$500 buy in, is that a $5-10 plo game?
Yes, PLO.(Ive heard it some times goes higher)
I know some private games run with $2k+ buy ins but those are some private games, with Humberto Brenes and his brothers and such, so you would need to be in the scene to get invited.

i dont speak but i can read a little bit, otherwise i was looking at esterios ?

Is this a good spot for a guy that travel alone ? lots of things to do ?

Heard waves are bigger and prices are better

about jaco, do you think i should just go there a visit places to get a better price ?

Btw im a cash game player from canada coming to costa rica for 1 month if people wants to meet up

Re: Ask a Tico anything about Costa Rica!

You can grind online anywhere in Costa Rica. Playa samara - the town- has a higher crime problem than other areas. Not a big bad one...just a lot of stoner/loser type 20-35 year old dudes riding bikes around town looking for crimes of opportunity....and if you are a gringo....you Are a crime of opportunity!!!!

I would pick another place/beach to live.
But you can grind anywhere and check out these places for yourself. CR is not that big! I would avoid Caribbean side too.

San Jose and Jaco beach have only live poker games. There are no othe towns with live games I know of.

There are plenty of airbnb or vrbo for cheap. Lots. Just use the search function on google...

The beaches are really hot most of the year and San Jose's is at 3800 feet - cool. Many expats prefer a higher elevation overlooking San Jose...it's much cooler.

TicoTimes
And
Www.costaricaticas.com

Are two websites with tons of info on Costa Rica.

Many who like to surf stay at playa Hermosa south of Jaco 20 minutes. Great waves. Plus you are only 2 hours from SJO. Jaco is not wonderful fun beach town. It is the only beach town in Costa Rica where hundreds of chicas from all over central America come to screw rich gringos. Again, lots of seedy people around looking for crimes of opportunity. I would never take my family to Jaco.
During the day it's fine.

The Marriott Life s Suenos is a resort 12 more notes from Jaco and it's where rich Costa Rican's come for weekend.
Manual Antonia is an hour down the road and a fabulous tourist beach town. Awesome hotels when the infinity views.

There are hostels and rooms for as low as $20 a night for gringos in Jaco.

Again, take a week and check out a few different areas and see which is best for your long stay.

Good Luck.

Re: Ask a Tico anything about Costa Rica!

Hey,
I move to costa rica (samara or dominical) in january/february 2018!
I will move with 3 other grinders, me and one of the other guys bribg our gfs too!
We all play mid/highstakes mtts online.
My questions:
1.) How much does a house with 4 bedrooms roughly cost per month? (Assuming that we will only try to get houses from ticos and dont want overpriced gringo ****s)
2.) How do things change when we expect the house to have a garden/pool and a biggish livingroom and kitchen where we could spent freetime all together?
3.) My gf is a nurse back at where we live right now, is there any chance foreigners(perpetual tourists) can work as nurses? Like in private clinics or something? I read that work without permanent residency is not allowed for anyone but cant really believe it...

Thanks bro

Hey man,
That sounds fun!
1-2: Waaay too many variables, but I can look around for some houses if you want.
3-Mmm...Not so easy tbh, maybe one you are down here and get to know someone in the medical area and do some "consulting", but it could really back fire if you are thinking about a 9-5 sort of stuff.

Let me know.
