In search of buttermilk in Costa Rica

I know we could use the old milk & lemon juice or vinegar trick. I'm just curious - do they use buttermilk in local cooking? Could I find it in the markets?
We practically had a scavenger hunt for wheat flour, but I wish USA supermarkets had employees this helpful!

  1. Buttermilk is readily available at grocery stores. It is called leche agria. It is always by the milk in a white and light blue carton.
