An international survey of expats puts Costa Rica first in having the best weather.
The survey comes as no surprise. The organization InterNations asked the question about weather in its survey of expats in 195 countries. There were 14,000 respondents.
“If you move to Costa Rica, Cyprus or Greece, you can be sure to enjoy the outdoors almost every day of the year,” said InterNations. “Other destinations with fine temperatures include Malta, Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Spain, Portugal and Mexico.”
Said the organization about Costa Rica:
“The country clinches the 12th spot out of 64 countries in the
overall ranking of the survey. One prominent factor for its high rank is the weather and climate, with 71 percent of the respondents living there rating it as very good. The friendly locals and great work-life balance are just some of the reasons why expats decide to move to this tropical paradise. Unlike many other destinations that are mostly career-focused, the most popular reasons for moving to Costa Rica are for a better quality of life and a thirst for adventure.”
Other countries with great weather scored poorly in security. That included Uganda and Kenya.
“North America, Oceania and Asia, let alone Antarctica, the seventh continent, did not receive much appraisal when it comes to good climate,” said InterNations.
Ireland rated in the bottom 10 because despite having outstanding beer and whiskey, there is a lot of rain.
