Thought it was interesting that the reason Costa Rican medical care was so high was, in the words of the the website, because Costa Rica disbanded the military in 1980 and devoted its resources to education and health care.

Countries, summarized:

1,2;3,4: Unstable Third World Country
5: The origin of the various funnels (jobs, etc.) towards Third World countries; such are defended religiously by those who benefit from circumventing the First World.
6: Third World Country given up by Carter
7: Third World Country rife with corruption, drug cartels, and a porous North border that nobody will secure (for fear of losing illegal immigrants as a means to circumvent US citizens).

"1,2;3,4: Unstable Third World Country"

..based on what? If you are going to make such a claim, you need more than hot air to support it.

"Third World Country given up by Carter"

Does Jimmy Carter have any credibility anymore? One only has to consider what Carter approves.

At least, provide a credible, relatively unbiased, source to support your claims. Why are your knickers are in a twist about health care tourism? Just wondering? Isn't this a personal decision?

Before you get really excited about this prospect, note they run a huge deficit. And check out their inflation rate. This year is projected to be the best since 2002 at 7% to 9%. Five of the last 6 years have been double digit inflation.

When I visited 5 years ago it was about 300 colons/US Dollar. Now it's about 590 CRC/USD.
