Having been to parts of Africa and India,no ways in hell am I going to give up my US Passport.



side note

@Sunil P

I don't know any expats that have given up their US passport. They still come back to visit .

Well there was one... but it had something to do with the indictments...

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Thanks ThatmanfromTexas,

I had to delay my trip to Costa Rica for a couple of weeks ... now in may 2012
As far as I know , and as you said , there are areas with plent of expat ( american and others) but I will avoid these areas like Tamarindo for the same resaons you have highlited .
I will hunt for housing in the south of Nicoya peninsula ( motezuma , samara .. ) .



Best regards


If your looking for something in the early stages of development in the southern Nicoya, check out the developer at owncostarica.com as an option. I know most of the stages are sold out, but they might have something come up. They are very highly regarded in the area and have all development permits in place (very important in CR!). They will put you up in their own hotel for a couple days while you check out the area.

I own properties in both developments and plan to start building in 2014-15. Tambor is a multi-family fishing village and development has been limited by the government in the area for environmental reasons. They also don't want it to become another Tamarindo which for my family was a huge selling feature.

I love the area and the people, and I'm sure you will too.

Don't repeat it : Anguilla BVI !

After years and years searching and testing, I found Anguilla, little island near St-Maarten.
Coming from Europe, taning all day long in front of my screens until 10pm (US close), I wanted a place with a better schedule and better life. Now I trade until 4pm only, with sea view, and 5mn from the beach.
This island has nearly all I expected :
nice people, nice place, nice white sand empty beaches, warm water, good wind for kitesurfing, easy plane connection (St-Maarten), hosital public and private, internet connection (I have 3Mb, 8Mb possible) better ping to US than Europe, good restaurants and good farm vegetables, security, lot of activities, tennis, golf, boat, diving, fishing..., and even a small airport for your jet plane (used by many famous people), good place to invest.
I forgot, no tax for offshore activities. Electricity a bit expensive and some taxes on all imported goods.
Also an international community with very nice people.
Most of all, very peaceful and no stress !
But please, keep it as a secret to preserve this little paradise ;-)

kissandfly, that's looks so awesome. What is your ping time to the US? Any issues with brownouts or random internet outages?

Ping to Chicago (from Anguilla) is average 80ms, max 130ms. Some power cut twice a month for a few minutes (if hours, it is planed in advance) but OK with UPS (connection stays alive). I use to have 2 internet providers but not anymore as quality is OK now. Hurricane 2 years ago in September, no connection during 1 week.
