Written by a baby boomer guy that retired and moved to Costa Rica in July 2010 with his wife and four dogs. They live in the country near Atenas.
Mark and his wife Nancy (who blogs at KeepingYouInStitches.wordpress.com moved to Costa Rica in the summer of 2010. They purchased a home in rural Atenas and shipped a forty foot container full of stuff - including a Smart car. Mark now admits that shipping a Smart to Costa Rica was dumb. Mark and Nancy both write regularly about their new life.
