With reference to the article written by Tom Colborn. I do not know the gentleman, and, certainly understand and respect his right to speak what is on his mind. What he must also realize that there are certain freedoms that he has. I agree, there are many problems in Costa Rica, but, he also has the freedom to pickup and move! It is a short trip to Panamá, Nicaragua, Belize or the United States. If you are in an unhappy marriage, you can get a divorce. If you are not happy in Costa Rica, no one is standing there with their fingers on a trigger forcing you to stay. Personally, I am glad my pensionado application is filed, and cannot wait to make my move to Costa Rica.
