Moving to Costa Rica is the topic of an article in this morning’s Wall Street Journal. The article talks about taking early retirement and moving to Costa Rica. Here’s what the article says were their criteria:

Warm weather
Maximum 4 hour plane ride from the US
Adequate and affordable health care
American-friendly
Located near or by an ocean
Clean and abundant fresh water
Affordable housing
Cost of living at least 50% lower than in the US
Good coffee
People choose Costa Rica for many reasons: early (or timely or late) retirement, a less stressful restart, a vacation property, an investment property to rent out, second home, or just to get a portion of their money outside the US. Whatever the reason, many people have found their goal in Costa Rica. It’s not perfect, but then – no place is.
Talk to us about the pros and cons of Costa Rica.
