  1. Hi Everyone, I am in dire need of assistance. I live in the San Carlos area, and have found a used car for sale that I am interested in, however it is located in Santa Ana. I am not familiar with the area, and would like suggestions of a reliable, honest mechanic to take it to, in order to check it out, prior to my purchasing the car. Any help would be appreciated. I am hoping to be in Santa Ana Thursday or Friday. Hopefully the vehicle will still be available by then. Thanks ever so much. Tatty
  2. Good job Ron. I had to make the run to keep my drivers license in tact. I had no issues with immigration officials on either side, in fact the CR guy said "see you tonight", he knew I was not going to stay out of CR for 72 hours! Did you have any issues with the border guards? Where is your 2 warnings posted, which thread?
  3. $300! I took the bus from San Carlos to Los Chilies, took the 1:00 boat, had lunch in Nicaragua, took the 4:00 pm boat back, got a 3 month stamp. The people at the CR immigration are the friendliest people on the planet!
  4. Aftercoming down many times and looking around. Finally, I booked a trip, rented a car and drove from one end of the country to the other, north, east, south and west. I had been in contact with realtors in all areas of the country, and narrowed my list. I found a house on a piece of property that suited my needs. I will be moving to it permanently this month, so I cannot tell you at this point if I made a GREAT decision. What I can tell you is this... The attorney that I worked with, Roger Petersen, is located in San Jose. My property is located close to Arenal. Roger kept me
  5. I have used Trustedhousesitters.com with EXCELLENT results!
  6. Hi John, Do you do any handy work? I have a place that I own, that I would consider your offer of house sitting, if you do work, such as putting up a wall, fixing my balcony etc.
  7. I formed a corporation in CR last year when I bought a house. I will be moving down there (hopefully) next year when I retire,. I heard about the new tax that has to be paid by the end of this month. However, I cannot seem to find out how much I owe, or how I can get it paid. Is there anyone that is willing to help me out????
  8. thanks everyone for your input. I have been to CR many times, and travelled extensively throughout, with the exception of the Osa Peninsula (which is my daughters favorite area). I am going to look at 3 houses, one in San Carlos, one in Playas Del Coco and the othe is near Nicoya. Wish me luck.
  9. Help! I am flying to CR this month for just a few days to look at some properties for sale, in the hopes of purchasing one for my retirement home. My question is this: How can I get about $50K into a CR bank account? Should I bring a Bankers Cheque, or a personal check, or $10K cash????? I know I will have to open an account once I get there, and then wire money into it, what do I need to open a savings or checking account. As you can tell, I am totally unfamiliar with the process. Thanks Everyone
