Retirement Tours

There is nothing more comprehensive than a Christopher Howard Retirement Relocation Tour

NOTE: These are not a real estate tours but a lifestyle tours for people who are thinking of moving here. At the request of former clients a few carefully selected properties are included to give you a sampling of what different living situations are like. Furthermore don’t confuse the COMPREHENSIVE/LICENSED tours below with the one-day “residential tour” offered at the Association of Residents of Costa Rica’s (ARCR) seminar or any other similar tours.

Our tours are MORE than one day and cover MORE areas than just the ones near San José. ALL of our tours are led by an experienced bilingual real retirement /relocation EXPERT who has written a BESTSELLER on the subject.
