Here you can find a list with variety of different reasons that we received from nationals or foreigners (expats), who decided to leave Costa Rica.

Check the reasons that motivated them or have played a roll on their decision to leave Costa Rica.

Our list is not a complete list and of course doesn't include all the reasons that exist. We are constantly updating the list, so if you see that the reasons, that motivated you are not included, let us know. We will be more than happy to add it.
