SAN JOSE, Costa Rica, April 20 The Costa Rican government will formally present and co-host on April 26 to 28 in San Jose, the First Latin America Global Medicine & Wellness expo. Costa Rica has established a department called Costa Rica Association of Retirement Communities, "PRORETIRE," to attract the tens of thousands of Canadians and Americans looking to retire to other countries trying to regain an easier lifestyle they enjoyed in their youth.

Jorge Woodbridge, Minister of Competitiveness for the Costa Rica, says, "For every 10,000 retirees living and enjoying the Costa Rica lifestyle, we expect to generate about 40,000 more working 'Ticos' who will benefit by helping our new friends enjoy Pura Vida."

The goal of PRORETIRE is to make retiring in Costa Rica simple, slashing red tape by providing a one-stop residence permit process so retirees can live in Costa Rica and enjoy Pure Life. This means creating tax exemptions for retirees' property such as real estate to vehicles.

"We are overjoyed to be a part of PRORETIRE and Jorge Woodbridge's initiative to promote retirement in Costa Rica as a wonderful alternative for North Americans. It is truly paradise and every year it becomes easier, convenient and attractive to retire and enjoy the pure life - 'Pura Vida.'
