Sometimes when we travel we fall in love with a place and then think about living there part time or full time. Costa Rica is home to many American expats who rent or purchase a home. Some stay 3 or 4 months and some get resident status, electing to live in Costa Rica full time.
I’m privileged to know Chris Howard, who has lived in Costa Rica for decades and has helped thousands of foreigners find their new home. Hands down, you won’t find another expat with the extensive knowledge of every little town and the contacts to help you get the real scoop on living in Costa Rica.
Chris’s book, “Guide to Real Estate in Costa Rica” is over 500 pages long and goes into great detail. In the eighteen chapters of his book Chris covers everything from renting, buying, developing, the culture of Costa Rica, architectural styles, how to maintain your home, financing, legal matters, and more. Here’s the link to his book on Amazon.
Even if you’re just taking a vacation in Costa Rica but want to know the culture and a detailed guide to each area, you could make good use of Chris’s book. If you’re thinking about trying Costa Rica, don’t leave home without it.
