  1. My husband and I plan to move and retire to Costa Rica next Feb-Mar 2015. He is taking early retirement at age 62 on Social Security. I will have to wait 4 more years before mine starts. I do tons of research but have heard that realistically, you should double the prices you read. Is this true or depends on lifestyle? We won't require much but don't want to struggle either. We want to live on $1200 a month if realistic. We will have a bit more but want to be able to come back to the states to visit family once or twice a year. We don't plan on having a car or bringing a lot of stuff. Just a couple of suitcases each. We live in Florida near the beach and would like to stay near the coast if we can afford it. I know this part sounds crazy but we aren't even going before taking the plunge, we have never been. Pam
