  • Our Story
    We met in Tamarindo June of 2008 while I was on vacation. We kept in touch while I was back in the USA and 6 months later I returned to Tamarindo again and this time I stayed a month, at which time we decided that I would just going to stay in Costa Rica and extend my airline ticket out. We traveled around and lived in Quepos for a while before returning and settling down in Tamarindo. Our son was born in October 2009 and we applied for a tourist visa a couple of months later, to which we were denied due to what the embassy called a lack of ties to his country. In April of 2011 I moved back to the states so that I could begin working and be able to sponsor Ruben and we could be a family once again! He finally arrived in October 2012 and life is good!

  1. Hi-- good luck! It took us about 2 weeks or so to get the passport with visa in it from the SJ consulate. I think it normally takes a week, but we got a call saying the printer broke down so they rescheduled our pickup date to the next Wednesday. Normally, I believe the consulate is open on Thursday afternoons for people picking up these visas (or at least it is only one day a week).
