Insurance coverage in Costa Rica

Hello everyone,

Moving abroad requires adequate insurance coverage.

What type of insurance expatriates need the most in Costa Rica: health, house or liability insurance? All of them? Do they come as a package?

Are there other insurance options to consider like critical illness, damage or property insurance?

Is it better to purchase insurance from an expat insurance specialist or from a local insurance provider?

And what about insurance costs?

Tell us about your experience in Costa Rica.



Dear Kenjee,

it depends: If you will stay for a defined period an international health insurance is recommended.
For longer periods there are local health insurances and if you you have a visa the local health system is also available.

Damage for property is not usual but if you can get one its not bad.

For any other question don't hesitate to contacta me **

Best regards
