I have finally left the comforts of Taiwan after four years. Welcome to fellow members in Costa Rica. I currently live outside of Jaco Beach.

I plan to save $12,000 a year while I live in Costa Rica. Why would I spend more money than I earn?

Great, that's not a typical ESL salary in Latin America. Or have you moved on from ESL?

Teach Asian students online and you can earn around $25,000 a year while living in Central America.

Not typical for teachers with little training or experience, but I know plenty of teachers who save $10,000 a year. I usually manage to save $5000 or $6000 dollars, while travelling to the US twice a year, inside of Mexico several times a year, and one other vacation trip as well.

Sweet gig...you're making the most of it!

Will the time zone difference not be an issue?

Making that kind of money, waking up in the middle of the night to teach may not seem like a serious problem.

Actually that is not my job. It was just a suggestion. I do copywriting for company websites.
