Live Your Dream Retirement in Costa Rica

Because Costa Rica enjoys a high standard of living at a low cost, relatively low crime, and a neutral democracy, it's gained a reputation as a must-consider destination among pre-retirees and adventure seekers.

Luxury Living for Less

Costa Rica has every luxury you could want and more, but it's the affordability of life here that sets it apart. You don't have to be a millionaire to live like one in this country. Your U.S. dollars go further, and most expenses are much lower, which is why Costa Rica has become a premier retirement hotspot.

Top-Rated Healthcare

Costa Rica is well-known for its affordable, state-of-the-art healthcare, provided by pioneering doctors. Medical insurance premiums and medications are also significantly lower. Whether you use the country's free, universal healthcare system or enroll in private insurance, you'll be supported for far less than you'd spend in the U.S.

A retired couple in the United States may need around $280,000 saved to cover healthcare expenses, not including the cost of long-term care, according to Fidelity. Private healthcare in Costa Rica is less than half the cost compared to healthcare in the United States.

Established Communities
People have been retiring to Costa Rica for more than 30 years, so U.S. expat communities are well-established. You’ll have a community of friendly neighbors as soon as you move in. You’ll find no language barrier, either. Thousands of Americans are living their dream retirements. You can, too, by simply following the same well-tested path.
More than 50,000 luxury properties in Costa Rica are owned by retirees from the United States.

Enhance Your Quality of Life for Half the Cost
Costa Rica has one of the highest standards of living in Central America, boasting a stable and growing economy that caters to the middle class, safety, security, easy residence programs, a stable democracy and quality healthcare. And it's attainable. You can live well here on just $2,000 per month.
