My message to all viewers

Please read my blog. I will do my best to inform you of all the things I have learned and seen.

Including all the things that make my retirement unique, normal and maybe special to me.

First day of retirement spent traveling to San Jose, Costa Rica, Jan 1st, 2019. 

Second day of retirement in Costa Rica

But of course, on the second day I was still in San Jose because I needed to pick up my car or should I say pick out my car. I had some great help from They picked me up at my hotel and drove me around to different dealers. We had already talked about the type of car I needed.

We found a car I liked; met with an attorney (yes you need an attorney when you purchase a car in Costa Rica), signed all the paperwork, I paid for the car and then met with the insurance agent to purchase my insurance. All done in one day. Those guys were AWESOME!! More information on purchasing a car, click here.

A little shout out to my piano teacher. Check out my piano teacher’s story. Also, how about music where I live. The band’s name Los Peatones Del Surf music.

Then on the third day I actually drove to Cocles Beach and Playa Chiquita.

My drive way to my new home.

Beach near my new home.

I am living in the very small village called Playa Chiquita (No not the picture above.) See blog post for tons of pictures. Below is a short video about the area. One little item that make Cocles beach unique, Cocles beach here on the Caribbean side of the country, is the only community on this side of Costa Rica that hires lifeguards during the peak tourist season.

Places to visit
If you click on the “Places to visit” link, I talk about places here on the Caribbean side where I live.

For Turtle Lovers

Just north of Limon on the Caribbean side is “Tortuguero National Park”. Tortuguero in Spanish means ‘Region of Turtles’.

Additional Turtle information

Also, about 30-minute drive south from my house, there is Monkey Point where the turtle’s lay eggs from March to April.

This number is a Costa Rica number, but if you have WhatsApp, you can call and reserve a cabin to watch the turtles’ lay eggs at night. The last number is a six: 506-8547-3126
