Costa Rica Healthcare: What you should know

Moving To Costa Rica

There are many aspects of moving to Costa Rica to consider, not the least of which is getting you and your belongings here. Moving your life to a foreign country can seem like a daunting task. Actually, it is a daunting task, but only if you insist on doing it alone. Like anything, it’s the advice you get and homework you do that can make the process easy and uneventful in this otherwise stressful time of your life for you, your family and your pets. If you’re in the early stages of investigating just how to make this move and finding out how much it will cost… we always recommend you contact a local Costa Rica mover specializing in international clients that is experienced in shipping door to door from North America to your home in Costa Rica. Some even have long standing relationships with container shippers in ports like Miami or Los Angeles which can save you money. Here’s a few helpful links for you to check out:

Investing in Costa Rica & Best Practices for Real Estate Purchases

Owning A Business in Costa Rica

Whether your interest is to semi-retire while operating a small Costa Rica boutique hotel, or to relocate a multinational company, Costa Rica is worthy of your consideration. This country offers a unique combination of factors that attract investors. Factors like favorable tax rates, employee safety, cost and quality of health care, proximity to the US and all other Latin American markets, government incentives for foreign investment, political stability, and of course, the world class weather. At the time of this writing, over 200 high-tech, multinational companies have agreed with this assessment as Costa Rica has become home to them. Among the international business community, Costa Rica is considered an excellent location for advanced manufacturing, life sciences, clean technologies, regional distribution centers, infrastructure projects, tourism, agribusiness and much more. Favorable government regulations and tax laws, coordinated with financial service institutions, have made doing business in Costa Rica profitable and convenient, which encourage foreign investment. Unlike most Latin American countries, drug culture is NOT rampant and out of control in Costa Rica. These countries compete for foreign investment and for that reason, Costa Rica was named the safest country in Latin America for investment and corporate relocation due to the absence of violence and kidnappings that you constantly read about in other countries. This weighs heavily in the decision of companies when choosing a safe location for their employees to relocate or expand to.

Starting or Purchasing a Small Business

Starting purchasing a small business in Costa Rica if fairly routine and is done frequently with little effort. It is always advisable to use a local attorney to guide you through the basic procedures and reporting process. Also advisable is an accountant to oversee corporate updating, employee benefit payments to the CAJA Government Health Insurance, income taxes and all other miscellaneous reporting. An local attorney should always be engaged for all legal processes required to open a business like registering the property, setting up a corporation, setting up a board of directors as well as outlining employees benefits and insurances.

Semi-Retire In Paradise With a Bed & Breakfast Hotel Investment

Costa Rica bed & breakfast, or boutique hotels are very popular for investment. Depending on the size of the operation, a business like this can allow an investor to semi-retire for a minimal investment (around $250,000 and up) in a choice of beautiful locations all over the country. Larger operations will require more of a hotelier’s marketing experience, a full time effort and a dependable staff, but the promise of fantastic return on investment makes it worth while. And the smaller “mom & pop” operations (4 to 10 rooms) typically provide a good return on initial investment, a comfortable annual income, a residence for the owner, and the promising future value of a proven income producing property in one of the most desirable locations in the Americas. What’s not to like?

Owners of property purchased for $200,000 or more automatically qualify for residency in Costa Rica, providing a few other requirments are met. Hotel owners can work, draw a paycheck and purchase the affordable public or private healthcare in Costa Rica, and immediate family members can enjoy the same benefits.

How to buy Costa Rica Real Estate

What Region of Costa Rica is Best For Me?

Over the years, working in Costa Rica Real Estate, it has become clear to me that there’s only a handful of property ‘types’ that attract most people to this country to retire, relocate or purchase vacation property. Where YOU decide to settle depends entirely on your present lifestyle, your desired lifestyle, budget and activities you wish to peruse. And there’s also specific needs you may have such as proximity to health care, schools, shopping, activities and transportation. Before you proceed, answer the questions in the Lifestyle Checklist below to clearly define your lifestyle needs in Costa Rica.

The Lifestyle Checklist:

  • What activities do you enjoy (golf, beach, gym, nightlife)
  • What is your budget (purchasing power and monthly budget)
  • Proximity to work and commute time
  • Health Care considerations (proximity to hospitals, clinics, doctors and emergency care)
  • Proximity to schools (elementary, colleges and universities – public and private)
  • Transportation (proximity to highway, airports, public transportation)
  • Proximity to worship facilities (church, temple)
  • Lifestyle (urban, rural, beach, mountain, jungle)
  • Will I learn Spanish?

Listed below are the most commonly sought after property features that most buyers gravitate toward here. With each property type, I have noted the region, or regions it can be found in. Cross reference those regions with the map above to see where it is in the country. I then listed popular towns in those regions you might consider, plus basic information to give you a good idea as whether it’s right for your consideration.

Which Lifestyle Appeals To You?

For your convenience, I’ve created info pages for the property attribute that may be most important to you. Click on the link below that appeals to you the most for extensive information on that property type.

Close to Culture, Shopping, Dining & Night Life:

There is really only 1 metropolitan area in Costa Rica that can offer all 3 of those things, and that’s San Jose proper in the Central Valley. The city of San Jose is huge and quite populated and there’s really not much of anything by way of the aforementioned that you can’t find there. There are plenty of secure, high rise condominiums and gated condo developments you can live in around the greater San Jose area, but you don’t have to live IN the city to enjoy it. Settling in any one of the surrounding towns in the Central Valley offers quick access to the big city and all it has to offer.

Beach Town Lifestyle:

There are miles and miles of coastline in Costa Rica which offers a variety of lifestyles and virtually NO oversaturation. One could visit a popular beach on a Sunday morning in the most popular area of the most popular region in Costa Rica, Esterillos in the Central Pacific for example, and be hard pressed to see more than a dozen people. But if you want more action, good restaurants, clubs, and night-life can be found in many of the North Pacificbeach towns like Tamarindo, Flamingo, Jaco, Manuel Antonio, Dominical, and on the Caribbean Coast, Limon. Though these towns tend to get active as the sun goes down, they’re still sleepy little beach towns, and it’s rare to see them open until the wee hours of the morning as is common in San Jose and most major cities. My experience is that’s exactly how the residents of these areas like it.

Golf Communities:

There’s several golf communities in Costa Rica, but the most popular are Los Suenos Golf Community and Maria in Herradrua in the Central Pacific Region, Cariari Country Club in Cariari in the The Central Valley, and Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed, 18-hole championship golf course in Flamingo or the Four Seasons Papagayo Hotel and Resort with their 18-hole, Arnold Palmer golf course in Liberia in the North Pacific Region. All of these communities offer a wide range of homes to purchase, from upscale luxury estates to more affordable condos and every point in between. These places offer a slice of American style resort lifestyle while in Costa Rican paradise.

For The Nature Enthusiast:

Seriously? This is Costa Rica… nature is EVERYWHERE in this country. One of my favorite things to say is “everywhere you look in Costa Rica, there’s something to look AT”. I couldn’t possible name all of the places that might appeal to nature enthusiasts, but I will name a notable few. In the South Pacific Region, where the jungle and mountains meet the sea, you can consider Dominical, the Osa Peninsula where you can explore the fantastic national parks, estuaries and mangroves. On the Caribbean Coastal Region, you’ll find the only pink sandy beaches in Costa Rica (not black volcanic sand or the brown/gold sand of the northern region), and abundant Caribbean coral reefs, and the Tortuguero Canal system, which is an amazing eco-system all unto itself. In the The Central Valley Region you can scale any of the 3 prominent volcanoes, in and around the areas of Heredia or Alajuela, and in doing so, experience several temperate zones and pass through a few different eco-systems in the process. But if it were me, the one place I’d seriously consider is The Lake Arenal Region. Never have I seen such a place with incredible growth, abundant wild life and a plethora of activities. It’s only 90 minutes from the North Pacific coast, under an hour to the international airport in Liberia, and 3 hours to San Jose and the Central Valley. There are fantastic real estate opportunities of all kinds in these areas. Here are a few that I feel put you right in the thick of Costa Rica Nature.
