Costa Rica is a tropical paradise that more and more expats and retirees are calling home. The natural landscape is stunning, the people incredibly friendly and welcoming, the economy strong and the vibe laid back and relaxing. Costa Rica is, after all, the land of Pura Vida, or Pure Life, and it’s why this country has ranked #1 on the World’s Happiness Index.
Imagine waking up each morning to watch the sunrise over the ocean or spending the afternoon surfing, swimming or trying your hand at yoga. In Costa Rica, not only can you have a lush tropical jungle for a backyard, you can also take a long afternoon nap in a hammock and no one will bat an eye!
Simply put, Costa Rica offers a wonderful lifestyle at a reasonable cost. The country boasts a modern capital city, reliable utility services, quaint villages and charming beach towns.
And thanks to the fact that Costa Rica is a safe nation with low crime rates as well as a democracy that is politically stable, foreign investors can feel good about buying beachfront homes in Costa Rica as well as other properties around the country.
If you’re thinking of retiring someplace overseas, Costa Rica is an excellent choice. For starters, since there is no army to support, the government invests money into their universal healthcare system. This affordable and quality healthcare is no doubt why the average life expectancy in Costa Rica is 79-years-old, one of the highest in the world.
Acclimating to life in Costa Rica is also incredibly easy. Most locals speak English and are happy to do so, and there are fantastic English-language magazines, newspapers, and websites catering to the expat community. As expats ourselves, we are always more than happy to help our clients settle in as quickly as possible, so they may start enjoying the Pura Vida.
