Hello. My name is Ed and I live in Austin, Texas. I am an avid birder and have visited Costa Rica three times over the past few years.
I will be retiring in the next 18 months and am researching the possibility of retiring in Costa Rica.
I will be making a research trip in which I will be spending 30 days primarily in the Central Valley in June - July 2017.
At this point, I am focusing on Atenas, Grecia, San Ramon as well as the Colon/Puriscal area as possible permanent locations. I am not exactly sure how to spread and spend my time in these locations during my visit, but am looking at alternatives.
I have subscribed to blogs, am reading the newspapers, have made some contacts and have read several books and will continue to read others. I am studied Spanish and will get more in to that in the coming months.
I am excited about the possible move and, while I do not have any specific questions at this point, if anyone has any thoughts, suggestions or advice (particularly on how to spend my 30 day research trip), fire away!
