I used to work with a guy who spent his vacations in Costa Rico. He said he was going to retire there. Said the cost of living was low, you could have a 2000 sq ft home near the water, a live in housekeeper/cook, and 1st world health care for around $2K per month.
quote:Costa Rica has seen it´s better days. Most people in the know, with cash, have been buying in Colombia, since 2007.
I know three people that bought and moved there this year. Apparently there is some appeal although I'm not sure exactly.
