I was just charged $47 on my credit card for a renewal to something from International Living. I did not authorize a charge or request anything from IL. I have no idea why I'm being charged as there's no email or post mail stating that I'd be charged. I'm not able to log in to the site as my user name does not exist any longer. Customer service requires you enter your personal information.... Read more

After reading how "affordable" Jaco Costa Rica was I flew down on an exploratory. NOT SO... save your money n The states with all of it's shortcomings is light years ahead! . Click your heels together and say there's no place like home. . If it were so nice there then why are so many of their citizens emigrating to the US? Read more

Painting Costa Rica as a retirement paradise is pure bunk! Prices here are higher than in the United States. Have your teeth cleaned for $15! What a fairy tale! Most dentists here ask $100! That is just an example. Medicines here are expensive and your book of discounts is a farce! Vitamins and other food supplements are twice the price and half as good. GNC almost has a monopoly here and... Read more

Wow, so many many fanciful articles about Eutopian places all landing in my Inbox. And how frustrating I just can't seem to read the end of the articles without paying. Umm... yeah, pull my other leg it's got bells on. To give you an idea: "Editor's note: Take a shortcut to your perfect life...and save tens of thousands of dollars a year in the process. We explain more about that shortcut here."... Read more

Made several attempts to log in on what appears to be the home page (Not the first time this has happened!) Then went to what is supposed to be customer service site (with non-relevant selections) and found a log-in spot on the page, which does not work! Noticed someone else complained about this too. If this is a tech issue, they've been in business long enough to have corrected this by now. ... Read more

International Living is big business- marketing and real estate. They promote Cuenca as the number one retirement city in the world. There are a great many naive expats, who are not very educated and certainly not well traveled living in this city. It is much more expensive than the promotions dictate and much colder. It is also in a developing country, so DO NOT expect the perks and luxuries you... Read more

Ordered a one year subscription to their magazine for $17.00. Four months later hit with a $49.00 charge to my credit card. I was told that my one year subscription actually expires in six months and that there is an automatic renewal at the higher rate one month before the six month expiration. (Still doesn't explain why they hit me TWO months before) So the $17.00 was a total come on. Bait... Read more
