Well, since I can’t really write a review on Amazon for my hubby’s book, that would look kinda weird (and subjective)… I’ll do a blog post instead!
Greg is now an author, and I couldn’t be prouder of him. When he first came up with the idea to write a guidebook on tips for visiting or living in Costa Rica, I thought it was a great idea. Once he started writing it, I soon discovered it was a better and better idea. This was THE BOOK we were always looking for before we moved here, but could never find!
When we first started researching Costa Rica as a possible place to live, it was really hard to find out the little nuances of really living there – without actually living there.
Sure, there were websites and facebook groups – all of which were helpful to us; but it wasn’t until AFTER we moved here that we REALLY started learning about all the little tips and tricks of the ways things are done here.
Costa Rica IS a foregin country, so of course things are different here.
This book will help you with things like…
- what to do with toilet paper in most public restrooms…
- how to not get reprimanded when walking into a bank…
- what the heck does “con mucho gusto” mean?
- what is taking the bill so long after I’m done eating in a restaurant?
- how to easily convert colones to dollars in your head (even non-math people can do this!)…
- what is the unspoken word by Costa Ricans?
- how to make lots of money (just kidding)…
If you are planning to move here – you need to read this book. I say this with the utmost confidence that this book will help you! I am positive there will be stuff in it that you did not know before reading it. If you disagree, please contact me directly.
If you are planning to visit here – this book will be helpful to you as well! Costa Rica is such a beautiful and kind country, and the better informed you are about it – well, it will just make you look smarter, and who doesn’t want that?
Greg’s e-book is just $3 on amazon: “Living In and Visiting Costa Rica: 100 Tips, Tricks, Traps and Facts”
Paperback book will be coming SOON, stay tuned!
