  1. This was so informative. Great interview! I am from the Virgin Islands and we had the book "Don’t Stop The Carnival" in our family library. I laughed at Mike’s mention of this!!!! Took me back to my childhood.

  2. Love your videos, love Costa Rica! Live the dream !
    Is this a recent trip, I would love to come dine at Mike’s place, but is it open right now? Costa Rica 🇨🇷 is a dreamy place. What is the date of this interview? Looks like pre Covid?

  3. As an American seriously considering a move to CR, this was a spectacular video. My career allows me to work anywhere, but I would love to buy an existing business where I could assist and have supplemental income.

  4. Going back to San Jose the landscape was out of the jurasic period expecting Tyranno Saurus Rex to appear at any moment. Speedy Gonzales got me fast outa there.

  5. Well done Mike! I agree "Costa Rica is on the verge of exploding" We own a restaurant in Playas Del Coco and love the balance of life and work. We are actually expanding our brand! Totally worth the move to Costa Rica. No regrets.

  6. Im a surfer from Hawaii and used to frequent the Philippines but they seem to prefer to stay closed. This means I am now looking at Colombia or Costa Rica. Is life better there than in the Philippines? I like socializing and good vibes… nature.. Thanks!
