Why Costa Rica?
Costa Rica has a lot to offer expats and can be considered the best of all worlds — breathtaking nature, warm weather, high marks for safety and healthcare, and a full democracy that even the U.S. can’t boast — all at a lower cost of living. Costa Rica welcomes retirees and anyone wanting to find Pura Vida. That said, the cost of living is rising, especially in expat havens, and the weather can vary dramatically from coast to coast, so spend time in multiple locations in both rainy and dry seasons before you choose a permanent location.
