I was traveling with my family for six weeks in Guatemala and Costa Rica. In Guatemala, it’s clear that one should not put anything in toilets except what they were made for. But in the more heavily visited Costa Rica, was that true too? As someone from the United States, where people flush lots of things, I read the signs closely to be sure.
Which of the signs below is most effective in communicating to users what belongs in the toilet and what doesn’t? Why?
1. At Monteverde Extremo Park, where our daughter bungee jumped.
2. At a mineral hot springs in La Fortuna, Costa Rica.
3. At a lodge and spa in Arenal, Costa Rica.
I will wait a couple of days for you to pick which you think is best and tell why. When I judge them, I think about the purpose and the audience. What do you think about?
It’s good to be back!
