Living in Costa Rica

Living in Costa Rica

Living in Costa Rica has various topics, which I will be adding pages for.  I want to give people who are interested in living in Costa Rica the idea of what everyday life is like in Costa Rica.  If there is a particular topic that is not listed here about living in Costa Rica let me know and I will add a new topic for all to see.

Living in Costa Rica is not for everyone, in fact many people leave after 1 year.  If you are considering moving to Costa Rica to live, I recommend coming to Costa Rica for an extended period.  This will give you the opportunity to stay in different areas for an extended period and live as a local.  This is much different from visiting for a week and returning back home.  Living in Costa Rica is much different from visiting Costa Rica.

The other option people opt for is living in Costa Rica part-time.  This is a good option for those who do not want to live in Costa Rica permanently.  The one thing to keep in mind is that most leases are for 3 years, so you would need to negotiate a short-term lease.
