Who We Are

Welcome to our corner of the world. Costa Rica is increasingly popular as a top relocation destination for everyone from those looking to retire or simply relocate with their families to broaden their children’s cultural experiences in a stable, safe political and social culture. Costa Rica certainty is that.

We all love Costa Rica, and love talking about it. We get excited at the idea of sharing this treasure we “found” with you and would love for you to come live in Costa Rica, but we would never pressure you.  It is not for everybody, and though we are passionate about it, we view our job as being a source of accurate information for those along the journey of discovery.

We have lived the reality of the benefits to life here, and so our opinions are generally favorable about living, investing or retiring in Costa Rica, but as more and more people start looking for the country that is right for them, the need for accurate information that wasn’t consistently full of hype became crucial.
