I have been getting bunch or emails regarding real estate in Costa Rica. I thought it was interesting that I started getting these shortly before we were set to travel down there. When we were in Costa Rica, we were told that a lot of Americans would retire and move to Costa Rica. Apparently Americans can live very cheap down there. I am sure water front real estate is probably still pretty expensive, but inland property can probably be gotten cheap. What would worry me is that it is another country. One day you might own the land, but the next day, the government changes and you suddenly don’t. It was really a nice place to visit, but I am not sure I would want to live there. I know gas was kind of expensive down in Central America. Even more expensive than the US. I think I would miss America. But it was really pretty there. Maybe some vacation property? :)
