From what I hear CR gets a bit too much PR, not to say that it isn't a good country to retire to, but there are other candidates as well.
So don't try to concentrate too much on Costa Rica. From what I hear, Nicaragua should be just as interesting (not to mention Ecuador) and a lot cheaper.

First, "patience" means patience in learning about a new place. Too many people from the USA come down here, fall in love with the place and want to buy a home and start investing right away. What's the rush? You want to see the warts too. There are warts everywhere.

I would say Nicaragua and Ecuador are not stable enough for most US retirees. Both places are very anti-Gringo. Mexico is a better choice than both right now. Honduras is a consideration if one is looking for cheap. Cuba is another consideration but in the future.
