It's no secret that over the years, Costa Rica has become a hot spot for expats. This might have something to do with the fact that Costa Rica is the most democratically stable country in Central America and boasts 5% of the world's flora and fauna in one tiny postage stamp sized country on this beautiful planet of ours. Then again there is the weather factor.
