A Bit About the Book

After choosing to retire early to Costa Rica, we devoured every book and blog out there about Costa Rica. We read Costa Rican news sources, participated in forums (well, I lurked while Jen participated), and we read and laughed at the pettiness on the Costa Rica expat Facebook pages. If it had a subject of living in or visiting Costa Rica, we read it.

One thing we found was that most of the written material available on Costa Rica either discussed the minutia of rating locations and restaurants and hotels, or discussed the author’s journey to Costa Rica.

What seemed to be missing was a resource that covered what to expect in daily situations:

  • What is it like walking into a bank in Costa Rica and what do I need to know about it? Surprisingly, quite a lot.
  • How do I get the best deal on groceries?
  • What do I do if I have a car accident?
  • How is the grocery

Simple questions, really, but there was not a ready source for what I should expect in daily situations.

Since it was missing, I wrote it. Those of you who read Costa Rica Curious know 2 things about me: that I call things like I see them, and that I tend to write in a humorous style. These traits are also seen throughout the book.

The book has been well received and has been a number one seller in the Central America Travel category. If you are interested in the eBook version of the book click below to buy it from Amazon.
