Thanks for the tip. Now all I have to do is to get to Grenada without transiting in Miami. I guess there must be direct flights from Kingston, and I will look into the matter. Thanks again.

Caribbean airlines flies caymen to pos then london, but i just checked on skyscanner, your flight costs are disgustingly high. If it helps, norwegian air flys oslo to st croix bvi on fridays for about 400-500 pounds... Im sure theres a way to get there?

Looks like the standard price going forward is 600, not bad still.

Hi everyone, we are making our first trip to Costa in August with a view to making the move permanent in the near future. Any British expats that could lend a hand or advice to a couple of (soon to be retired) British soldiers would be most welcome!

Which Country is Safer: Nicaragua, Costa Rica, or Panama? - Costa Rica Star News
To be honest I would take that article with a massive pinch of salt. Costa Rica Star News / News.co.cr or whatever they want to call themselves are comically unreliable at times using downright laughable sources. Seems their new thing is to just pretend the article was a "test" of their readership if anyone calls them out on it.

Hi

We are a British family in CR. 3 years here and love it.

I would recommend the Facebook Group 'families with children in central valley, costa rica' as a great starting point.
