of paying somebody to do that for you. Once you get to Costa Rica getting a pre paid phone plan and SIM card is easy.

It’s water resistant. Which is helpful if your Costa Rica vacation includes white water rafting or beach time. Check out the video below to see the phone working underwater:

The 4th and probably most important thing is the picture quality. This phone takes amazing photos and videos and even has a slot for an additional micro SD card up to 32 GB to store all your vacation photos.

Here’s a sample of a photo I shot on the phone:


Tough to beat that quality!

And the good news is that the folks at Motorola are already working on the 4th edition that’s set to be released sometime summer 2016. The new phone is rumored to have a better microprocessing chip and an updated camera.
