Thousands of expats consider Costa Rica their home. With affordable living, beautiful terrain and the excitement found in adventure activities, it’s no wonder that people love the ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle found here. Bringing Your Life to Costa Rica. If you have already had time to speak to a realtor and found a home in Costa Rica, your next step is going to be bringing everything you need. Moving heavy furniture can be a little expensive, but it can also be costly to buy when you arrive. It is best to weigh your options for household goods ahead of time to compare pricing, so you can see which will be more cost-effective. Shipping items you rarely ever use is not a good idea due to the cost of transport. Getting Around. You can easily travel from one place to the next in Costa Rica, but let’s be honest; having a personal car here can make your life easier.
Don’t hire just anyone to move your car! You should employ a professional auto transport company. It’s important to work with people who are familiar with Costa Rica, the laws and regulations and who will take good care of your car during shipment. According to A-1 Auto Transport, shipping a car to Costa Rica can be expensive. Tax rates can be as high as up to 75% of the retail value of the car. Buying a one in Costa Rica can also be expensive, and used cars cannot always be trusted. As a vehicle owner, you will need to determine which scenario will work best for your lifestyle as well as your wallet. When you are ready for a heightened quality of life, adventure and satisfactory experience in paradise, Costa Rica is the place to be. Pura Vida! ■
