We cover it all, with only one standard – THE TRUTH.
We’re the team behind Costa Rica Insiders — a group of American expats who have been living in Costa Rica since October 2014 with our families and kids. Even though we’ve been visiting for years, we were still in for a big culture shock.
During the time that we have lived here, we have adjusted to the lifestyle and culture. We’ve grown to absolutely love this country and its people. But Costa Rica is not for everyone; we’ve seen expats who have moved here burn out quickly because they didn’t have a good idea of what they were getting themselves into. Too often, people have been lured in by international real estate publications that sell an idealized version of Costa Rica that ignores the reality of living in Costa Rica.
We too were lured in by these online articles and publications and were completely misguided.
Whether you are only beginning to consider a move to Costa Rica, or you have been living here for years, we hope this blog — and our expert journalists at Costa Rica Insiders — will provide some new insight and perspective to what life living in Costa Rica as an expat is truly like. Since starting this blog, we’ve written many great, reliable articles about living, working, or retiring in Costa Rica. As we continue to live in Costa Rica and experience new things, we’ll keep writing about our experiences here with only one standard — information you can rely on.
We’re so grateful to have you along for the journey!
