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.
