Hola. I’m just another expat happy to be living in beautiful, tropical, and at times challenging Costa Rica. For my first year, I chose to live in Escazu, the San Jose suburb known as the Beverly Hills of CR, which has been the perfect place to learn the language, the customs and the bureaucracy. Next steps will include moving to a more rural yet accessible location with less traffic and lower costs. Keep checking in while I describe my experiences as a tourist and resident of this fascinating place.
