Exchanging travel money at the airport is not recommended at all when buying Costa Rica Colons.
To understand how currency exchange works, think of any retail store that trades a product to you as an individual. The business buys wares from a provider known as wholesaler at a purchase price, to which it sums up a profit margin.
The difference between the final price at which the consumer buys in that store (eg your colons from Costa Rica) and what it cost the business to get those colons from Costa Rica is the benefit it obtains in that currency exchange.
Nevertheless there is a distinction in currency exchange with other businesses. On balance, foreign currency notes (colons from Costa Rica in this case) rotate from hand to hand, that is, they are not consumed.
Therefore, it may be the case that a bank or currency supplier buys colons from Costa Rica from a tourist who enters Spain (earning a profit) and those same colons from Costa Rica become yours when you obtain that currency (new profit margin).
Normally, holiday money suppliers in Spain have high limits for a single online order of colons CRC or any other currency. These maximum quantities are imposed by the Banco de España. They have to do with the money laundering prevention regulations and Know Your Customer (KYC) demands

Normally, when you change colons CRC at a bank branch, they will already know their customers and you will only have to identify yourself as a client of your entity.
If you change colons CRC at a travel money supplier´s outlet, on the street or at the airport, you will have to provide a valid and current identity document (resident´s ID card (DNI or NIE) or passport in Spain). Take into account that your driver's license cannot be accepted as a valid document when changing Euros to colons CRC.

In Spain, travel money providers and some banks are starting to offer online currency exchange services to their users with 3 delivery alternatives:
a) buy and pay online and be handed the currency at home/the office or collect it from a store of the courier company (Correos, MRW, Seur, Nacex, etc.). Some of them will allow you to pay cash on delivery when you will be delivered the travel money in hand.
b) make a reservation for colons from Costa Rica. Afterwards choose an office of the provider where to pick it up from (prior online payment with a card).
