In order to create an accurate guidebook of this scope and magnitude it was necessary to select writers with experience in the fields of economics, real estate, newspaper reporting, and photojournalism. Many candidates were interviewed but the two below proved by far to be the most qualified for this three year project. Lindsay Whipp Lidsay whipp is British and has been living overseas since she left university in the UK. After completing her masters in Tokyo in gender and development studies she worked for Bloomberg in Tokyo for five years writing about the auto industry and then the economy. In 2006 she moved to Costa Rica and worked briefly as a freelance journalist before teaming up with Christopher Howard and Zona Tropical to research, write and take photographs for this book. She has since moved back to Tokyo where she is a correspondent for the Financial Times. Peter Krupa Peter Krupa is a professional journalist who is fluent in Spanish and has spent four years living and working in Costa Rica. In his time covering real estate for local English weekly the Tico Times, he heard it all, and wrote on everything from title insurance, to beach front scams, to new developments attractive to retirees. Peter has traveled extensively in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and in addition to writing about real estate he himself has gone through the process of purchasing a home in Costa Rica. Along with his work on this book, Peter covers the Panamanian economy for the Economist Intelligence Unit, and and has worked as the Costa Rica editor for Central America Today.Review:
If you have any questions about buying, renting or building property in Costa Rica, Christopher Howard's Guide to Real Estate in Costa Rica will help. All sixteen chapters of the book are useful. The detailed advice seems to derive from the point of view of the experts. It is evident Howard, Krupp and Whipp have observed and experienced the process of property ownership in Costa Rica, and that the book was crafted to pass along their wisdom. --Adam Williams, Tico Times Real Estate Supplement Feb 26, 2010
The most comprehensive guide to buying real estate in Costa Rica and, indeed, in any Latin American country. --Peronet Depeignes, former economic correspondent, Fortune Magazine
Mr. Howard could be the Buddha of Costa Rica real estate. You don t have to be enlightened to see how much work and wisdom have gone into this book. --- Perry Garfinkel, longtime New York Times contributor
