  1. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all on forum.
  2. Also used book exchange at Pato Loco cabinas/restarant. They are on left coming into Coco on main road just past mall where BCR is. Also Coco Palms hotel/restaurant down by park/beach. Turn left near beach at soccer field & you will see straight ahead.
  3. The coffee shop at las palmas here in Coco is a drop off for books. People take,read & return. Will let you know where others are as there are more places.
  4. I live in an area where there are plenty of expats living full time or 1/2 the year. Here 5 & 1/2 years & have limited contact with a lot of the expats. From experience when first moved I found so many live limited lives, sit around pool & drink,wait for happy hour at the bars, & bash the country,its people,customs,traditions,& way of doing things. I totally embrace CR with all it's customs etc.
  5. Went Florida in Sept. on AA. Economy the 1st checked bag $25. So not free if economy.
  6. The only start of topic besides the title that I see is that no other opinions will be tolerated. Why post a topic is no other opinions are wanted. Then I say remove this thread.
  7. This article from Elections Canada says be 18 years age & live in Canada anytime before the election. http://www.elections.ca/content.aspx?section=vot&dir=reg/etr&document=index〈=e
  8. I have no complaint about paying the CAJA monthly fee. It is a bargain for sure.
  9. Newman. You CAN become a citizen of another country if retired from the military & keep your pensions etc. You do not have to give up your US citizenship. Check government sites on web.
  10. I am not sure why Newman is still here in CR given all his "bad" experience. We only are hearing his side of the story. many many people including myself have had good experience getting resident & living here. I sure hope new people on this site do not take all Newman says as gospel truth. He seems to be a very unhappy man.
  11. Remember that to cut down a tree in Costa Rica requires a permit. I also think a poor time to do this with the flooding situation in other parts of the country. At least you have a road while many in flooded areas don't.
  12. I never understand why people think we need to "CHANGE" Costa Rica. It is their country. As Paul says we are guests. As I often say if we don't like it here we can leave. I personally am very happy & satisfied with my life here ( almost 5 years).
  13. I always refer to myself as legal immigrant/guest in Costa Rica. Expat was not a word in my vocabulary. I first heard this word reference from an American so thought it was an american thing. So that word never comes to my mind when referring to myself. I don't mind which word immigrant or expat people use. I shall stick to immigrant. I hear many people with no residency referring to themselves as expats which does fit "living out of their homeland". i prefer legal immigrant for myself as more defined than expat. Only my personal opinion.
  14. I have tico friend ,my tico caretaker/security & a Holland friend/neighbor who is permeant resident that all have the info for who to contact if i can't speak for myself. They have family phone numbers,my medical CAJA number,passport #,cedilla number,little medical history that is important like rare blood type & allergies,etc. They also have key to get in in an emergency. I have had this set up since living here for 4 1/2 years. My family in turn has their info & knows who they are in case they call.
  15. Ron: i know everyone has different experiences in obtaining their residency. I must say I was 100 % satisfied with my experience with ARCR. I am always highly recommending them to others seeking residency. I applied in 2010 & 15 months later had my cedula in hand. I found them very professional & knowledgeable. I know many people in my area including friends ,who used ARCR, and they were totally satisfied. Maybe there was something in your application that help approval up. Just guessing as i don't know your case. New people who want to use ARCR for residency, should not think that everyone has a bad experience using them.
