doppelt posted a topic in Real Estate in Costa RicaHi Maybe someone has gone through this many years ago. I plan to move in late 2015 to Costa Rica. I only have so much Canadian money to convert to US and the worry I have now is that my plans may be dashed because the Canadian dollar that was 96 cents when I started this plan, is not almost 80 cents Its ridiculus I have no faith in this nCanadianj currency at all when i plan to spend 200 K US, I now have 49 K less to spend because of the exchange. I heard that if I build a house rather than buy one, I can save 30% that would offset what I lose on the exchange\ or..i can just wait a year (maybe) for the dollar to go back up any experience out there on this? thanks Dennis
