I am seriously considering moving to Costa Rica for a long duration (years). But it seems moving there from the US can be pretty tricky. I cannot seem to find any definitive information online.
The best outcome would be I just pack up, fly down there, and start my new life. That, as it turns out, is impossible.
So I am wondering how to go about moving there and getting a job. It seems there are various options for retired/pensioned people, but for someone who still needs to work for a living, I don't understand how I can go to Costa Rica and get a job!
Is it possible to go there on a 90-day tourist Visa, and find a job during that time (then apply for a work visa, etc.)? Or is there some other way to go about it? The crux here is that I won't have a job until I go there and find one (hopefully)!
If it's possible, will there be time limits? My ultimate goal is to become a resident. Could I find a job and live happily ever after? If it's not possible in Costa Rica, is it in any other Central American countries?
