    Drivers License

    Hubby has his permanent cedula and a Cdn license & needs to get his CR license. I can't find online, the locations where this can be done. Anyone got a link? Or which would be the closest to Turrialba? Thanks.

  3. Would my hubby have to turn in his Canadian driver's license when he goes for his CR license? Thanks

    Costa Rica is Changing....

    Hubby and I, between ourselves, refer to Costa Rica as a second world country... We have decent internet speed during the day but it crawls early evening - luckily I'm a night owl and the internet is fast when everyone else is sleeping... I have to admit, I am tired and fed up of the constant electrical interruptions and black-outs. I can understand outages during a really bad storm but 9pm on a clear night? Hopefully one day we won't be grid-tied anymore and can kiss ICE goodbye. Also getting really fed up of all the cuts being dug into the road so water can 'run off' into the ditches. The roads were in better shape before all the cuts, now they deteriorate faster. I do love the homey atmosphere when going shopping and everyone greets you by name and asks how you're doing.
  6. That's what they tell us - that's where we originally applied.
  7. I was away for a month, then really sick for a month, then Christmas and New Years came along and then torrential rains... Depending what else happens, might try and go in the next week or two, but it's such a pain - takes up a whole day with all the driving...
  8. Hubby was approved for his Permanent Residency in October, I'm still waiting for mine - it's been over 21 months.

    Memory foam matress

    We bought a Jiron memory foam mattress - there is a big weight difference between hubby and I. Even with regular and proper turning, my lower back all of a sudden started killing me (the original reason we bought a new mattress). The memory foam is now in the guest bedroom and we bought a new regular mattress. Might have to replace that in 5-10yrs for my back but at least it's not bothering me at the moment.

    Aduanas regulations

    Hubby was stopped once cause he had a box filled with new stuff in original boxes, KitchenAid, vacuum sealer, etc. They stamped his passport that he had used his $500 exemption. I traveled back and forth, many, many times with suitcases filled with personal goods, new saddles, electric toothbrush, hidden seeds, a new flat monitor, and other new stuff. Once I was stopped cause they didn't know what my electric toothbrush was. Another time I was stopped and they wanted to look inside a duffel bag. I open up the zipper and the horn of an old saddle pops out, torn leather, missing stitching, etc. They waved me on. The other bags had 2 new saddles. LOL. It's a crap shoot but generally they are too busy to really want to look into things UNLESS you are being rather obvious about it.

    Health & kids

    In our area, it can get really wet during the rainy season but we are on a mountain, so there are little to no mosquitoes because the land is too sloped for standing water.
  12. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. Thinking back on it, doesn't solicitud firma mean waiting for signature and resolucion firma mean it's been signed?
  14. Waiting for my change of residency from temporary to permanent - I can't remember if Resolucion Firma means it's been signed or is waiting for a signature? Thx
  15. I don't know about your area, but I was buying 'carne para perros' to make my own dog food until one developed all sorts of lumps. Took her to the vet and he said they were fat deposits due to the high fat content in the carne para perros. I now only use good quality, human grade meat - I tend to buy it on sale, freeze it and use as needed.
