The biggest mistake many people make when moving to Costa Rica is that they expect to be able to keep their same lifestyle from back home, only cheaper. If thats what you want to do, you might as well not move. If you want your designer clothes, high speed internet, 500 channles, and upscale cars; stay home. The cost of living n Costa Rica is very affordable if you don’t mind a few changes.

The best way to get an idea of the cost of living in Costa Rica is to check out online newspapers and ads. The one I found most helpful when looking up the cost of living in Costa Rica was Hiper mas.

Hiper mas is a larger “Wal-Mart” style store near San Jose. Don’t worry, these larger chain store don’t litter the country like wal-marts do in the U.S. Hiper mas publishes their weekly flyer online. These flyers give you a good idea of the average cost of living in Costa Rica.
