Tierralinda Blog - All about living and investing in Costa Rica

While being the first time in Costa Rica we, my business partner and I realized that there was not much information regarding the start of a new life or investment in Costa Rica. This led to us launching an agency called Tierralinda. Since launching the agency, we have helped numerous people start a new life in Costa Rica or find good investments. We realized quickly that this business goes beyond just selling real estate. To name a few examples, we had to consult people about establishing investment funds, Teak-Wood plantation conditions, coffee-farming, alternative energies, how to start up a bed-and-breakfast business, ostrich farming, administration of corporations, etc. I could go on and on. So in this blog you will find everything regarding investing and living in Costa Rica.
