Christopher Howard has just finished updating the new 19th edition of his 750-page guidebook, “The New Golden Door to Retirement and Living in Costa Rica — the official guide to relocation.” Like all of Howard’s other works, this new edition will by published by his company, Costa Rica Books S.A.
The book contains fourteen chapters which cover a variety of topics: Costa Rica’s land and history, choosing where to live, saving money, making money, health care, starting a business, real estate, red tape, residency, staying busy and happy, communications, getting around, education (tips for learning Spanish and language schools), more useful information, parting thoughts and advice and resources.
All of the nuts and bolts, time-tested advice, insider information and contacts are included to help make the move relativey seamless.
In addition, there are annecdotes which recount different expats experiences while living here and sidebars with practical tips.
A previous edition was featured on the cover of Publishers Weekly annual travel edition and was a candiate for the independent Publishers Group’s Benjamin Franklin Award for outstanding independent publishing.
This is a ‘must read’ for those thinking of relocating here.
