Low cost of living in Costa Rica

For sure you can live like a rock star in Costa Rica on $4,000 per month. Most expats, though, report that they are living quite happily and without sacrifices on a monthly budget of $1,500 to $2,500. That’s for two people living in a mid-range, two-bedroom home, and includes rent, utilities, transportation and Internet.

You’ll save, too, on the little things that matter the most, but can add up. Like:

• Ticket to see a movie in a modern theater — $5
• Tickets to see a cultural event at the National Theater start at $2
• Ticket to see a National Soccer Team Match in the brand-new stadium — $20
• Fresh Red Snapper — approximately $2.50 per pound
• A pound of beans — $0.90 per pound
• A pound of rice — $0.50 per pound
• Four avocadoes — $2
• Pineapples — $1 each
• A bottle of Imperial beer — $1.25
• A pack of local cigarettes — $2.20
• Bus ride from downtown San Jose to Escazu — $0.55
• Bus ride from San Jose to Jaco Beach (60 miles) — $4.11

But it’s not just the potential cost savings that you should consider… it’s the overall improvement in your quality of life. Better weather. Beautiful scenery. Healthcare that’s not only high quality, but affordable. Less stress. And one more thing…
