Costa Rica/Work / play in CR



I am a physician with interest in work / play in CR. My colleague introduced me to CR and he himself has built a house in Dominical. We are interested in working a bit in CR in semi retirement. I am looking to do an immersion Spanish course with cooking possibly to improve my broken Spanish.

Do you have any info on the Licencing process and any health care specific language courses for 1-4 weeks. I will be in Arenal / Monteverde in Feb 2014 and would like to be able to research this plan a bit.

You must apply for residency and  for licensing,
You will need a birth certificate and criminal background letter, related diplomas snd certificates, medical school records.
The rest of the documents are handled by an Attorney .
Spanish courses are fairly.common all over the main cities and towns.
The process is a bit slow so it is a good idea to start the process with plenty of time.
You can contact me by email if you would like to begin right away.
