As a foreigner living in San Jose, will I have access to public healthcare? What is it like?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in San Jose if they have access to public healthcare in San Jose. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"Yes, as a foreigner living in San Jose, you will have access to public healthcare. The public healthcare system in Costa Rica is considered to be one of the best in Latin America, and is free for all citizens and legal residents. The public healthcare system is well-funded and provides a wide range of services, including primary care, specialty care, and hospital care. The quality of care is generally good, and the wait times for appointments are usually reasonable," explained one expat living in San Jose, Costa Rica.
