Costa Rica client reviews
We would highly recommend using StartAbroad for your relocation needs… [Their relocation] program is very comprehensive and they anticipated our every needs to make sure that our move went smoothly.
We would have made many mistakes on our own… [StartAbroad was] worth every penny and now looking back we can’t imagine having made this move without their assistance.

It was an ultimate pleasure working with StartAboard, from start to finish they took care of every minor detail. Their service took loads of pressure off my hands as you can imagine all the small details and variables you have to consider when moving to a different country.
I would highly recommend StartAboard if you are looking to relocate.

Moving from Toronto to Costa Rica [was] challenging but ultimately very much worth it so far. One of the obstacles was how to bring our large dog Ruby, down to CR. I was referred to StartAbroad …Many options were outrageously expensive so we decided to let the pros figure out a way that was affordable.
[StartAbroad] was able to get Ruby down at a fraction of the cost with constant follow ups and updates. We highly recommend StartAbroad for all your pet transport needs.
