RE: Can I really retire for under $2,000/month in Costa Rica?

4 Answers

If you avoid the tourist traps like escazu hiredia and the beaches and own your own house yes you can live very well on $2000.
I live in a realy nice area just between paraiso and cachi outside cartago .
i own my house and i pay about $150 a month in bills that includes water electric property tax, internet phone, and sky sat tv..
i shop at the farmers market on saturday mornings thats 5 mins drive away and has all the best fresh produce and more!!!
i buy meat from the butcher in bulk and i freeze it in a chest freezer (eg half a big pig costs me about $150)as soon as you live in an area where theres expats the prices do go up.aswell as property prices so be careful
if you have any more questions please ask
