"I love your newsletter. I am working on moving to Costa Rica for the US winters and it and your book on buying real estate in Costa Rica has been a big help!"

Gene Hamilton. U.S.

"I just want to thank you for your newsletters. Not only are they helpful, chock full of info but it also helps me with my Spanish lessons.

Debi Fisher. USA.

"I wanted to personally thank you for the website information as well as your book. Since I began investigating Costa Rica about 5 years ago, I have settled on and purchased 6 acres of lakefront on Lake Arenal and am in the process of putting together my plan to build a home. Your advice via your book and website, along with the recommendations of professionals to work with, helped me to avoid a number of pitfalls in the process. Thanks Again!"

SA in Austin, Texas. U.S.

"Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you again for your website. I find it to be incredibly informative and it is helping to fill in a lot of the blanks I have about life in Costa Rica. I am so appreciative of the fact I have a place to go on the web that is on the "up and up." There is so much bullshit out there.........and so refreshing to find a place that feels like "home." Keep up the good work."

Gary Amoth. U.S.

"Thanks for protecting us with your knowledge and expertise."

Sue Hannibal, USAR. Fort Bragg, NC USA.

"We consider ourselves very lucky to come across and subscribe to your wonderful WeloveCostaRica newsletter. You literally make our day every time we get one. It is so interesting, so informative and so much fun. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this newsletter, which is like a precious gift to us!"

Larissa and Tim. Ontario, Canada.

"Your site has helped my husband and myself make our move to Costa Rica. We started out by buying your book and has helped every step of the way, from getting recommendations on the forum regarding the best satellite dish professional to evaluating how to get our 13 year old pot-bellied pig here.  I just wanted to thank you and tell you that we appreciate your GREAT work!"

Kathy Dyhr, USA.

"I just want to say thank you for your website, video and book. I appreciate your honesty in disclosing the pitfalls one can run into when dealing with real estate in Costa Rica. Having been a widow for a number of years now, I have come to understand the value of having reliable, honest people to deal with. This network of good, dependable business and professional people you have developed makes a great comfort zone within which to operate in a foreign country. The knowledge you have provided me with has given me the courage to pursue a dream, that I may not have pursued otherwise."

Cheryl DuPlessis. Greenville Junction, Maine

"Hola Scott! It was some time ago when I asked you for a reference to legal counsel for a particularly ornery situation with MINAE. Well, we FINALLY got the last permit to complete the construction of our vacation villa in Manuel Antonio. Your recommendation led us to an environmental law specialist, Lic. Mauricio Salas. Thanks to Sr. Salas, we have prevailed in every instance over the MINAE follies. We are very pleased and have you to thank for the introduction(s) that led us to the right guy who got the job done. Saludos y muchisimas gracias."

Coleman Alderson, Manuel Antonio. Costa Rica.

"I have been a VIP member for a while on your site + you are a wealth of information for me. You recommended John McGee to me months ago for health insurance and I got my girlfriend and myself excellent coverage and John is really a nice person to deal with. I have also used 2 different lawyers from your site for title searches and they too were very professional and efficient. Thanks for any help and I appreciate everything that you have done for us already. I bought your book a long time ago and it was the most informative book on Costa Rica I have ever read and definitely the Bible for buying real estate in Costa Rica. This will be my second property here thanks to this book and the information that I gained from not only reading but applying what I read."

Lewis Alongis.

"I enjoy your weekly news letter. It is very informative, I always learn something new :)"

Jazmin Sanchez Solano, San Jose. Costa Rica

"I have to write and say that I think your site is the best site in internet history. No really. I go into withdrawals if I don't receive your emails. This may sound selfish but I will be leaving FL in 4 years and retiring in CR. I hope nothing happens to you between now and then because I just don't know what I will do with out your articles keeping me up to date and informing me of the latest deals and all the other misc. great stuff about CR. This information tells me how the economy is going in CR and how I should be planning my retirement. Take care of yourself and always wear your seat belt."

Mary in FL, USA

"I have researched countless numbers of websites and have found yours to be the most comprehensive, informative and helpful website regarding Costa Rica.

Truthfully I can say that the time spent on your website helped me make the judgment I needed to recognize a great opportunity with a great deal confidence. I know that your education contributed much to my understanding about what is fact and what is fiction about retiring to Costa Rica."

Tom in Portland. Oregon.

We are so glad you saved us over $100,000 in losses so far. Enough to make a sizeable down payment on a piece of paradise in Costa Rica. Thanks!"

Steve and Eve. Charlotte, NC. USA

"I received my Costa Rica Fair Trade coffee yesterday and had my first cup this morning. It was as wonderful as I remembered. I was missing the view of the Costa Rica coffee bushes across the mountain hills, but it did bring back the memories of sunshine, butterflies, bright flowers and the gorgeous view. Pretty amazing that a cup of coffee can do all this!"

Lisa. USA

"I would like to take a moment to appreciate Scott and applaud what I think is a fabulous discussion board with a wide variety of opinions. It is obviously the best place on the net to exchange opinions about CR and to catch up on important issues."

Diego Vega, USA & Costa Rica.

"My husband and I just returned from Costa Rica. Scott Oliver is everything he says he is and more. We highly recommend him, his web site, his book, map and advice, and more. We really appreciate everything he puts into this venture-it has made life so much easier for those of us considering Costa Rica as our retirement home."

Amelia and Philip Lewis. Alabama, USA.

"I believe anyone considering Costa Rica owes you a debt of gratitude for putting your time into this site - it is wonderful. And you make it abundantly clear why you have taken your stance with various developers... Your integrity shows throughout. What your forum has done for me is to reiterate again how important it is to keep a very close watch on the progress of these developments. Thanks again for your work."

Robert Pearce, USA. USA

"I bought the Costa Rica map you recommended, the package was nicely done and the delivery was very prompt too. Very nice. I give it five stars."

Rahul Thacker, USA. USA

"Scott, just wanted to say that the site looks very good, is run very well and is a very useful tool as well provides for quite an interesting read. It is clear that it was conceived and is run by a very intelligent, insightful person. The site is easy to navigate, has decent graphics. By far, it is the most professional-looking site related to CR that I have encountered and one is compelled to feel that the info on the site comes from a trustworthy, dependable source. That's saying a lot when dealing with matters related to CR because gosh knows how much sensationalism normally surrounds the topic! Thanks and keep up the great work!"

Chuck Crider, Orlando, FL. USA

"I just wanted to tell you how effective and helpful your site is. I have researched living in Costa Rica, searched for real estate, rented a car, purchased top-quality products, and talked to others about CR in your forum.

I can honestly say that I can not refute with confidence anything you have said in your forums, or represented on your website. You do more for Costa Rica than any ambassador could ever hope for. You're one of about three people I completely trust in Costa Rica when it comes to any recommendation. You tell it like it is. Any profit you make on your book is well deserved. Thank you for providing this invaluable service."
