Why Are Americans Still Flocking to Costa Rica- Expat Contacts.

Expat Contacts

When you move, or if you’re just thinking of moving, somewhere new, it’s a good idea to talk to people who have already done what you’re about to. Get in touch with expats in Costa Rica, they’ll be able to help you with any questions or concerns you might have and you’ll be able to compare notes on moving here.

Here are some resources you might find helpful:

  • International Living Facebook page: www.facebook.com/internationalliving. This is a great place to meet other like-minded, Costa Rica bound expats and get advice.
  • Association of Residents of Costa Rica, Box 1191-1007 Centro Colón, San José; tel. +506 2233-8068; e-mail: arcr@casacanada.net; website: www.arcr.net. There’s hardly an expat in the country who doesn’t know of the Association of Residents of Costa Rica. The ARCR is a non-profit arm of Casa Canada, a company that sells a wide range of services to foreigners who live in Costa Rica or who are considering a move to the country.
  • Canadian Club of Costa Rica (AsociaciónCanadiense de Costa Rica); e-mail: club_president@canadianclubcr.com; website; www.canadianclubcr.com. This group emphasizes networking, social activities, and charitable works. Among the activities are monthly luncheons and periodic parties like the ones on Christmas and Canada’s Thanksgiving Day (the second Monday of October).
  • Newcomers Club of Costa Rica; tel. +506 2416-1111; e-mail: costaricaporo@yahoo.com; website: www.new comersclub.com/cr.html. This is a small women’s group. It’s an organization that can put members in touch with local residents, both Costa Rican and expats. The Newcomers Club sponsors many kinds of activities, including shopping trips, cooking lessons, lunches and dinners, tropical gardening lessons, and Spanish book clubs.
