Re-Locating to Costa Rica

Thinking about moving to Costa Rica with your family? Family values and ties are a very important aspect of life in Costa Rica. Within 30 minutes of Tamarindo, we are fortunate to have some wonderful private bi-lingual schools; La Paz Community School, and Country Day School. Due to the importance of strong family units and close family connections, you will find that Costa Rica, especially in the Tamarindo area is a great place to raise a family.

Family life in Costa Rica may seem like family life back home, depending on where you are from, or it may seem more traditional than what you are used to. The area offers many activities for families through school sports teams, surfing clubs, and community events. It’s common for the families in the area to spend an afternoon together on the beach grilling out, playing in the water and sharing life together.

The local Ticos have very close families. When you go out to eat or to an event in town, it is common to see many generations all out together. From newborns to great-grandparents, the whole family will usually spend special occasions and outings together. If a Costa Rican friend invites you over to his or her house, be prepared to meet the whole family, since many Costa Ricans either live with or spend the majority of their free time with their family.

If you have a baby in Costa Rica or move here with your young children, you can expect much of your new community to take an interest in your child. Because children are seen as very important members of society, making sure they receive a good education is very important to Costa Ricans. This is part of the reason why Costa Rica has such a strong education system.

Family life in Costa Rica has a very strong foundation so moving to Costa Rica with your children can be a great decision. You will be immersed in a culture that values family connections and respects the rights of children. Raising a family in this environment can help you strengthen your own family values and relationships. You can feel confident that moving to Costa Rica with you family will have a positive impact on your family life.
