Costa Rica Websites GOOD and BAD

Costa Rica, Costa Rica, Costa Rica... it's all I hear- "I want to live in Costa Rica." "My wife and I want to retire to Costa Rica." "I want to start a business in Costa Rica." "I want to bring my family down to Costa Rica. Like I said, Costa Rica, Costa Rica, Costa Rica... blah, blah, blah.

Okay, so you've decided living in Costa Rica could be an option. But where to start the research when there's SOooooooooo many Costa Rican websites to choose from. And if you don't know the difference between 'solid' Costa Rica info and 'sketchy' Costa Rica info, it can be veRY daunting to say the least.

I'm here to help. Take a few minutes and watch the video and trust me, it's worth the 6-minutes because you also need to know what websites to AVOID.

The Real Costa Rica and are not the only good websites, they're just a good start. And actually, ARCR has good info but they're totally out to rope you into their services (expensive I might add). Here's a few others that might help. And just so you know, I have NO monetary motivation... and more likely than not, this post will be a surprise to All the websites I mention.

Living Life In Costa Rica blog.Lot's of lists. Great INFO for people looking for the BEST places to find 'things'. She's done a LOT of research so you don't have too. Only thing I don't like, she's a little blatant in seeking donations. But then again, she probably deserves them.

US Expat Costa Rica: This is an 'aggregate' site and a LOT of info shows up on this site from various blogs. He also writes of his own experiences and musings. Good stuff.

Boomers Off Shore Lots of videos and information. Great thing is, the information is based on their own experiences. Solid information.

The Raw Food Family Lot's of videos and INFO about living a more organic and sustainable life in Costa Rica- family, beach style.

A couple blogs I check out:

*A Dull Roar Great info on everyday life and he's a good writer, especially worth checking out if you're thinking about coming to Costa Rica as a family.

De La Pura Vida Costa Rica This blogger writes about her 'observations' and experiences here in Costa Rica. Great writer in my opinion and good inside information.

Of course there's other great websites and blogs pertaining to Costa Rica and if you'd like to mention them, please do so in the comments, I'd appreciate it. This is just my short list.
