How to Read and Use this Blog

November 17th, 2007

First, thank you for coming to visit The REAL Costa Rica Blog.

This Blog contains hundreds of Posts written by several authors and by me. These numerous Posts cover everything from Banks and Banking in Costa Rica to living in a Yurt!

So if you actually got to this Blog on purpose (as opposed to mis-clicking something), what to do?

You can, of course, read every article one after the other. Should take a week or so.

Option two and maybe best is to first look at the first few Posts, then when done with that, look over the list of Categories in the side bar. Thinking about retiring here or living here? There are categories for both. Visiting? Check out the Traveling Category. Wondering about your personal safety? Check out the Crime in Costa Rica category.

Also, use SEARCH, usually located at the top of one of the sidebars! Heard the Dengue Fever is a problem here? Type Dengue into the SEARCH box and you will see everything we have written on that topic.

The writers here express their own opinions, but in general, you will see we are all pretty blunt. If it is it pretty, we say so. If it is ugly, we call it ugly.

By all means read the Comments that follow many Posts. Many readers have their own opinions and few are reluctant to express them in the comments.

Finally, DO look over the advertising you find on this site. Yeah, advertising sucks but it pays the bills and server time is not free. Besides, nearly all ads you see here are relevant to Costa Rica and clicking them can help you to learn more or find a service that you may not know you need!

Regardless… enjoy the Blog and thanks for visiting.

Tim

    A FRIEND AND MYSELF ARE TALKING ABOUT GETTING MARRIED AND MOVING TO COSTA RICA. I GET A DISABILITY CHECK OF ABOUT A 1,000.00 WOULD WE BE ABLE TO LIVE THERE COMFORTABLELY? AND WHERE WOULD BE THE BEST PLACE TO LOOK FOR A PLACE TO LIVE. WE ARE NOT REALLY INTERESTED IN MOVING TO THE COST OR LIVING IN A BIG TOWN.

    Hola I live in Piedades if you know where that is then you know a neat part of Costa Rica. Anyway I do small tours to the Arenal volcano and have a driver with great rates to Quepos to Sail fish. If anyone has any questions I am happy to try and answer them. Been here almost 7 months have all good experiences. Yes the internet comes and goes..Haven’t had my money stolen from my banc…It’s slow sometimes to get things done. The bus runs on time everyday. Some thing are expensive like a wireless. adapter $25.00 in the states $40.00 in CR But I found one today at Multiplaza for $17.00US I was amazed if you know Multiplaza it is the nicest mall in the country..Anyway e-mail me if I can help I know a lot about Costa Rica been coming here for years Peace Kevin B…

    My husband and I will be retiring to Costa Rica as soon as we disengage ourselves from the USA, hopefully any week now. We are interested in small communities, a mix of expats and Ticos, good produce markets to visit, lots of natural sites within a day’s drive and just learning about our new country.
    The area around Arenal has been high on our list of places to live and we will be settling in there for a test run. Meanwhile the question, is there a good site that has more detailed information about the various communities around the lake and what they offer? I haven’t had much luck on searches I have made so far.
