Why Move to Costa Rica

Living in Costa Rica is the ultimate expression of personal freedom. This oasis of unsurpassed beauty, eco-diversity, and "the perfect wave" is nestled peacefully between the warm waters of the Caribbean and the Pacific. Each year, surfers, retirees and adventurers are attracted to its shores to experience an unmatched quality of life, low cost of living and "Garden of Eden" features.

  • Costa Rica's current real estate boom is driven by investors and developers from around the world who view favorable tax laws, land affordability, and the country's democratic stability as key drivers for a sound investment.
  • .
  • Excellent, affordable health care by U.

    S.-trained, English-speaking physicians using state-of-the-art medical equipment. Many people come to Costa Rica from around the world for affordable cosmetic surgery.

    There are more Americans living in Costa Rica than Costa Ricans living in American. They have no desire to leave this peaceful, beautiful country.

  • .
  • Home to 5% of the Earth's known species in a country the size of West Virginia.

  • .
  • Travel writer Christopher P. Baker says Costa Rica has a proud history as Central America's most stable democracy (elections are so trouble-free that crowd control at polling stations is handled in part by school children).

    He describes how Ticos (as the friendly Costa Ricans are known) pride themselves as having more teachers than policemen. There is no army in this neutral country.

So with the soaring cost of South Florida and Southern California real estate, Costa Rica is an excellent alternate for those seeking a vacation home or retirement home with many of the same amenities as the USA at a fraction of the cost. This is why Costa Rica is becoming the logical extension of South Florida and Southern California for those still seeking tranquility, peace, and harmony at an affordable investment.
