Last week there was an article in amcostarica about the new tourista law. We are perpetual tourista's so this pertained to us. The real bummer was that the law was not favorable to us at all. In fact we were seriously thinking about exiting because of the complexity of the law. The guy who reported the new law to the newspaper evidently "did not fully understand it" and there was a reprint today.
The new law is actually favorable for us and we were very relieved. We now only have to leave the country once a year, instead of every 90 days, and the other renewals can be done, (for a fee of course) at the airport. This is going to save us tons of money as well as time, since we no longer have to leave. We had gotten the leaved down to about $400.00 per leave, but now we don't actually have to do it.
Not that I don't love, love, love San Jaun del Sur of course who wouldn't? But when we are having classes, or the kids are involved in things, or we have nobody to watch the dogs, this is going to be so much easier.
So if anyone is thinking about moving to Costa Rica, now is the time to make that move :)
