Housing, Schooling and Transporation

We manage and update a database of recommended and prestigious private schooling options available in the area you choose to live in. We’ll provide you with summaries of each school’s philosophy, size, location, curriculum whenever available, and tuition structure. The format we provide is uniform for each school so that it’s easy for you to compare them at a glance. Furthermore we have a working knowledge of many of these schools as well as their history and reputation and we can gladly share this information with you.

Housing, Schooling, and Transportation

Experiential learning on the beach in Costa Rica

Possibly one of the most time consuming aspects of moving to Costa Rica is finding housing that you are happy with. Based on the Needs Assessment that we will conduct with you as one of the first steps, we’ll research, refine, and present to you a range of housing options for your consideration. Once you arrive, or during your scouting trip, we’ll visit as many of these as possible so that you are comfortable making an informed housing decision.

If you didn’t have an opportunity to do this during a scouting trip, we’ll setup interviews and tours of local schools that interest you and give you the chance to get comfortable with schooling options. You’ll already have read through the tuition structures, history, philosophy, and curriculums (when available) as part of the initial documentation we provide, however this will be a hands-on chance for you to see each school.

Its moving day and everything and everyone including the kitchen sink are on the plane! When you land, we’ll be there to meet you with a nice big air-conditioned van. We’ll load you all up and take you to your home and get you settled in.

We’ll find reliable, established, and vetted help for your home, childcare, and garden needs. We’ll give you a chance to meet prospective employees and educate you on everything you need to know about hiring domestic help in Costa Rica.

Buying a car anywhere is a daunting task… buying one in Costa Rica is exponentially daunting! We’ve done it and know what to look for, and what to avoid. We’ll show you around, translate, help you find what you want, and even help negotiate the purchase. Furthermore we have in-house legal services that will cost effectively do the transfer of any vehicle into your name and ensure that everything is done legally.

Need a driver? Personal security? Pool services? We can arrange it all for you and give you options to choose from.
