Hi everyone, I'm going to be moving to Costa Rico from Australia for work in the next few weeks.

Firstly I'd like to know if it is possible to get cheep rental accommodation there $300-$500 per month. My other option of course would be to seek share accommodation.

Where would be the best place to do this and secondly are there any interested takers on these forums?

Hi Joe,

Yes, it is pretty easy to find an appartment in San Jose for $350-$500 a month. Most other places, save Monteverde and a few coastal resorts are even cheaper. There is an English language weekly with ads, but it is not on line. However, on yahoo-groups you can find a CR discussion forum, very active, where you'll find all sorts of info and can ask all sorts of questions. Everybody else does;)
BTW, I have described my own acommodations in CR in a response to volunteering in CR on this forum, so check it out, if you like.
