Costa Rica ranks as the best destination for Retirees
in the 2021 global index
and in 2022, came in 2nd!
Thanks to: QCOSTARICA Jan. 6, 2021 – Costa Rica was placed in the first place as a destination for retirees in 2021, according to the annual ranking by International Living (IL), surpassing countries such as Panama, Mexico, Colombia and Portugal.
Conditions such as the climate, the proximity of nature, the hospitality of the people, the social and political stability and access to health, weighed for Costa Rica to be considered the best destination for retirees. Photo: the Tenorio Volcano National Park by Melissa Fernández Silva
According to IL’s Annual Global Retirement Index 2021, which has been published since 1979, Costa Rica advanced from last year’s third place, when it was behind Portugal and Panama.
“The Retirement Index is the most comprehensive and in-depth survey of its kind. It’s the best way we know of to sift through the wealth of opportunity the world offers, bring some order, and help you pinpoint the best destination for you,” says the IL website. The index is informed by hundreds of opinions and real-life experiences — information— compiled by trusted sources in the best retirement destinations across the globe. We think of it as a tool for you, our reader.
Each of the 25 countries in the Index are ranked and scored across the following 10 categories: Housing, Benefits & Discounts, Visas & Residence, Fitting In/Entertainment, Development, Climate, Healthcare, Governance, Opportunity, and Cost of Living.
“A country has to be affordable to be a great retirement spot. It’s that simple. And to assess how affordable each country is, we got our experts on the ground to ﬁll out a comprehensive monthly budget. Everything from the cost of a liter of milk to a bottle of beer to a movie ticket was factored in,” says IL.
What is the Annual Global Retirement Index?
For this year’s classification, in the average of the 10 indicators, Costa Rica obtained a score of 85.2, which places it in first place. They are followed in the ranking by Panama, with 84.4, and Mexico, with 83.5.
Other notable positions followed are those of Colombia, Portugal, Ecuador and Malaysia.
In the index breakdown, however, Costa Rica lags behind most of the top 20 countries in cost of living. Costa Rica’s score in this regard is 84, compared to 87 for Mexico, 89 for Colombia, 93 for Ecuador or 91 for Malaysia.
The top 10 2021, and Costa Rica was 2nd in 2022.... In 2023, came in 5th...

Costa Rica’s qualities
By justifying Costa Rica’s position, the IL assures that the country offers a simple life, in a society where it is cared for, with a cost of living that it can easily afford.
“These are places where, as expats on the ground regularly report, it’s easy to feel healthier, happier and less stressed. As Washington state expats Tom and Diane Brown put it, speaking from their new home in Costa Rica’s Central Valley: We live very comfortably on our two Social Security checks and my pension. Here we can easily live on US$3,000 a month, including a gardener and a maid. We also save US$500 each month for travel,” the publication notes.
And it continues: “Costa Rica attracts millions of foreign visitors and residents throughout the year with its tropical climate; lower cost of living; friendly locals; affordable health care; vast real estate options; and, of course, its natural beauty”.
The high rating of the other factors affected the global index for Costa Rica to reach first place.
IL also includes statements from Kathleen Evans, International Living correspondent in Costa Rica:
On the narrow, volcanic isthmus of land between the continents of North and South America, there exists a country so rich in natural beauty, the adjective is actually in its name. “Rich Coast” or Costa Rica attracts millions of visitors and foreign residents throughout the year with its tropical climate; lower cost of living; friendly locals; affordable medical care; vast real estate options; and, of course, its natural beauty.
Earning the nickname “Switzerland of Central America” this peace-loving democracy shines in a region often plagued by political and civil unrest. Costa Rica abolished their army in 1948 and pledged that budget to education and healthcare. Resulting in a well-educated population and medical access for all citizens and legal residents.
This republic is internationally known for its safety, neutrality, and commitment to the environment—with roughly a quarter of its land protected as national parks and wildlife refuges. The current democratic government, under Carlos Alvarado Quesada, is considered progressive and LGBTQ equal rights are mandated—officially legalizing same-sex marriage in May 2020. A rare policy to find in Latin America.
Once you have acquired your residency, you pay approximately 7% to 11% of your reported monthly income into the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social healthcare system (Caja for short) and the national medical program is available to you without pre-existing exclusions or age disallowance. Residents have the option to blend public healthcare with private medical care either through out-of-pocket self-insuring or with the purchase of insurance policies. You can purchase these through familiar names like Blue Cross/Blue Shield, CIGNA, Aetna, or a Costa Rican private policy. All at a fraction of the cost compared to the U.S. You will find three JCI accredited private hospitals in the San José area, as well as numerous private clinics throughout the country. The public system has over 29 hospitals and nearly 250 regional clinics, making it easy to find healthcare no matter where you choose to settle.
A couple can live comfortably, but not necessarily extravagantly, here for around $2,000 a month. This includes renting a two-bedroom home with North American amenities, air conditioning, plus groceries, entertainment, transportation, and healthcare. If your monthly budget is closer to $2,500 to $3,000, you will find a relaxed lifestyle with every comfort you require.
One of the things you hear often from expats is how warm and welcoming the ticos (Costa Ricans) are. They are wonderful people, eager to share the magic of their culture, food, and traditions with foreigners. You will also find engaging international communities of expats who will help you through the process of acclimation. The vast majority of new arrivals say it is very easy to make friends and fit in here. Black Americans are also finding peace in Costa Rica away from the systemic racism associated with the U.S. The Costa Rican government’s official proclamation rejects all forms of racism and discrimination.
Pura Vida is a common Costa Rican phrase. Although it translates to “pure life,” this definition merely scratches the surface of a phrase deeply woven into Costa Rican culture, and used to convey anything from “hello” and “goodbye,” to “great news,” “cheers!” and countless declarations in between.
Expat, Nicole Rangel, explains it in this way, “What makes Pura Vida such a check-all statement is that it translates to more than just a greeting. It is a solution, an action, and a way of life. When you approach life with a Pura Vida state of mind, you are opening yourself up to the possibilities of life beyond what you experienced before. You are sharing together in this communal acceptance that life doesn’t have to be controlled or mandated, you can make it what you want, you can have friends you never thought you would have, you experience things you never thought possible because you are opening up to a life less complicated.
“That is why so many people come to Costa Rica and find the best version of themselves—they embrace a new appreciation on life. It is just a bonus that it is in such a beautiful setting,” she continues.
Most expats will confirm living a healthier lifestyle once they arrive. Costa Rica is an outdoor culture—with no shortage of physical activities from fishing, golfing, and horseback riding to hiking, surfing, and yoga. Plus, there are less processed foods, and abundantly healthy choices of locally grown fruits, vegetables, organic eggs, and endless seafood and grass-fed beef. It is no surprise to hear reports about expats having shed unwanted weight, taking fewer prescription drugs, and overall better fitness of mind, body, and soul.
This revelation should come as little surprise since Costa Rica possesses one of only five “Blue Zones” on the entire planet—located on the Nicoya Peninsula in Guanacaste. These zones were discovered by National Geographic scientists and longevity researchers in the early 2000s. They consist of regions that have an unusually high population of centenarians (100+ year-olds). Ten times greater than in the U.S. The research confirms qualities such as healthy diets, natural calcium-enriched water, sunshine, active lifestyles, strong familial and friendship ties, and faith contribute greatly to their longevity.
Costa Rica, like all of Latin America, is predominantly Roman Catholic with approximately 75% identifying with Catholicism. However, you will not find the deeply rooted religious holiday traditions you find in other Latin countries. Costa Rica is considered quite secular. The government assures religious freedom for all. You will also find Evangelicals, Protestants, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and small numbers of Jews, Mormons, and Muslims. Expats who settle in larger international communities will find English-speaking churches—primarily nondenominational Protestants.
With a dozen official climate zones and hundreds of microclimates, there is someplace for everyone’s personal weather preferences. Many people love the temperate “eternal spring” climate of San José, the capital, and the surrounding Central Valley. Or the dry, hot beaches of Guanacaste, or the lush, green landscape of the jungles in the south and Caribbean side.
Like everywhere in the world, the pandemic has dealt the Costa Rican economy a harsh blow and put strains on the healthcare system. Even so, the country remains a good long-term bet as we move toward a post-COVID world, given its natural beauty, resilient population, and progressive vision.
Ahhh, Costa Rica, the island of .....
Most of you know by now that Costa Rica is not an island, but situated in Central America between
Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south, BUT WAIT…
discovery: Costa Rica is, in fact, an island. A previously uncharted network of rivers and lakes comprises the entirety of Costa Rica’s borders with Nicaragua and Panama. “To be quite honest, we had never bothered to check before,” said Rodolfo Villegas, lead researcher at UCR’s School of Geology. “We always assumed people were confusing us with Puerto Rico when they called Costa Rica an island.”
UCR began its investigation after receiving a number of tips: first from Fox News, then from USA Today, and finally from a bachelorette party that posted a series of Instagram photos from Manuel Antonio with the hashtag #IslandLife. As it turns out, much like when Google Maps reportedly contributed to a Nicaraguan invasion of Costa Rica in 2010, mapmakers everywhere have again made a grave mistake with the Central American country’s borders. U.S. officials were reportedly contacting the Panamanian government seeking a refund on a lightly used canal.
(April fools joke before Covid-19 changed our lives, but it is pretty funny so i kept it!)
However for the millions that have visited Costa Rica, or for the happy residents that live here, Costa Rica
is indeed an island of peace and tranquility in the sea of Central American political turbulence and poverty.
Plus the fact that it's so close to the U.S. helps to ensure interest in Costa Rica by North Americans forever and ever, no matter how bad the U.S. economy!
This “developing” nation has its reputation continually and romantically enhanced by:
The inspirational example of a country that proudly lacks a military force.
The evolving ecological consciousness and desire to be the leader in Eco-tourism; the large quantity of
natural reserved & protected areas, and the popular carbon exchange programs.
The absolutely amazing amount of spectacular scenery (from its beautiful beaches, rainforests, volcanoes,
to the endless variety of flora and fauna).
The wealth of activities ranging from adventure sports both day and night, or the leisurely moments spent
sipping sunrises during spectacular sunsets.
The fact that all foreign property purchasers have the same legal rights as the Costa Ricans,
(except for concession zone properties which we don't recommend for purchase!)
But most of all, Costa Rica is a great place because of the incredibly friendly and warm-hearted people
known as Ticos (males) and Ticas (females).
WHY THE CENTRAL PACIFIC AREA with Jaco beach, Playa Hermosa beach,
and Los Sueños are the best places to invest in Costa Rica?
1. The continued success of the luxurious Los Suenos Marina & Golf Resort, generally acknowledged to be the most successful resort community in all of Central America and located only ten minutes to the north of Jaco. Their high end condos, homes and villas have set the standard for gated beachfront communities and lent credibility to investing in Costa Rica’s Central Pacific area, with condos priced from $389,000, villas over $4 million, and homes valued over $8 million. Los Suenos is internationally recognized as both a world class fishing destination as well as offering a unique and respected 18 hole golf course with an enchanting forested backdrop. The Marriott Los Suenos, located here, is very popular internationally.
2. The availability of fee-simple 100% fully titled Jaco and Playa Hermosa beachfront condos, homes, villas
& ocean view lots-less expensive and safer than Mexico! Only 4% of Costa Rica’s beachfront is titled, and
this area contains a high percentage of this land.
3. The year-round tropical lush green beauty of the Central Pacific with the best beach climate anywhere
along the entire Central American Pacific coast! No hurricanes, no tornados, no tsunamis, no droughts,
just lovely beach weather, year ‘round.
4. The new highway from San Jose to the Jaco area has been enjoyed for over 2 years now, because the
travel time on average is ONE hour 15 minutes to either the International Airport SJO or to the popular
western suburbs of Santa Ana-Escazu (featuring an IMAX movie theatre-only one in Central America;
Cima Hospital-partnered with Baylor; Multiplaza West-the biggest mall in C.A.; PriceSmart-like Costco;
major hotels, and dozens of excellent restaurants, including U.S. franchises.)
5. Jaco Beach visitors are astounded at the positive changes over the past few years, beginning with paved
roads, more stores, more police, more options for fun!
6. Many new eco-activities, from extreme sports to more family oriented nature tours- from zip-lining to
butterfly & monkey exhibits; from birdwatching in the Dry Rainforest Park to visits to tropical Isla Tortuga,
and of course, Costa Rica’s #1 National Park, Manuel Antonio, continues to be a “must see”, and is only one hour away.
Jacó, (pronounced ha-CÓ) has always been one of the most popular beaches in Costa Rica
due to its proximity to San Jose, vast amount of entertainment options and public services
provided. NOW with the new road, Jaco beach is more popular than ever..
Jaco is located in Garabito, the eleventh canton in the province of Puntarenas in Costa Rica.
The canton covers an area of 189.7 sq.miles (316.31 km²), and has a resident population of
over 17,000, however during weekends or holidays the area swells to almost 30,000.
Garabito's capital city is Jacó, and therefore life is easier when requiring government services
as they are almost all located in Jaco.
The shape of Jaco Bay is unique and brings us cooler breezes and temperatures than either in
the north or south Costa Rican beaches...
Also note that there are 2 bilingual, international and fully accredited schools in the area for
U.S. families. The Central Pacific Jaco area continues to offer more reasons for families to
Also remember that CR Beach broker-owner Jeff has lived in the Hermosa
Bungalows since 2005; only 8 minutes from Jaco.
The New Freeway: Having waited for more than 30 years for this miracle to take place, the
new highway, (called officially Highway 27 or Ruta del Sol) was inaugurated by the President
of Costa Rica, Oscar Arias on January 27, 2010.
The driving time has now been reduced to one hour fifteen minutes from the International Airport Juan Santamaria or from the shopping & dining mecca of Escazu. More importantly, the stress of driving to Jaco has been greatly reduced as one no longer has to deal with curvy
mountainous terrain. Hooray!
Will this result in increased equity and interest to this area ?
Things are selling again, so our answer is yes, now is the time to buy!
Is this part of Costa Rica modern?
Yes we have Cable and Satellite TV with all your favorites including CNN, Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN, HBO, Sony, WB, National Geo., Bloomberg, Disney, etc....
Yes we have high speed and wireless internet, and plenty of land lines and 3-G cellular phone
services. Yes we have modern grocery stores with the most incredible fresh produce and
imported goods. Yes we have a Quiznos, Subway, Pizza Hut, KFC; there are 3 Sushi bars;
lots of "typico" restaurants with full meals (casados) for under $4; gelato ice-cream & TCBY
yogurt; & all types of restaurants serving the freshest fish caught in area waters, to satisfy
almost all "foodies."
As a former restaurant owner, I am thrilled at our eating options here in Jaco, or in Costa Rica
