    Grandkids coming to visit

    Found "like-new" baby rental equipment in Playa Hermosa from Laura Leoti...perfect! https://www.facebook.com/EHOsmile/
  2. Grandkids coming to visit us in Playas del Coco. Anyone know how we can get a playpen, baby carseat and toddler booster carseat?

    Taking laptops across the border

    Taking laptops across the border

    Good to know...thanks Eleanor. My husband has heard that they may think you are selling one and will charge you 40% duty.
  5. I have just bought a new laptop and don't think I will have time to transfer my data from my old laptop before I fly to Costa Rica. My husband is also taking his laptop. Will we have trouble crossing the border (Canada to Costa Rica), with three laptops?
  6. Based on all the advice we have received from this Forum (most appreciated), we have decided to get Health Insurance from MediSmart. Is there anyone else who has done so, and had the Contract and User Manual translated to English? If so, would you be willing to share, even for a cost?

    So glad to receive these detailed stories, that I could not have gotten elsewhere. Anyone use MediSmart? It seems VERY cost-effective.

    Best way for medical insurance - Travel vs CR Plan

    Thanks everyone for these detailed accounts of your experience and expertise! I'll have to study it more carefully, because now, I'm actually more confused than ever. I am applying for Pensionado Residency, so will have to contribute to CAJA. In my mind, once a member of CAJA, then it is walk-in and pay-as-you-go. Until I become a member of CAJA, I was under the impression that medical assistance would be so costly, that insurance would be the smart way to go. So this inquiry was to find out what others had done. Tibas9 and David's account of CAJA make me feel that I should get private insurance as well, and use a CIMA (or non-CAJA) facility for medical attention. Does anyone have experience with the Blue Cross/Blue Shield private insurance in Costa Rica?

    Seaturtlewoman: What is "catastrophic" coverage? Emergency medical? What is INS insurance? David Murray: What is WEA?

    Thanks for your response, costaricafinca...much appreciated.
  13. Hey Canadians...I am now deliberating about what is most cost-effective regards Emergency Medical Insurance. We are coming down end of September and staying AT LEAST a year, but returning for a couple weeks twice during the year. Getting Emergency Medical with Travel Insurance, makes it a huge expense if you need to get it with each trip, back and forth. (However, it does cover a flight home in an emergency, if needed.) We are thinking about just getting Private Medical Insurance in Costa Rica instead, because we have heard that the medical is top-notch (so why would we need a flight home). So, OHIP coverage when in Canada, and Private Medical, if needed, when in Costa Rica, and NO Medical Travel Insurance. Does this sound like a good plan? What have you experienced Canadians found as the best plan???

    WOW! Induna, you are a rock star! It is like pulling teeth to get answers, and you have now obtained excellent clarification for me. Kudos!

    Thanks so much for your cautions, but we HAVE decided to stay. We have done extensive homework and committed to a one-year rental, after physically meeting with the owner here in Ontario. It will be an adventure for us come what may
