Don’t worry if you’re not a polished writer—we’re not just looking for professional writers -- though professional writers are encouraged to get in touch, too. We’re more interested in what you have to say than how you say it.
What are we looking for?
We want to hear your experience living in Costa Rica—whatever your story may be. We'd like you to share the great things about living here and the not-so-great things to watch out for. We want our articles to tell the TRUTH, with no hype and no sugar-coating.
Imagine talking to your friends back home. What do you want to tell them about your experience living in Costa Rica? What are the most important things you can tell someone about your life in this country?
We'd like our writers to tell our readers about their journey to their Costa Rica home—how and why they chose their new retirement destination…how their lives have changed for the better…and what it is that they love about the place they now live in. Some share the mistakes they've made, the challenges they've experienced and what they would have done differently if they did it all over again.
You can tell about the magnificent home you have bought, built, or rent ... about the cost of living, the rich culture of your new hometown, your warm and friendly community, why you love it or why you hate it.
You can talk about how you availed of low-cost healthcare and dental care…have discovered a new-found love of the everyday things that you were too busy to appreciate back home…or how you’re enjoying life in your own little paradise…
Other writers can share even bizarre stories. Like how you've scoured the world in search of your perfect retirement spot.
Our readers love beaches, mountains and countryside. Some of them love the city. They want to live in Costa Rica, either part-time or full time and most of them want to learn about ways to stretch their dollars and simplify their lives.
