You CAN retire in Costa Rica, and you CAN be living in Costa Rica on just your Social Security income!
The resources displayed below have been invaluable in my research. I receive nothing for providing these links to Costa Rica information and popular expat blogs.
If you choose to purchase a book, an ebook, DVD or Kindle, I will receive a small commission and it will cost you no more than on Amazon. Best of luck in your quest, maybe I'll see you there... Pura Vida!

Marina Pez Vela, at the central Pacific port of Quepos, will host the "2013 Offshore World Championship," known as the “Olympics of Sportfishing.”
65 teams from 30 different countries will compete. Costa Rica's central Pacific was chosen for the event because it offers optimal conditions: calm water, top-quality accommodations and tourist attractions, and enough charter boats perfectly setup for fishing, event organizers said. Last year’s competition brought together a total of 209 fishermen.
According to a 2011 survey by the Costa Rican Tourism Board, 73,281 tourists that arrived by plane that year came to fish in Tico waters.
