After much anticipation and anxiety, my dogs and I made it to beautiful Costa Rica.
Yes, there have been many challenges and don’t believe those who tell you otherwise because it isn’t easy. But the truth is I wouldn’t change it for anything.
I’m in a quiet, safe community where I’m surrounded by trees, birds, butterflies and hummingbirds.
As stated earlier, my husband and I decided to move away from the beach and find our place in paradise in a more subdued tranquil environment and we found it here at our Vista Ridge Golf & Country Club where we have a beautiful new home and plenty of land at a fraction of the cost if we’re comparing to areas like Washington DC which is where we lived for over 30 years.
We’re not unique, in that many other expats have made the move to Costa Rica. Life here is simpler, you learn to adapt and, in my case, I’d like to live a healthier, more meaningful life. This place brings me a sense of balance. There are no malls, no shopping centers, no fast food joints and that’s just fine by me!
