Summary: The pros of living in Grecia, Costa Rica include its beautiful scenery, friendly people, and low cost of living. The climate is also very pleasant, with temperatures rarely exceeding 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, Grecia is a safe and secure place to live, with a low crime rate. On the other hand, the cons of living in Grecia include limited job opportunities, limited access to modern amenities, and a lack of cultural diversity. Additionally, the infrastructure is not as developed as in other parts of Costa Rica, making it difficult to access certain services.

What are the pros and cons of living in Grecia?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Grecia responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Grecia enjoy the small-town atmosphere and the friendly locals. They also appreciate the low cost of living and the abundance of outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, and swimming. Additionally, the close proximity to San Jose and the international airport make it easy to travel to other parts of the country and abroad. On the downside, expats and digital nomads may find the lack of infrastructure and public transportation inconvenient. Additionally, the limited nightlife and entertainment options can be a drawback for some," said one in Grecia.

"The most wonderful people. We have become friends of whole Tico families. They will do everything to help you. On the other hand, most expats we have met seem guarded, and not that friendly and even selfish. Someone I asked about shipping small items to CR, was not willing to share what she uses even though she talks regularily about things that had just arrived. ," explained one expat in Grecia.
