    It seems as though Costa Rica is touted as a retirement paradise. But what about us younger folks who want to make the move? What kind of opportunities, if any, exist for recent college grads?


    The problem is one of immigration.

    It is MUCH easier for you to get legal residency in Costa Rica as a ‘pensionado’ than it would be for a younger person who wants to come here and maybe try and make a living.

    For college graduates there are opportunities but normally only if you have truly UNIQUE qualifications and if you are completely bilingual – that would help big-time. But, even when you do find a job in Costa Rica, the wages will not be what you get ‘back-home.’

    It is EXTREMELY difficult for a young non-US person to move to the USA work and it’s not easy here either …



    i have been looking for any information regarding dual residencey. i have found nothing. do you any of the requirments to have it.
