Costa Rica officially the Republic of Costa Rica is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Caribbean Sea to the east, and Ecuador to the south of Cocos Island. It is a beautiful country with long stretches of beaches, dense jungles teaming with exotic wildlife, towering volcanoes, lush green valleys, and hundreds of crystal-clear lakes and river – your only limit will be your return date.
Rainforest hikes and lively high-height trails, world-class surfing: Costa Rica offers a confounding suite of open-air enterprises in each shape and size – from the screech instigating rush of a canopy zipline to a sun-bewildered evening at the shoreline. National parks enable guests to witness life in both rainforest and cloud woods, stewing volcanoes offer supernatural vistas, and dependable surf breaks are suited to novices and specialists alike. Can’t choose? Try not to stress: given the nation’s size, you can design a generally short excursion that incorporates everything.
Another big bonus is the high-quality, low-cost healthcare. There are two systems: private, for which you can pay cash or use insurance, and the government-run public system which you join when you become a legal resident. Overall, expats in Costa Rica pay a fraction of what they did back home for healthcare. All these advantages make Costa Rica a premier destination for those looking for a secure, fun, and active retirement surrounded by new friends in a beautiful setting.
