We are not 100% sure yet but most probably we will be moving to Costa Rica within a few months and would like to have some help as far as shipping our goods. shipping to Costa Rica . We get some shipping rates from USG, ICR and few others but does it even worth to bring the whole things?Is it better to buy the items locally or go through the whole shipping and customs clearance process?
Hi Everyone, I am looking for information on importing a vehicle to Costa Rica from the US. I found the information provided on this site, but my question relates to a new law that is possibly in the process of being passed. Supposedly, CR is implementing a new law that would restrict the importation of vehicles older than 10 years, and because of that, shipping companies now won't ship vehicles older than 10 years. BUT, we talked to a guy in customs who said we could still do it if we do it soon. He says the law has not been passed yet, but it will be soon. Others say it has been passed, but has not yet taken effect. So, there seems to be some confusion about this law.Does anyone know about this law? Has it actually been passed yet? If so, when will it go into effect? Has it already gone into effect? It seems like that would be useful information that would likely be on this site if it had, but....??? Any information or help would be greatly appreciate. I am trying to avoid paying a bunch of money only to find out that I will not be able to bring the truck in - it was a truck of my aunt and uncle's, both of whom died in the past few years. They bought it new in 2000, but they were both elderly and never drived it much before each died. It only has 32,000 miles on it. It's a great truck that would be nice to have here, and for all intensive purposes, it is brand new. So, I appreciate any info that anyone has. Thanks so much!Best, Cathy
I'd love to know how this was thought of - the format for the dates for retirement!!!

The new AngloINFO Jobs section offers many more features to help you actively find or advertise jobs. Over the next few weeks we’ll phase out jobs from the Classifieds altogether, so we’ve switched off the option to add new ones. We hope that you’ll advertise your job via AngloINFO Jobs so that you can see the results for yourself. I have paid for a Featured Classified in one of the jobs categories. What will happen to my ad? If you have a live Featured Classified in one of the jobs categories, it will still show in whichever category you paid for it to appear in. If your ad is still live when we switch off the jobs classifieds, we’ll migrate you over to the new AngloINFO Jobs section – but don’t worry, we’ll email you in advance to let you know what will happen. If you’d rather move your job ad to the new AngloINFO Jobs section now, just contact us and we’ll be happy to help. What will happen to existing basic job Classifieds? We hope that people with basic job Classifieds will decide to advertise their properties in the new AngloINFO Jobs section so that they can take advantage of the powerful new features. Eventually, existing basic ads will disappear when we switch off the jobs sections of the Classifieds but we’ll email everyone in advance to let them know what to expect.
Are you as concerned as I am about the plastic rubbish, including the ubiquitous plastic water bottles, that we see everywhere? If so, join the global campaign to do something about it! If everybody does a little, a lot will be achieved. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/656/074/365/pledge-to-clean-up-some-plastic-rubbish-every-day/ Thank you.
