How contact women who made the move to Costa Rico alone?

Post Posted: Tue May 10, 2005 3:36 am

As a woman in my mid-50s, I am thinking of moving from the US to Costa Rica to make my savings last longer and to be surrounded by beautiful nature. It would be a huge move and risk for me, and I'd like to talk with other women around my age who have made the move. Can you put me in touch with any women like me?

Thanks,
Vivir

Hi Vivir,

A warm welcome to our forums at Expat Focus, good to hear from you.

I think it's very wise to discuss your plans with other women of a similar age, who've already made the move etc. What I would suggest is sending a private message to Russ Martin, who is the moderator of this forum and an expert on life in Costa Rica (his username is AE_Russ). He's always really helpful and he may be able to put you in touch with some expat women out there...he will probably see this post anyway, so you may hear back from him, too.

Good luck, and keep in touch!

Jo

Hi Vivir,

You can definitely accomplish your objectives here in Costa Rica. The Tico Times Newspaper Online edition has a list of clubs for many different interest groups. If you would like to call these two they may be able to help:

Women's Club of Costa Rica +506.282.6801
Women's International Leage for Peace & Freedom +506.433.7078
Newcomers (for women) +506.232.3999

You might also try a personal ad in the newspaper. If you are not planning to move immediately, I would recommend a subscription to the paper - digital or print format - because they frequently publish events and information on new groups that are forming.

Another resource would be Jo Stuart's columns in AM Costa Rica.
AM Costa Rica Online Newspaper
This is a whole series about her experiences in Costa Rica.

Good luck and please don't hesitate to ask further questions as they occur Idea
