SO YOU WANT to LIVE in COSTA RICA the Adventures, Trials and Tribulations of Settling in Paradise

22 Oct

Today’s blog will be the words on the back cover of SO YOU WANT to LIVE in COSTA RICA.

Every blog entry will start with the appendix because that way when you read whatever else I have posted it will 1. make sense (I hope) and 2. give you a point of reference in case you realize you need to read something that is “archived”.  Because if you read every blog I enter you will have eventually read the whole e-book and won’t need to order it from Amazon or B&N.  All you’ll be missing are the photos that show what you might expect if you choose to undertake the Adventures, Trials and Tribulations of Settling in Paradise.

As I said, I will start each blog with the appendix so that the reader can reference important elements of the book to archived blogs.  The page numbers shown are the actual page they appear on in the book. Here is the Appendix and these are all the nuggets and their corresponding page numbers: Definition of “nugget” – 3, Doors & Windows – 7, Manufacturing – 11, Real Estate – 11, Shipping – 12,Maps, – 15, Corporations – 20, Traffic Cops – 23, Know basic Spanish – 30, Panama – 33, Roof Line – 42, Plumita Pacifica Web Address – 65, Getting the Best a Tico has to Offer – 84, Power Surges – 86, Liberia Airport – 88, Attitude – 104, Cellular Phones – 117, Newspapers – 18, Your Embassy – 137, Buying & Selling Cars – 154, Drive Slowly – 161, Arriving at the Airport – 168, Wages & Prices – 170, Undertows – 226, Life Ring – 230, Avoiding Customs Confiscations – 234, Driving Rules – 236, Walking in the City – 249, Purchasing Anything – 258, Buying Fresh Produce – 263, Bus Tickets – 272, to “Bribe” or not to “Bribe” – 313, Traffic ticket Prices – 315, Exiting the Country – 337

And now for those back cover words:

If you have been or want to go to Costa Rica and you are wondering if you might like to live there this book will give you the kind of information you will not commonly find in tourist guide books, Realtor invitations or government published statistics.  It will sharpen your vision.

This is a guide book that will give you the kind of insider’s knowledge you might wish you had before you made your decision to move or not move to Costa Rica.  It will open your eyes to the sights that are commonly overlooked when you are looking with eyes that are in love with the beauty and friendliness of Costa Rica.

SO YOU WANT to LIVE in COSTA RICA

is a collection of funny, challenging and true experiences recorded exactly as they happened, unabridged and without elaboration or artificial eloquence.

It is an entertaining, delightful and insightful read.  Take it with you to read while you are exploring one of the world’s last mostly unspoiled, beautiful and stable democracies.

Pura vida!
