The cost of living is one of the main considerations when contemplating moving to Costa Rica. Did you know, Costa Rica’s cost of living is lower than that of the United States? For example, a single person can live in Costa Rica for as little as $1,000 per month on average. Moreover the retirement costs are also far lower in comparison with those in the United States or Canada. So if you want to live in a modern North American style with all the amenities, a US $2000 monthly budget would be more than enough.

Furthermore, rather of basing pricing in Costa Rica on particular goods such as clothing or food, you should base them on what you would spend over the course of a month. For example, you’ll pay a lot more in the United States or Canada for items like auto and health insurance, rent, utilities and heating.
To summarize, moving to Costa Rica will provide you with a higher quality of life for a lower cost.
