Costa Rica has for years been denouced as a bad place to invest or visit. This is just not true. It's my favorite country in the region and the people are nice and realistic. They know tourism and have been at it for years so the quality of the service in Costa Rica is much higher than in the other countries of Central America.
Costa Rica is exceedingly beautiful with a variety of climatic conditions, and it is still possible to find good real estate prices in Costa Rica, especially compared to the prices in Europe and Canada. If you have your heart set on Costa Rica, then move to Costa Rica. The weather is great; the beaches lovely. A paradise offering springtime weather all year round, low cost of living and first world class services. A friendly place where wealth and social justice were walking together harmoniously and violent crime was known as a reference to our overcrowded and polluted cities.
Faced with the spiraling cost of living, oppressive taxes and a slew of government regulations in the U.S., people of all ages includingbaby boomers and entrepreneurs, are searching for an affordable place to reside outside of the United States without sacrificing their current lifestyles. Costa Rica may be the place they are seeking.  Costa Rica seems too good to be true. The country never experienced  the ravages and exploitation visited upon other countries in Latin America  by the Spanish conquistadors. Instead the country was originally settled by colonists who were forced to supply the labor themselves. Thus, a sort of egilatarian society developed with everyone doing their share of the work, and few becoming very rich or very poor. As a result, today Costa Rica has the largest percentage of middle class  and the most equitable distribution of wealth in Latin America.
The Republic Of Costa Rica
Costa Rica is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the east and south, the Pacific Ocean to the west and south and the Caribbean Sea to the east.
