A Broad In Costa Rica

A Broad In Costa Rica
I must bring to your attention this very excellent blog by Sally O'Boyle. Sally and Hal departed Key West for Costa Rica a few months ago for a stay of a length I haven't yet discovered in either of their blogs. I've had link to Hal's blog on my link list for some time. Now I'll add one to Sally's as well.

Their tale is similar to our own: disposing of things that don't matter much, packing up, and moving on to a new adventure. We've been watching Costa Rica (and Nicaragua and Texas, and now Mexico) for some time as potential locations for our next move, when we at last become snowbirds. Now we have contacts in CR who see the place from the ground and are able to report on its complexities.

I recommend their very different blogs to you.

buy real estate in Costa Rica

If you are looking at real estate overseas, or for a way to get
better returns in your IRA, here is little secret your stock broker will
never tell you about... The IRS lets you purchase
real estate Costa Rica
with income that is tax-deferred. That means that many savvy investors
are investing their IRA funds in
real estate in Costa Rica
The one exception is that you can't use the
Costa Rica real estate in your
IRA as your residence or vacation home, if you are under 59 1/2. Your IRA
custodian must actually buy the real estate you are investing in. For more info go to
