Costa Rica is one of the most popular retirement havens in Central America. Expats have been flocking here for more than 30 years. And when you are living in Costa Rica you will enjoy the country’s long stretches of deserted and undeveloped beaches, on the Caribbean and Pacific Coasts…dense jungles teeming with exotic wildlife…towering volcanoes, lush green valleys, mountain villages, bustling market towns, quiet rural areas, and hundreds of crystal-clear lakes, rivers, streams, and waterfalls. All these things, and much more, make living in Costa Rica such a draw for retirees and other expats.
Whether you choose to live in Costa Rica full- or part-time, you will relish the ideal climate, safety and security, neighborly atmosphere, welcoming attitude of the locals, low cost of living, low-cost and high-quality healthcare, stable democracy, bargain real estate—whether you rent or buy, and countless ways to have fun.
Costa Rica is a stable and safe country with good infrastructure. Numerous airlines fly into the country from many destinations in the United States and Canada from two major international airports in San José, the capital, and Liberia, in the northern Pacific coast.
When it comes to choosing a location and the type of real estate you want, Costa Rica has a lot of choices.
