Costa Rica Package client reviews

Frequently asked questions

Yes. Many clients only need some of the components of our Concierge Package, but still want the premium-level service that concierge clients receive. We are happy to customize a bundle at a reduced price so that you get exactly what you need, and nothing you don’t. Schedule a no-cost 15 minute consultation call, or reach out to us at [email protected] to receive a customized offer.

Ideally 3-6 months before your move so that we have enough lead time to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. However, our Concierge Package is valuable for clients even a year or more out from a move. In those cases, bi-weekly calls will be used for Discovery and Planning so that you have a partner and guide help you make decisions and understand all of your options. If you are moving sooner than 3 months, you will still find the Concierge Package valuable as so much of the stressful work of the move will be taken off of your plate.

Yes! The period immediately after you arrive in-country is one of the most stressful parts of the relocation process. After we’ve picked you up from the airport, and gotten your phone and utilities set up, we’ll show you around your new town and make recommendations on how to plug into local and expat communities that align with your interests. We will also be on-call for 30 days after your arrival to answer any questions that come up as you settle in.
