Life in Costa Rica

Life in Costa Rica is colourful, busy and full of smiles.

Costa Rica is divided into seven provinces, Alajuela, Cartago, Heredia, Guanacaste, Limón, Puntarenas, and San José, however, these provinces are in 5 main regions: Central Valley (GAM), North Coast, Arenal/Monteverde Mountain Region, Southern, and Central Pacific. Most companies, schools, and services are in the Central Valley (GAM) - Coastal and Rural Towns like Jacó, Tamarindo, Dominical, Uvita, Ojochal, Atenas, Grecia, and Puerto Viejo are very popular with expats.

Costa Rica has a few major highways mainly connecting to the coasts. Universal Health Insurance is offered through the Government; however, it is best for expats to obtain a private one.
