SOLD-102 Years Old and Still Enjoying Her Retirement in San Vito, Costa Rica.
Towards the end of his life, Sigmund Freud apparently decided that it wasn’t sex that subconsciously motivated everybody but the fear of death instead.
When one of my sisters confronted my mother about her travel plans with the cruel (but obviously true) statement that she was “moving to Costa Rica to die”, my mother strenuously objected, saying: “I am moving to Costa Rica to live, not die!” But it is obvious that wherever we reside on this mortal plane, we will all do both those things (in that same order) whatever our druthers about it.
We chose to relocate to San Vito in Coto Brus, Puntarenas, in the South Central Pacific highlands of Costa Rica sight unseen through some Internet researching. The cost of properties in the Central Valley/San Jose area (as well as San Isidro del General) were beyond our meager means; and the expense of air conditioning in coastal areas was something we wanted to avoid (along with the experience of needing to have air conditioning).
Daytime temperatures are rarely so hot that you have to strip down to your skivvies (like tourists do in more touristy areas) and the nighttimes are so cool that after midnight you sometimes cower in bed under your comforter for warm. Besides all that there is good Italian food and a friendly mix of European, Guaymi Indian, and Tico populations.
A few, however, are lucky enough in this life to already reside in such a place where my mother is still alive and kicking at age 102 to the chagrin of her oldest daughter who still hides from the forbidding snows back in her forlorn house in Idaho.
