Living on the sunny Floridian coast, most people might think that Bob Normand was already made in the shade. Then he discovered Costa Rica, where the beaches were even more pristine, the living was even more relaxed, and the fishing was even better.
Bob has had plenty of experience with the healthcare system in Costa Rica, and he’s found it to be not only much more affordable than back home, but of great quality too.
I came from Sarasota, Florida to Quepos in 2008 to retire, after having checked out the area in eight prior visits over five years. I was looking for a spot near the ocean and close to the diverse wildness for which Costa Rica is famous.
I have lived in five U.S. States and three countries and, for the past 10 years, I have been an expat resident in Quepos, a small town on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. I can truly say I’ve never enjoyed living in a place more than I have here...
I am a beachophile. Having grown up on Plum Island, north of Boston and lived in Sarasota, Florida for 10 years, salt water is in my blood. Florida appealed to me because as a veteran Northeasterner, I wanted to get away from the snow and ice.
