Fortunately, we do not have much graffiti. This is not unauthorized graffiti, of course, but an outdoor painting providing a storybook image of a policeman helping some children, framed by the mountains and the colors of the Costa RIcan flag.
There was somewhat of a graffiti scandal in our area of Costa Rica a few years ago. Graffiti with a painted skull and cross bones above the word "Gringo" appeared along the roads. Newspaper articles reflected concerns of the communities that this graffiti would be offensive to tourists, who are crucial to the economy.
An investigation finally caught the people doing the graffiti. They were not locals who resented tourists. They were several young Americans who were advertising their tee-shirt brand, which was called Gringo.
