Question by Paul B: What is the law in Costa Rica about finding treasure on state property? Like does the finder get to keep it?
or does the government of Costa Rica just confiscate it?
Answer by JAN
Most countries have a split, it also counts if you have filed for the search and have spent great amounts of money and time.
It seems they change the rules to fit their greed and is hung up in court for a long time.

Question by Jennifer P: Can anyone tell me from personal experience what Costa Rica is like?
My family and I would like to visit Costa Rica, possible retire there in 5 years. Can anyone tell me what its really like, not just what we read in brochures? Do you have to speak Spanish or can we get along ok with just english? Crime? Economy?
Answer by mora
It really depends on where you live, there are many very nice towns and there are other places that really aren’t so nice (but they are completely avoidable). You don’t need to speak Spanish to live here, it would obviously help but you will see that everyone will make try their best to communicate with you in your language because that’s how people here are. In certain areas of Costa Rica there is alot of crime, specially in certain areas of San Jose like “La Carpio” or “Leon XIII”, ive lived here ever since i was born and i havent ever been to any of these two places or any other place that’s considered just as dangerous, you can avoid them and as long as you do nothing will happen.
There are a lot of very safe towns like Escazu, Santa Ana, Rohmoser, Cuidad Colon all of these are nice places to live too (close to malls, hospitals, etc). Regarding the economy, well Costa Rica is a country has been developing at a very fast rate, if you go around the city you will see many many tall buildings being built, many new roads too, the economy is at a constant growth and its a very popular country for international companies to invest because of the high level of education people have here. Obviously the worldwide economical crisis has affected the country but everything seems to be moving normally. Costa Rica is one of the few countries in the world that fit in the category of “second world” country, because it has many things that put it in the category of a first world country but there are certain things that are keeping us from being one. Health care is also very good here, proof of that is the fact that we have one of the highest life expectancies in the whole world, much higher than many so called first world countries.
Overall i think this is a very nice place to live, i honestly wouldn’t change it for nothing. The people, the weather, the beaches, the mountains and everything else that makes Costa Rica be Costa Rica make this an amazing place to be at. It has is negative sides like every country, but most of them are things that you can stay away from. My ex girlfriend is from michigan and she moved down here 1 year ago and she absolutely loves it, she won’t ever go back to living in the US…
So, if you are planning on moving here. You might probably want to come first for a visit and see for yourself the place you would be living at. But i’m sure that once you move down here after picking the right place, you wont be disappointed and you wont ever want to leave!
That’s my opinion as a costarrican and a person who has experience living in other countries (US, Canada, Spain).
Hope that helps you decide

keep in mind that were not touring the cities or places at all. mainly staying at a resort.
Answer by WilliamG
Costa Rica’s beaches and jungles are beautiful and full of wildlife (monkeys, parrots, tapirs, deer, snakes and butterflies}. The capital City, San Jose, is a bit crime-ridden as we live along the cocaine route between South America and Mexico/USA. Costa Rican food is somewhat bland to American tastes, but exotic fruits and fishes abound. The primary meat is pork. WilliamG.

No I want citizenship!
Answer by Penguin iz Plug 5
I have dual citizenship for the UK & the USA. My mum did it for me though. Ask your mom for help. I think your best hope would be to contact the Costa Rican embassy and ask them.

Health Check Costa Rica’s true inception began when my baby sister developed hepatitis C from a bad blood transfusion in the late 1980’s. We rallied as a family and when she bounced back after a year I really thought that we had averted this crisis permanently. I knew she had to take some medication but in every other way things were back to normal. Little did I know that 15 years later the disease had taken a toll that required her to seek a full liver transplant. The year we spent battling this with her was a year I will never forget. This was a year that had me inside a hospital almost every single day. I sold my house and quit working so that I would have money to help and to be by her side full time. I saw from the inside exactly what was good and what was bad about our health care system. What struck me was that like in so many walks of life there was the good and the bad that needed to be accepted and sometimes shades of gray not easily interpreted. But some iniquities were simply too harsh. What struck me and stuck with me during this experience, the observations that both affected me and often infuriated me is why I eventually formed Health Check Costa Rica.
From the stories that I heard and the people I met it in the hospital it was very clear and quite tragic that there were people dying every day because they were being turned away from quality care from lack of funds or adequate insurance. I truly thought this iniquity to be inexcusable in a country of such wealth and majesty. It screamed of injustice and seemed so random as to be akin to rolling dice. If you had good insurance or worked for the right company or had the right education then you were Ok. If not you were turned out to die. It’s that simple. It’s that harsh.
Ultimately my sister’s Hospital bills topped out at over a million dollars. In seeing those numbers and seeing the astronomical prices for certain things it occurred to me that no one could really afford this except for the top .01% of the population. So how could we even as a society afford this? Where did these prices come from? Well I translate it something like this. These are insurance companies paying these bills. Patients are not usually going line by line and challenging certain outrageous costs. No these are insurance companies approving these expenses and then meeting behind closed doors to figure out how to pass this on to the consumer and still make a buck. Hence the ridiculous prices for health insurance and ultimately health care and really why a majority of people remain uninsured. The health insurance companies have dropped the ball and the thinking is “as long as we are making our percentage, well the higher the better.”
Lastly litigation has helped skyrocket the price of care and really has forced doctors in to a no win situation. An OB GYN in Florida is required by law to pay as high as 0,000 dollars per year for medical malpractice insurance. That’s right, 200k before they can make a dollar for themselves. Who do you think ultimately pays this? You the consumer! One additional reason so many remain uninsured is this lack of long overdue tort reform and absurd compensations. Finally the tragic result I saw with my own eyes in my sister’s case was these high powered surgeons in high risk areas were forced to carry such a heavy case load to pay off these insurance costs that none were able to give their patients the care or personal attention they needed or the attention they deserved. They were forced to use lesser skilled underlings to catch complex diagnoses and symptoms and I can tell you straight up. THIS DOES NOT WORK. The system is terribly broken.
The day my sister finally left Spaulding Rehabilitation hospital in Boston was the day I set out on my adventure to Costa Rica with my jeep Cherokee loaded for jungle survival. With all my computer equipment and clothes, my dog Seikan and I began our long dangerous drive to Costa Rica, neither of us with any Spanish just a lot of hope for a new life. Costa Rica really has much to offer and we have enjoyed living here and working and while many of things we take for granted in the United States do not exist here conversely neither do many of the bad things. I am constantly struck by the lack of sirens, and airplanes each time I hear this it is surprising to me. Infrastructure still has a long way to catch up to the US but one of the big surprises I had when I began research for Health Check several years ago was that the overall health care system was ranked higher than the United States in the world in overall quality of care, and has an incredible network of internationally accredited Hospitals, surgeons, and after care facilities that rival the care in the US. The people of Costa Rica have the second longest life spans of all countries in the world, and were ranked in a worldwide study as some of the happiest people on earth. As I continued my studies in to this business I realized that it was possible to form a service that would allow people in the United States and Canada to seek out quality affordable health care close to home at up to an 80% discount with all of the worries of organizing details and itineraries to us. People who could not afford health care could suddenly have access to truly quality health care less than three hours away from many major airports in the U.S. To me this was more than a business opportunity it was an opportunity to make a difference in peoples’ lives, a chance to serve and a chance to help.
