Are you looking to move to Costa Rica part or full time?
Are winters getting too cold for you? Or maybe you’re a Boomer who’s ready to live out your dream and move to the tropics. Are you worried about the current political situation in the United States?
If any of these are your thoughts, you could be — and arguably should be — seriously looking at Costa Rica. Maybe it's time for your life to be radically different, filled with new and unexpected discoveries every day. If this is the case, are you ready for a really smart next step?
Let us put together a customized ‘Life in Costa Rica’ retreat, just for you, with a main purpose of answering every question we can, thoroughly touring Dominical and nearby communities, learning about the ecology, the cuisine and the people, enjoying our beautiful scenery, and having opportunities to "meet with a pro" where you can ask all the nuts and bolts questions about moving to and residing in Costa Rica.
This package can be as "inclusive" as you like and is priced accordingly. It is a purpose-driven vacation designed to enrich you with a firsthand "boots and sandals on the ground" education about moving and living here, enabling you to make smarter decisions as you contemplate what could become your new home.
Edge of the World Costa Rica has been our business since we moved our family here in 2013 from North Carolina. We’ve met hundreds of guests over the last few years, and most often they're interested in our life story. It's not hard to spot the “contemplators”, those couples or families so eager to leave behind their current reality and start fresh in Costa Rica. We always take the time to answer questions, of course. That’s part of the job when you’re an inn-keeper.
Lately there’s been a spike. It seems that everybody is asking about moving here! We totally get it; the political and social climate — indeed, the climate itself — is shaky. Thus we present a retreat package designed exactly for this demand. We make no claim to be the smartest kids on the block, but our story is similar to most who make the plunge to move here. We've had to learn valuable & frequently painful lessons. More importantly, we know whom to ask if a question is just beyond our knowledge bank. We guarantee to show you the best of what we (and other experienced local professionals) have learned, in the time you have available, with a goal to make you smarter, more prepared . . . and well fed!
We’ve seen it time after time: couples and families move here with great intentions and poor planning; Costa Rica can chew you up and spit you out if you’re not careful! In fact, more than 60% of people who move here last less than a year before returning to their home country. Information is power, and the knowledge you’ll gain could potentially save you thousands of dollars and painful experiences in the future. Our attractive pricing for this mostly all-inclusive retreat may be the best money you’ve ever spent!
One important thing: there is NO hidden sales pitch. This is not an offer to buy a time-share or an ocean view lot. We have no financial connections to the professionals in our area. Our goal is to provide an unbiased, real-life narrative of living in Costa Rica. There is no conflict of interest if you are working with a local realtor. We are here to be your consultant, providing accommodations, meals, and an awesome adventure!
Fill out the form below, let us know some dates and your specific situation, as much or as little as you like. We can respond with some ideas on things to show you, who you should meet, how to plan your days and what we would charge accordingly. Moving here is a huge decision! Let us help make you smarter~
