BBC TV filming in San Jose (San José)
Hi everybody, I'm a TV producer for British TV - we are working with a British family who are planning to emigrate to Costa Rica. Next month, we are filming a research trip with them to look at where they might live, work and make friends. It would be great if any of the community would like to help us either with advice, meeting our family on camera, or recommending local facilities we might need e.g. estate agents. The family are particularly keen to buy a home/smallholding where they could raise animals and grow food, somewhere between Puntarenas and Jaco. Any advice on whether this is a good area for them to aim for, in terms of the lifestyle they want and fitting into a local community, would be much appreciated.
