How to retire for less in Costa Rica and still be happy

How to retire for less in Costa Rica and still be happyYou think you can’t afford to retire abroad? You’ve probably been reading on forums and news sites that Costa Rica has become more expensive than it was before, so you’re afraid you will be able to make that big step. 
 
You’re not rich and you would like to retire anyway, but can you make it on just your retirement income? Are you on social security and want to retire in Costa Rica? It’s a fact that a lot of people who read the weekly Ivo’s blog are far from being rich and have a retirement income of less than $25,000.
 
Allow me to introduce you to the people who have a lot of experience in how to retire for less in Costa Rica. They have done so themselves in 2009 and made it their main task in their retirement life to tell everybody about it, every month.
 
I met Gloria and Paul Yeatman a few years ago on an International Living conference in Cancun – Mexico, where Rudy Matthews and I were promoting retirement in Costa Rica.
