About COSTA RICA THEN/COSTA RICA NOW: A Gringo Moves To

FROM PURA VIDA TO THE ROACH MOTEL IN 11 SHORT YEARS. CR CAPTIVE IS QUITE LITERALLY A CAPTIVE IN COSTA RICA. SKIP THE PROPOGANDA & TOURIST TRAPS.

I was robbed first by the police, then by the Mob, & finally by a judge. NO CHARGES/NO CRIME/NO COURT/ RIGHTS/NP PHONE CALL/NO TOILET/NO WATER/NO FOOD! Just: "Give us $9000 in cash, or you will never see daylight again." At the beginning of Cost Rica Now, crooks were the reason no one walked the beach at night. In the daytime, you cannot take your eyes off of your stuff---or even lock it in your car. But now police ARE the thieves, & act with impunity. In other Central American countries, highway robbers are the main concern. In Costa Rica, the highway robbers wear uniforms & are paid by the government. Somalian pirates kidna
