  1. Appears almost every governmental agency is looking hard for ways to generate potential revenue. ( Link Below) : http://news.co.cr/medical-marijuana-9-million-potential-revenue-for-costa-rica/38335/
  2. Most of the India folks are living in the USA now, is anyone even there to accept a transfer?
  3. Costa Rica, U.S. and many others intentions related to the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) are stated below: http://www.ticotimes.net/2015/02/17/us-latin-american-leaders-push-hard-for-proposed-trans-pacific-partnership
  4. Costa Rica needs every dollar, every dollar counts that flows into Costa Rica, no matter who it came from. Costa Rica needs not only tourist dollars but gringo dollars, pensionado dollars and most important, business dollars. Here is what Mr. Solis just said at the U.S.A. business summit: ▪ Despite stability, growth and focus on education, poverty is still a big problem: Solis said that 21 percent of the country’s population of 5 million is considered poor or extremely poor. “Structural poverty has been a problem for generations,” Solis said. “It’s an economic problem, a social problem, and also a moral problem.” Read more here: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/article21017490.html#storylink=cpy
  5. Black, White, Yellow, Red, Brown, we are all just passing through, really doesn't matter what a person choses to call their status, as long as they are legal and respect others !
  6. Yes, I also have documention stating "pension for life" in my safe, non-governmental pension. Has anyone here on the forum ever used a United States, large aerospace, publicly traded company "pension for life" to qualify for approved CR Pensionado, resident status? Thank You In Advance!
  7. Jeffery, Thank You for posting your recent denial status! Please, may I ask how long into the application waiting process were you denied? I also am considering appyling as a Pensionado and also have a pension that is not from a government agency. So much has changed recently and is changing now, regarding living as a resident in CR.
  8. Lol ! What will a "box" of el "Grosso" set a person back, more or less than $2?
  9. Any recent new information or status regarding the proposed new southern zone airport, the "Pavones Point" resort and Golfito port projects? There is a new proposed beachfront resort project called "Pavones Point" and a website as well. Website stated prices start at 425K USD to live at the longest warm water left surfing pointbreak in the world. Read also that major development at the port in Golfito including hotels and stores in the "duty free" shopping zone, have been approved. Any additional news or status anyone? Thank You In Advance, Regards
  10. The questions many of us new "Boomers" have when searching for ideal retirement or travel destinations are some of the same as the previous "Boomers" before us. Now with all the new social media tools and information so readily available, the top locations and "bang for the buck" destinations are rapidly changing. For sure, we are living in a changing and very dynamic world! Becoming a resident in Costa Rica is a significant investment in time and dollars, also planning, building and maintaining a residence is a huge commitment to supporting Costa Rica and its people. The new laws and mandatory requirements imposed to join CAJA and the additional monthly expense can be an unexpected financial burden/expense that some "Boomers" didn't forsee or add into their present or future planned budgets. For some that had hoped to live in Ticoland fulltime they may need to change their plans to become "residents" and be happy just visiting down south as a "tourist" from time to time.
  11. Since the wife and I already have pre-paid medical through our pensions in the USA, do we elect to join the CAJA or take two round trip flights and a fourteen day cruise from the US, per year? Tough choices relating to present and promised future CAJA increases.
  12. Very true, agree, that is why I am on the fence, due to the fact more "actual living time" is needed by my spouse and I, before deciding if and where to become a permanent resident.
  13. Used to say Costa Rica but now I am on the fence. Need to spend additional time in Panama before forming an opinion.
  14. Hi All, Does Costa Rica and Panama have the same requirement for Pensionado's regarding having to spend at least one day per year there? Have not read much related to this rule or law, anyone? Thank You
