On purpose, I have listed 7 inspiring retirement homes in Costa Rica in all price ranges, so you don’t think you need to spend millions to buy something nice.

The South Pacific coast offers you some real inspiring retirement homes because you will find most are in the mountains overlooking the ocean and the national parks.
