The Downsides of Living in Costa Rica & Why I Left with Rebecca Anderson
In this weeks episode of travel, relocation, inspiration and living in Costa Rica Adam has a chat with Rebecca who lived in Costa Rica for 7 years between 2011 & 2018 before she moved back to the US.
The beach town of Samara was her home whilst she lived in Costa Rica. She has traveled all over the country and is still a travel consultant planning vacations to Costa Rica, now from Denver , Colorado.
We find what it was that pushed her to go back to the us and leave Costa Rica, from the small town, to dating in Costa Rica and limited culture, it all had an impact.
