As usual, The American European Real Estate MLS tries to be helpful by not only sell or rent you a property in Costa Rica. We also try to make your move to Costa Rica a lot more comfortable. That’s why we’ll give you now 68 interesting Facebook pages, all for free.
You can check a wide range of blogs that are designed to show you how living in Costa Rica can be very comfortable if you start with the right foot. The use of Facebook group pages makes it more and more comfortable to find what you are looking for, to make friends, and to adjust to your new country by finding people who have the same interests as you have.
Some of us moved from our home country to go native, to learn Spanish and to try a different lifestyle. Others moved to Costa Rica with the same idea but were never able to live like a native and need the help of others to keep the same lifestyle as they had before they moved.
For this blog, I have tried to find as many Facebook pages as possible, that allow you to find all those groups that might interest you in a heartbeat, so you can connect with others just like you. Of course, once you’ve checked all those Facebook pages out and you’re ready to purchase real estate in Costa Rica, we would love your business. Remember, we are the Costa Rica Real Estate specialists, from Coast to Coast, the Right Way!!!
Many of these Costa Rica Facebook pages cover the whole country while others cover only a specific area or a specific interest. Have fun!
