Costa Rica is a young, thriving, cosmopolitan nation that opens its arms to the world and wants to show you what makes it a unique place. There are countless reasons (and whatever you want: rational, emotional, philosophical, aesthetic, etc.) to be able to demonstrate why the foreigner ends up loving the “Land of Pure Life”.
Let’s start with a very rational reason. Costa Rica has become the leading economy in Latin America in a sustained and stable job for more than ten years. The nation has taken pains to improve its scores in almost all international rankings and measurements. Growth, legal security and above all, security, transform the country into the ideal place to live peacefully.
- Its People
Cheerful, funny and above all smiling. The world knows the true Tico spirit. The national identity has been forged from the harmonious coexistence of multiple nationalities that came to work and finally ended up staying. That harmony and fusion is admirable from architecture to gastronomy, through music and art.

Ahead with the restart of operations of its International Airports whose infrastructure allows the landing of both commercial and charter flights, which will increase the passenger transport capacity per year, Costa Rica can boast of being one of the most important touristic and commercial points in Latin America. Today the country directly connects with many destinations in more than 30 countries in Europe, Asia and America.

Costa Rica has always embraced anyone who wants to come to live in the country. The foreigner will always be welcome. It is in their DNA. And if there is something that has been a public policy, it is the benefit for the retiree. That is why regardless of their nationality, the retiree has a series of fully guaranteed rights. Modern, convenient, and close to the U.S. — not to mention sunny, warm, and welcoming. It’s hardly surprising that Costa Rica is among the first nations in the 2019 Annual Global Retirement Index.
That is why Costa Rica, for more than ten years, has led all the quality of life rankings for retirees, pensioners and the elderly. Enacting laws that apply equally to Ticos and foreigners residing in the country.
