3 reasons why I choose to live in Costa Rica?  

1)  The Costa Rican economy expanded by 3.5% in 2013, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The economy is projected to expand by 3.8% this year and will continue to grow in 2015! This country has a great economy and politically stable - I feel extremely secure living here!  After 12+ yrs in this beautiful country…it only gets better:)

2)  Unlike other foreign countries - my properties here are “fee-simple.”  This means that “my properties are 100% owned by me!”  Not in a 50 - 100 yr lease. Property taxes are at a “fractional” 0.25%!  No capital gains tax for foreign owners, and the cost of living is a fraction compared to the U.S.  Healthcare in this country also exceeds the U.S!  Costa Rica is considered a “Blue Zone,” one of the only five places on Earth with more people living over 100yrs old!  Bottom-line…I will “statistically” live longer by spending more time in this tropical paradise:)

3)  My final reason is fairly simple…I’m just happier here:)  I feel at peace sounded by friendly people, nutritious food, and the breath-taking landscape at every turn.  And, I know my real estate investments are appreciating and safe!
