We are here visiting for another 10 days... we live in Canada right now but are seriously considering buying a home here so we could live here part of the year... probably on the south coast near Dominical...

Dh is Costa Rican and we will be moving back there in one year, possibly sooner. We stay in Santa Ana but will be living on our land in Guanacaste near the beach once we get settled in. I was surprised there is no Central American tribe.

We've just moved to San Jose. We are staying with friends out in Belen (close to the airport), but will be moving to the San Francisco area of San Jose to start language school at the end of this month.

we got back from CR about 2 weeks ago... it was our 3rd trip in 2 years and we plan to be back in the fall if we can swing it... we're definitely wanting to buy property near Dominical and we need to find some other families with kids of similar ages next time... my kids love CR but miss their friends in Canada when we're away...

I'm not exactly near the beach, but you can get there in 2 hours <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Want to swap houses?<br><br>
We have a little place (3 bed, 2 bath) in the mountains of San Antonio de Escazu. High speed internet, car, backyard with fruit trees, spring water piped to the house.<br><br>
We'd love to go hang out in BC for a bit!!

We have a house in Turrialba in the Central Valley about an hour and a half bus ride east from San Jose. We only live there one month a year (just returned to Minnesota in March), but my 4 yo is begging to go back because he misses his friends. Today he "wrote" a letter to his best friend down there.

We are living on the south east side of San Jose, right now, while we are at language school, but will be moving around to the other side of the city (to San Antonio de Belen - just north of Santa Ana) this December. While we are here in Costa Rica, I will be homeschooling my oldest for pre-school, kindergarten and 1st grade.

I am actually meeting with a midwife tomorrow. Unfortunately the law here is not very favourable to midwives. They are ONLY allowed to practice in medical centres - but there are no medical centres that accept them (at least in my area - Santa Ana). Home births are illegal.<br><br>
PM me if you want the contact info for the midwife I am seeing or for more info. We haven't decided if we're going to use the midwife or not.
