1. Yay! Where are you going to live?

I was going to say have a margarita for us, but probably there's another national drink.

2. The alcoholic beverage here is Cacique...

Moonshine made from sugar cane.

We live in a beautiful spot on Lake Arenal.

Thanks for asking.

8. Yes the pic is of the Arenal Volcano that we can see

But she is shy and is often cloud covered.
This volcano is about 26 miles on the north end. We live on south end. But can see her.

However we live at the base of the Tonorio Volcano Natíl Park. We canít see that one unless we are on a different mountain.

26. It's different in different parts.

Coasts are hot and brittlely dry.
We live on the Continental Divide.
One our side of the mountain itís generally 73-about 86. This moment itís 76.
No one has AC here because itís breezy.
We do live in a rainforest so it rains here everyday. Usually it has sunny and rainy times. Over the other side of the mountain only 16 miles away, in Canas itís always 12-20 degrees hotter. By Liberia and the Pacific Coast itís been 108.

We love living in a rain forest. Always green and verdant. Itís a bit different for tourists, here in Arenal your vacation could be very rainy.

Lots of Eco-tourism where we are.

14. Can someone survive being able to speak only English? Or...

... are the locals hostile to anyone who doesn't speak Spanish?

22. No just residency. Not citizenship.

We wonít vote. But we donít have to do visa runs to the border every three months.
We can now get CR drivers license and universal health care including dentistry.
Itís all sooo good.
