Moving to Costa Rica

Moving to Costa Rica is a wonderful adventure but once you are here some people can’t quite seem to adjust to the lifestyle or the climate and don’t notice the immediate effects on your body and mentality. I want to share some tips and hints on how to adapt quickly.

Emigrating to Costa Rica

I get requests every day about emigrating to Costa Rica. Luckily I have some of the best lawyers in Costa Rica to help with your needs. I have personally emigrated here and can help advise you on what it takes to become a resident of Costa Rica. There is some paperwork involved and there are three primary ways to become a resident of Costa Rica and they each come with their own rules and regulations which we won’t fully go into here.
