What do I need to do to use my phone with Verizon prepaid while I am in Costa Rica, or - if nothing - how much will roaming fees cost?

Prepaid plans cannot use roaming in most of the world (this is true for other carriers as well).

International Prepaid Phones & Plans | Verizon Wireless

COsta Rica isn't on the list of included countries. 

HOwever, most Verizon phones are capable of using a local SIM card because they are unlocked by default.

check with support to see if your phone is unlocked and can be used with a local SIM card when you go to Costa Rica.

How exciting Minakyn. I am so jealous I wish I was going to Costa Rica. Let’s partner up and make sure you stay connected. What model Iphone do you have? Have you reached out to Prepay yet? If not, please reach out to Prepay at 877-777-5759 for eligibility and pricing.
