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!
Thank you for taking the time to write up your experience. My finance is ni Costa Rica now. I am very excited too. Sounds like it only took you some 5 months to complete the process. Congratulations! That is awesome!
