5.0 out of 5 stars An Expert Shares His Knowledge, January 24, 2011
Cost Rica offers some huge advantages for retirees, and Christopher Howard brings us up to date in this clear and fascinating new edition. To help retirees decide which areas of the country are best to live in, Mr. Howard describes each one in detail. He also explains the new immigration law as well as the excellent health care that's available in Costa Rica at an affordable cost. I was also impressed with the section on where and how to buy real estate. If you're considering Costa Rica as a place to retire, I'm sure that this book will save you time and money. In the process, you'll have more opportunities to enjoy Costa Rica's beautiful beaches, terrific fishing, superb climate and friendly people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking Into The Future, January 5, 2010
Though few people realize the significance of water, it's quickly becoming one of the most important issues of our day -- not just for governments but for people themselves in their daily lives. As a business journalist, I was fascinated by the way Solomon lets readers in on what is rarely discussed in the media. Robert Kennedy Jr. was right when he said that this book sheds new light on crucial challenges that water has created. Anyone who enjoyed "Cadillac Desert" will be even more interested in what Solomon has to say about the relentless struggle for economic and political power shaping our society.
You don't have to be a history buff to enjoy sections of the book that explain how water played a key role in shaping past civilizations -- and that's a part of history that readers will rarely discover anywhere else. If I have any criticism, it's that this section isn't even longer. Solomon tells an important and fascinating story that will lead readers to think about tomorrow's challenges every time they turn on the tap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a "Golden Door", July 31, 2007
For many years Costa Rica has attracted Americans who live there for all or part of the year. Many of the ones I've spoken with say that Christopher Howard's book made the transition much, much easier. This new edition is especially helpful. It takes readers step by step through the process of finding real estate and also explains how to have fun - sunning on beautiful beaches, swimming in the ocean, playing golf or just hanging out with the neighbors. Costa Rica has excellent but low-cost medical care, and Howard's book tells readers how to find it. The book is indeed a "Golden Door."
