A few years ago, a disgruntled ex-cop coming off a divorce desperately needed to give his life a fresh kick-start.

Aside from throwing himself into a new field – marketing – he made a point of learning his new craft from the best…which meant he had to ditch the life he knew in small town Ohio (not exactly a problem) and heading out for Costa Rica.

In today’s interview, “Doberman Dan” Gallapoo gives us the low-down on what to expect with life in Costa Rica.

He takes the time to explain, in two parts, everything you could possibly need to know about life in Costa Rica, whether you’re going there short-term, long-term or permanently.

If you love travel, you’ll love very second of this installment.
