If you’re ready for “Pura Vida,” the pure life, and want to enjoy a high standard of living in Costa Rica than you will want to consider retiring in Costa Rica. This nation of just over 4 million people is tucked between Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the south, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Caribbean Sea to the east.
Costa Rica may truly have it all: a year-round tropical climate, a modern capital, beaches of all kinds on both Pacific and Atlantic, lush rain forests, and picturesque valleys and mountains.
According to the U.S. Department of State, more than 20,000 U.S. expatriates live in Costa Rica, many of them as retirees. That is due to the fact that Costa Rica has the highest standard of living in Central America. With an economy that caters to tourists and travelers, you’ll easily find theaters, galleries, fine dining, health care, and modern telecommunications.
Beyond its natural beauty, rich culture, and geographic convenience, Costa Rica attracts many expats with its lower cost of living and slower pace of life.
Many retirees choose to live in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, within a few hours of the capital city of San José and its international airport, shopping, and medical facilities. The weather is also an important factor — the Central Valley enjoys year-round spring-like temperatures averaging 74ºF (23ºC). Other expats choose to live near the beaches, with the Central Pacific (such as Jacó and Quepos / Manuel Antonio) and the Guanacaste province (such as Tamarindo and Playas del Coco) being the most popular.
