  • Dave Karney

    Love the podcast. After learning of your desire to move to Costa Rica, I couldn’t recommend more, the Expat Files Living in Latin America Podcast with Johnny Mueller. He’s been down in LA for over 20 years and has a wealth of knowledge. He does not recommend Costa Rica or anywhere else that has been contaminated by the Gringo dollar. You can move to somewhere off the tourist trail where your money is worth 4x the amount. You can live the same middle class life there on as little as $1,500 a month! Labor is real cheap and the bulk of the population makes $300-$400 a MONTH! Check it out. Love to hear the feedback and keep up the great work!

  • Sincere

    Thanks for the info, Dave. I just subscribed to Mueller’s podcast. I’m looking forward to listening to what he has to share from his experiences as an ex-pat. Also, I appreciate you listening to our show. If you don’t mind, could you drop us a quick review in iTunes. Thanks.

    Sincere~
