"One of the biggest mistakes people make in retiring offshore is equating affordability with quality of life," says best-selling author on retiring in Costa Rica Christopher Howard. His view on the attraction of retiring in Central America? "You grow up, go to college, choose your career, get married, your kids grow up and BOOM – what do you do? Come to a place like this!

In January of 2011, I was privileged to have a conversation with two experts on retiring in Costa Rica: Christopher Howard and Robert Shannon. Christopher Howard is a world-renowned expert on Costa Rica. His best-selling book The New Golden Door toRetirement and Living in Costa Rica is available on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Golden-Door-Retirement-Living-Costa/dp/1881233650/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1295044029&sr=1-3. Wall Street Journal said, 'If you want to live or invest in Costa Rica, READ this book.' Christopher has published more than 10 books on living, retiring and investing in several of the countries in Central America. Christopher also did a special on Costa Rica for the National Geographic magazine. Read Christopher's blogs and find out about his retirement relocation tours at www.liveincostarica.com.
Robert Shannon helps people find the right property for retiring, vacationing or investing in Costa Rica. His website and tours provide detailed information on buying a property in Costa Rica, as well as cost of living, owning a business and many other practical concerns.

Money is tight, and people are looking for options to save on medical costs, especially in retirement. I spent the beginning of this year in Costa Rica, investigating the practical solutions to both medical and cost-of-living concerns of many Americans who approach their retirement with dread, rather than eager anticipation.
The majority of Americans do not plan for retirement, even though it is an essential part of their financial security. Here are a few suggestions for finding the motivation, or the energy, to start on your path to prosperity.
What’s at Stake
