For anyone seriously considering a move to Costa Rica I would highly recommend taking one of Christopher's tours. We took a combined beach and central valley tour. The knowledge and information we received was incredibly valuable and covered both the positives and challenges if one were to take on a move to Costa Rica. Like many things in life, the more you learn the more you realize you don't know yet. In our case we learned a ton but are also aware there is much more to learn/experience to this wonderful country if we want to call ourselves truly educated.

This being said, Christopher did a great job of getting us introduced to a large number of support resources one would want to leverage in their relocations including but not limited to lawyers, fellow expats, real estate agents and health care professionals. I can't imagine trying to move to Costa Rica or any other foreign country without having taken a tour like this and gaining all the contacts we now have.

Besides all the valuable content and knowledge we also had a great and relaxing time too. The assortment of hotels. restaurants and other stops was top notch and of great variety. There was enough downtime for us to catch our breath and truly enjoy the beautiful Costa Rican countryside and sites. I should warn anyone attending one of Christopher's tours that you will NOT be losing any weight! The food and the numerous restaurant stops was great, varied and plentiful.

A special shout out to our driver and Christopher's friend, Santiago! Like every Tico we met he had a great and positive attitude and nothing but smiles for us every morning and throughout the trip.
