Airport is generally the best place to either pick up a prepaid sim or phone and sim if your phone is not unlocked. Cell's cost around $30 and are basic phones with no data. SIM cards should run you from $5 to $20 and if you plan on only making local calls for a few weeks $5 will probably be plenty, but I would just spend the $20. International calls will go very fast, make sure you know the rates of the plan that comes with your SIM card... Do not assume, ASK!. If you want a data SIM be sure to say “datos” or “internet” when your making your purchase, again do not assume automatically that you will have data.
Internet Cafe's are very common in Costa Rica, the same goes for WIFI access, especially in tourist locations. Staying connected will not be an issue and in most internet cafe's the price will range from $1 to $8 an hour.
