Will I save money living in Playa Jaco?

Answer this Question

We asked expats if they save money living in Playa Jaco. They said...

"Living abroad in Costa Rica has definitely exceeded our expectations financially. Imported products such as electronics can run 50% higher than our native country so this is definitely a downfall. Some imported foods are expensive too. However, it is not difficult to learn to live without all the high end electronics and the latest gadget. Learning to shop locally for food brings your grocery budget to a reasonable level. Fruit and vegetables are inexpensive and living on the coast, fresh fish is a great deal! Property taxes are inexpensive and a fraction of what we paid in the states. Vehicles are expensive as is gas; however public transportation is widely available and very affordable," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Playa Hermosa de Jaco, Costa Rica.

"Living in Playa Jaco can be more cost effective than other parts of Costa Rica due to its location in the Central Pacific region, where many basic goods and services tend to be cheaper. Depending on your lifestyle and budget, it is possible to save money by living in Playa Jaco. The cost of rent and meals are generally lower than in other parts of the country, and the many stores and supermarkets in the area offer competitive prices. There is also a good selection of activities in the area that are either free or affordably priced," commented one expat who made the move to Playa Jaco, Costa Rica.
