It had always been an imagine mine to live someplace warm and exotic, much from the cold winter seasons of Alberta, Canada, so when I was given the possibility to move to Costa Rica for a year, I jumped at the opportunity.
I had actually never ever seen Costa Rica prior to and also had not been fairly certain exactly what to expect, even after hrs of “surfing the web” for info. I was happily stunned as well as virtually instantaneously fell in love with the nation. A year really did not seem long enough to experience all the marvels Costa Rica had to use, so I made a decision to offer my residence in Canada as well as relocate right here.
There are many websites, short articles as well as discussion forums devoted to the topic of “move to Costa Rica “, as well as I check out hundreds. I was looking for response to “what I should and need to not bring or deliver right here.”
My countless hours of research study resulted in confusion, irritation, and also eye pressure. Fortunately, I discovered The Organization of Homeowners of Costa Rica ARCR website and started checking out the online forum posts. This was a massive assistance, and after reading the good suggestions of several posters, I sat down and also made a list of what I can as well as could not live without.
I submitted my checklist of “Things I Cannot Live Without” to 3 global moving firms. After getting their quotes, all around $5,000.00 plus delivery as well as calculating the tax obligations, insurance policy, as well as task I understood that I could in fact live without or replace the many of the things here for much less.
When people transfer to Costa Rica they presume they can bring their automobile right into the nation with marginal expense. The truth is extremely different. To import a car you need to estimate that you will be paying 53% on the worth of the vehicle, plus delivery prices.
There was a time that I could not think of a life without the icemaker in my refrigerator, the big screen TV, and my footwear collection a close 2nd to Amelda Marcos; however life is much simpler below. I uncovered that I might live without a various set of shoes for each clothing and also attire for every set of footwear, the TV’s and also stereos, my luxurious range as well as the unlimited supply of ice.
