Book: A Geezer's Survival Guide to Costa Rica by Jay Brian Schoonmaker
|4.7 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Jay Brian Schoonmakerabout this book: I wrote this book because much of the information I had before moving to Costa Rica was dated, incomplete, or just plain wrong. I discovered what is necessary to start living in Costa Rica on a budget - and still live well.
Information in this book can be useful before you leave the airport. The main readers I targeted are like me: older people, planning to stay in Costa Rica for 90 days or longer. (The laws of a visitor's visa expire for someone from the USA after 90 days.) I had information on inexpensive ways to renew your visitor's visa if you decide not to apply for residency in Costa Rica.
I discuss various ares of Costa Rica who may wish to live, with recent color photographs (taken by me). I discuss where to get groceries, shopping, telephone service, mail service, banking, transportation, and other items when you are not staying at a hotel or a resort.
Since I retired before moving to Costa Rica (at age 55) I called myself a "geezer". This book contains information I wished I knew before moving to Costa Rica - kind of a "survival guide". The title for the book somehow came easy for me.
I made mistakes, and had some interesting times in Costa Rica. I have written about several of these, hopefully with humor (and also so you can avoid making the same mistakes).
