              When is the best time to start planning my Scouting Trip?

              Whenever you are ready! It does help to give us advanced time notice, but we’ve planned trips in less than one week. Giving a few months advance notice to plan the trip is perfect. 


              What if I still have some questions before purchasing this program?

              You are ALWAYS welcome to book a call with me directly!

              What happens after I sign up?

              • 🔸 Receive emails giving you access to our online program where you will fill out your Scouting Trip Questionnaire
              • 🔸 I will personally reach out to schedule a date/time that works best for you for our Scouting Trip Planning Session
              • 🔸 After our call you receive a thorough summary email and we begin working on all of the pending tasks and logistics for your trip and deliver within 1-2 weeks
              • 🔸 If you ever have anything more to add or subtract from your trip we will make any adjustments and conduct any further research required
              What happens during the Scouting Trip Planning Session?

              The call with me is typically structured like this (but remember, this is 1:1 and completely customized to you to fit your individual needs):

              • 🔸 I ask you to tell me as much as you can about yourself (family) so I can get to know you, your goals, priorities and how you really picture your life moving to Costa Rica
              • 🔸 We pull out the map and I ask you further questions to help narrow down on potential areas that are a good fit for you based on what you tell me
              • 🔸 Example of questions I will ask: (Ideal distance to international airport, ideal climate, ideal distance to major medical and amenities, type of community you’re looking for, your hobbies, your overall budget for living in Costa Rica, etc…)
              • 🔸 We explore the map and go more into depth about the towns we are choosing to further determine if they are a potential fit for what you’re looking for.
              • 🔸 I inquire about what you would be looking for in a long-term home rental or real estate purchase in the future to make sure the areas we are choosing are also a good fit and provide examples of what you can expect in terms of availability and pricing.
              • 🔸 We make a list of things that you’ll do and see in each area to get a more local understanding of the area.
              • 🔸 I look at your ideal time that you’ll have in Costa Rica and we determine how many days are appropriate for you to spend in each area in order to reach your goals and see/do the things you need to make decisions. 
              • 🔸 We write out a day-to-day structured itinerary of what that will look like with travel times between each destination to make sure the trip looks even and not rushed.
              • 🔸 We go over any additional logistics such as car rentals, transport, accommodation recommendations, traveler’s insurance, etc…
              • 🔸 We have a nice LONG list of pending tasks and a beautiful summarized email that is sent to you after the session. 
              • 🔸 We deliver your pending tasks within 1-2 weeks of our session
              Do you cover the entire country?

              YES! We cover every area of Costa Rica from the inner city to the most rural areas you can find.

              Do I need to have my tickets booked before booking this program?

              No, and it’s actually better that you do not book tickets until we have our session if possible. This way we can plan out the exact amount of days during our session and you can check in with us prior to booking to make sure the dates look right. 

              If you have booked tickets – no worries. We will work within the timeline you’ve booked for your trip.

              What if I have additional questions after our session?

              The Scouting Trip Session is not the start and end of our communication together. For any additional questions and as we deliver research we are reachable via email, WhatsApp, or any additional calls to make sure everything is perfect for your trip.

              Can I see Real Estate during this trip?

              Yes! And that is a common thing many of our past clients have done on their trips. If you would like to see real estate and potential rentals, we will connect you with one of our reputable contacts in your areas of choice. 

              Are you able to set up appointments with schools?

              YES! Schools are notoriously difficult to get in touch with, especially via email. We can get in contact with them and set up appointments for you and we send all of your appointments in an organized email for you to have for your trip.

              What happens if my timeline changes?

              In this case, we will just adjust your itinerary to fit your new dates.

              It happens more than you might think and we are used to this.
