Living in Paradise?

November 25, 2014  •  15 Comments

The most frequent question that I get since I retired to Costa Rica is "so what's it like living in Paradise?". I was always hesitant  to answer the question because by agreeing to answer implied that I agreed with them in that Costa Rica is really "paradise".  That should really be 2 separate questions. "What's it like living in Costa Rica" and "Is Costa Rica really "paradise?".

I was reluctant to answer at first. "Let's give it more time" I would say. After living here for almost 2 years I feel that I am now qualified to answer the "paradise" question. 

First, let's discuss what are the popular & general ideas of "paradise".                                                                                                                           

No wars. Plenty of sunshine, but not too much that it can lead to drought. Lots of colorful birds and interesting wildlife. Toucans & sloths! Lush vegetation and lots of tropical plants and flowers. Warm climate where one can wear flip-flops every day, go for a swim, or have an outdoor BBQ any time of the year. Have the tranquility of the ocean & a beautiful deserted beach. Breath pure rainforest air-no pollution. Lots of waterfalls.  Plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables all year long. Lots of peace & happiness! And living stress free. So far, so good!

However, it's also true that there is petty crime such as theft, or you can get a spider or snake bite and die. You can drive your car off the side of one of the many mountain roads that make up Costa Rica. It's not as inexpensive to live here as it once was-yes I'm talking about you Electricity & Gasoline.  There are real estate scams.  People die in car and motorcycle accidents. These things shouldn't happen in "Paradise".

Is Costa Rica "paradise"? After taking it all in and experiencing life here I can confidently say that it's as close to "paradise" as one can get.

So now, when people ask me "Hey Paul, so what's it like living in Paradise?" I can actually tell them it's pretty darn good!

My husband and I have been separated a year and two months. I want to reconcile but he doesn’t seem to want it. He doesn’t answer my text, emails, or phone calls. I don’t know if I should go up there and try to talk to him again or just give him what he wants: divorce. Like I said I don’t want that and I’ve prayed and tried to reconcile but nothing from him just silence. Since I left he has been arrested, doing drugs and looking at porn. There was also evidence that he might be doing more. I found condoms, blood on his sheets, and found what looks like sex toys! I have also seen on his bank statement that he spent money at a sex store. What do I do??? Some people tell me to get rid of him and others tell me to pray for a miracle but how long do i wait for him to tell me. It takes two to do the tango and he won’t even come to the dance floor. I almost started thinking i made the mistake of marrying someone i was unequally yoked to but i don’t want to make another mistake either, so I have been very hopeful until i was introduced to Dr Ozigidon a powerful spell caster who end all these problems within 72 hours. Thank to Dr Ozigidon, contact him for any help you want in life via email ([email protected]) whatsapp +2349054750112. Thanks once again Dr Ozigidon.

Greetings to you all. I have come on the Internet publicly today to tell the world the secret behind my happiness. It was two years ago I lost a beautiful relationship with my husband and ever since then I have been trying all possible best to get him back but it hasn't worked out for me. But today it's a different story after I got a contact from the Internet about this wonderful Lord Erhun on 30th May Last year so without any time wasted I contacted him on his email: [email protected] and he got back to me on 1st June. I finally told him all my problems and he said to me, i will help you. I was happy because I have read testimonies about people he has helped without complications. 

Just in 48hrs my husband called me sounding so loving and romantic on the phone and told me he is coming home to me and he wants us to take our marriage vows again to prove how sorry he was.. Lord Erhun helped me to bring my husband back to me and also helped me with fertility spells, so today i am a mother. Since last year I was shy to come out publicly but after giving birth a few weeks ago i chose to let the world know about a great man called Lord Erhun.
[email protected] I was lucky to meet him. He is friendly and helpful. He has been helping me since I contacted him and he has done a lot in my life. Contact him. With his powerful spell you shall find peace.
