  2. Hello, I have lived here for almost 4 hears in the san jose area Moravia and Coronado, I have never had a problem, and we have left out house alone many times for upto a week at a time. Yes there is crime here and if you leave anything outside it will be gone in minutes, I have given up on using a trash barrel to prevent dogs from getting in the trash after the last one was taken even full of trash. I live in a Tico neighboorhood with no gates or guards and our tica neighboor was robed last year, but I feel it was due to putting out the box of a plasma tv in the trash as just a few days after that was when they got broken into. I feel very safe here and go walking many places in the day and early evening, I would not go walking late at night or at night in the city. So as many have said I feel here is the same as the US just more care needed for things left out no yards here all needs to be inside house or garage or your closed in backyard.
  3. His name is Bruno, he is adjusting well to his new home after a fews days of cleaning up things as he learned the new rutine, He is a great dog very good with our young kids 12 , 5 and 16m old baby. still recoverying from his acident and can not go up on his hind legs or lift his leg to make pee. The vet said it would be a few weeks for the fractures to heel. I agree it is hard to understand how people can leave a dog alone that can not walk crying in the street...

    Silly Car Question

    For the people that say most Ticos do not have cars, have ya driven on the roads here lately... the traffic is terrible and I see more BMW, land rovers, Mercedes audi every day. There is a fast growing middle class in Costa Rica with lots of jobs coming from the US out sourcing work here. Companies like HP, IBM, Amazon, Boston scientific, Dell and many others. HP (my current employer) has over 7000 people working here and hiring more every week. The pay is still very low compared to the US but more in the 3,000 a month range not 400-500 that many people speak about. Yes many people still takes busses as they are still very full but someone is driving all the cars I see every day and buying the new cars that fill the adds each day in the paper. I think this middle class is who is also purchasing all the new houses/ condos that are springing up all over the place. and as others have stated there is lots of lawyers and doctors and business owners here that do very well.
