Assisted living is now available in Costa Rica. Florida became famous for its retirement communities and Costa Rica will be the next. The first REAL retirement community in Costa Rica is Verdeza is under construction and located in Escazu.
This beautiful community will be fully operational on the 11th of November 2013 and the new residents will be able to move that day. I have done several hard hat tours with clients of mine in recent weeks and I took some pictures, so you can see for yourself how well they are moving ahead on the construction. I am pretty sure they will make their opening date as planned.
Verdeza is a fully bilingual continuing care facility and gives you now the option to retire in a tropical environment with the amenities of a modern city. The creators of Verdeza have chosen this location due to the amazing amount of amenities that Escazu has to offer, being almost next door to the first-class private hospital, and being only a 20-minute drive to an International airport so your family can visit you easily and often.

Verdeza offers 61 apartment-style rooms of your own choice, depending on your budget: Standard, Suite, and Deluxe. I have written a blog full of information on this beautiful retirement community before, on another Costa Rica real estate blog.
