Perhaps you’ve decided you want to live or retire in Costa Rica, but you’re first going to come down and get a better sense of where to live, the distance to work or school, understand education options for your family, and just get a sense of life down here. These kinds of trips are common and are an excellent idea! WE can help you with these arrangements including hotel and car reservations. We’ll meet you at the airport, make any arrangements necessary for your scouting trip in advance, and spend up to two days with you driving you around and orienting you to the area you are considering settling in. We’ll even setup school and business interviews, have a range of house rental options available for you to look at, and show you where the corner grocery store is and where to shop! We’ll show you the best route to the mall, where to buy the freshest produce and groceries, and point out some excellent restaurants and social gathering spots.
Being able to communicate is critical, especially when landing in a foreign land. We’ll hand you a loaner cell phone when you arrive for you to use until we find you your own phone and number!
Making the Move to Costa Rica!
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.
If you are in fact bringing the kitchen sink, or the KitchenAid for that matter, you might need help getting through customs with extra luggage or oversized items. We’d be happy to help you.
Once you’ve moved and are unpacked, we’ll spend some more time with you orienting you to all of the essential areas of the town or city you decided to call home. Things like finding the grocery store, school or work, good restaurants, health clubs, movies, hospitals, and doctors are going to be important for you to feel comfortable getting to. As we drive we’ll talk and discuss best routes for driving, traffic avoidance (in San Jose!), and issues of personal safety.
