  6. As you may have noticed... we were offline. Thw reasons are complex , but after six hours on the holiday, it’s up again. still not done, but I’ll be back on the 5th and 6th to finish. happy 4th! TG
  7. All my pool needs are met by a place just outside Naranjo called Bombaci. I believe they have (or can order) tile for you.
  8. Thanks for your reply . We did that and have spoken to them that came up. Most are not even in business anymore. I was just hoping someone on the forum would have a personal recommendation rather than blind internet searches.
  9. If you google "pool tile in Costa Rica", you'll get a number of hits from pool suppliers (and maybe builders). One of them is likely to have what you need.
  10. Hello! We are searching for a supplier for pool tile for our residential pool. I'm not searching for pool builders (we've already built it).... just need some pool tile. TIA!
  11. Hello Paul,

    Sorry for bugging but you are the real expert to ask.

    I arrived to Alajuela outskirts today and the place I have rented via airbnb is depressing. Dirty, no hot water, etc.

    Maybe you know some acceptable place for rent in Alajuela or would advise a good way to search.  

    Thanks, Igor

  12. Have you had any luck getting your migraine meds, Gail?
  13. My lawyer recently advised me that if I buy a property in Costa Rica and the seller neglects to pay the capital gains tax that it can be applied to me. Is this true? It makes no sense but I've lived here long enough to know the laws don't always make sense.
  14. The US dollar and the colon are the two currencies used here. You can have bank accounts in each, if you want. Most of us do. That property seems to be within the range of reasonable rents. You can find larger apartments or houses for the same or less. While this is not a bad deal, you may want to shop around. If you can get it on a month to month basis without a lease, I would take it to give yourself a good home base when you arrive. When we arrived ten years ago, we rented a studio apartment for $500 for the first month. The next month we moved into a small furnished 3 br house for $350. After a year, we moved to another unfurnished house for $240. After 2 years, we moved to a larger 3 br house for $400. We lived there 5 years until the owner sold it. We moved into another for C 250,000. This is the only place we have lived where our rent was raised. It is now c275,000 (about $480). That's a 3 br on a large lot with a great view. All of the contracts have clauses for annual rent increases. You can often avoid the increase if you have a good payment history and convince the owner that you will stay long term and pay on time. It also helps to not look overly affluent. We live in Zarcero, about an hour from Palmares. I am familiar with the Palmares area and like it. T
  15. Hi, I am new here and only just started investigating moving to CR. Can you tell me if the $450 is USD? I am from Canada so seem to be seeing this a lot. Just trying to get an idea of the cost of living there. TIA for any info. Wendy
  16. I came across a website that shows each province of Costa Rica and the boundaries of the cantons within it and thought others might find it useful.
