Group Description

This is a forum for those who want to know the truth about Costa Rica, without any sugar coating. That means that newcomers should not expect to be mollycoddled - ever - nor for us to be PC. It is only lightly moderated, but we will NOT tolerate foul language, personal attacks, or any kind of flaming, spamming, or other misuse of the internet. No advertising will be allowed, although members may include a link to their personal websites in their signatures. As initially set up this forum does not have built-in links, archives, or "Read This First" sections. Those may come later, if/when needed. Members are expected to have performed minimal research before posting questions that have already been answered ad infinitum and ad nauseum elsewhere. If the forum owner feels that a post shows a lack of groundwork, the poster may be referred elsewhere.

I would like to welcome all to what I hope will be a place for real and correct information about Costa Rica. I have been active for some years on a number of forums dealing with this country - both while researching and planning our own move there, and since we did move there in 2009. I have found that too many forums appear to exist solely for the ego of the individual forum owners, or for business purposes, and moderating tends to be (imho) heavily weighted towards excluding free exchange of information and ideas. I do not want to see this deteriorate into wild political discussions, so please refrain from taking strong political positions. I do not intend to moderate at all, until or unless things get out of hand.

I do expect members to behave as adults, and - to repeat - I will not allow any advertising. Let me repeat that one more time, since I don't know how to underline, use italics, or put those letters in Bold Font: NO ADVERTISING!
Drop me a note any time, or ask your questions here in the open.

Now, here is your major disclaimer: I do not now, nor do I intend to ever again live in Costa Rica.
