I was really impressed. In San Jose itself, I think you will find that the housing is already extremely expensive, on the outskirts, not as much. I hope to go back! Carolyn

I visited Costa Rica right out of college several decades ago and it was at that time head and shoulders above the other Central American states in education, relative standard of living, and stable democracy. Many Americans were retired and living there full time. I wonder if more wide spread expansion of foreign business will raise the cost of living too much. For retirees it had a great balance between good quality of life and inexpensive cost of living. The climate in the 3,000 foot ASL central mountain valley is moderate year round, ideal temperatures for most people. Houses didn't need either heating or cooling. I'd love to go back and catch up after 30 years.
