  1. Hi! I’ve been following your videos, love all the info! I’m going to CR on Sunday and have been reading negative things about renting cars there. Can I have your opinion on that? Do you recommend any reputable car rental company?

  2. HOW RIGHT YOU ARE, WANDA ! During our 5 years in San Ramon de Alajuela, we encountered SO MUCH bureaucracy & duplication ! Since I am Tica / American, I had less problems. But my husband had to go thru the whole scenario with immigration, to get his "residencia" and "cedula". And DON’T even talk about CONSTRUCTION delays & problems ! Caramba !

  3. glad you have learned to deal with the frustration of day to day dealings in c.r…i have dealt with the banks as well there even though my tica wife has an account it is still a nightmare. they just don’t see why people get upset about all the run around just to do a little banking…they also are not multi-taskers at all or inclined to resolve minor issues on their own….anyways, pura vida Wanda…

  4. Ran into a lot of issues when my husband tried to open an account at a bank when we were there in July. We are moving there in a few weeks and will attempt to try again. Trying to be mentally prepared. Thank you for this video.

  5. Eso es lo que pasa, el maldito gobierno al poner tantos requisitos estúpidos y con funcionarios ineficientes lo que hace es alejar la inversión extranjera,
    Y la economía nacional se va para el carajo

  6. Thank you, Wanda. Although we are just beginning our own personal Costa Rica adventure, I am sure there will be times when our patience will wear thin. We are fortunate to have your videos to help us with the transition from what we expect while in the US and what to expect while in CR.

  7. Did you establish a relationship with your Banker? And what bank are you dealing with?
    I’m not there yet but I understand you need to establish a relationship with one agent , works best.
