paseo millonario
 n.— «Banco de Costa Rica said in a press release that night-time ATM operations represent only 7 to 8 percent of transactions. For the most part, these three banks have taken the security measure due to the common practice of “paseo millonario,” or “millionaire ride,” a term for the random kidnappings of people around holiday season where assailants take their victims to various ATM locations and take all of their money.» —“ATMs shut down late at night” by Vanessa I. Garnica Daily News (San José, Costa Rica) Dec. 5, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
