Dear Sun-Seeking Friend,
If you are worried about the future of our economy and society, and if you hate cold weather with a passion, then I have some ideas you should seriously consider.
I grew up in what is considered to be one of the “worst” climates of North America: right in the suburbs of Montreal, Canada.
A lot of people think that Toronto is cold.
Well, Montreal is even colder.
The winters last six months of brutal, relentless cold, accompanied by snow and ice storms and grey weather.
Think below zero weather (Fahrenheit), or minus 30 Celsius.
Against all odds, I managed to discover the raw food diet in 1997, and tried to follow a program of tropical fruits and vegetables in the heart of the winter.
During the winter, lettuce was weeks old and wilted. There was not a ripe mango in sight, and the bananas tasted like they had been made out of cardboard boxes.
The cold made it impossible to do any exercise outside.
The grey weather made everyone slightly or severely depressed for months in a row. And of course, these were the people you had to deal with everyday.
Because of artificial heating in the house, my lips and hands were always dried.
My feet and hands were cold.
And even though you could warm your bones by a fire… there was always that nagging feeling of living in a completely artificial environment, and paying the consequences by poorer health.
“Natural Vitamin D from Sunlight Can Save Your Life”
A Recent study published by The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology found that 600,000 cases of cancer could be prevented every year just by increasing your levels of vitamin D. And the best way to get your vitamin D is exposing your skin to natural sunlight (in doses that do not cause sunburn).
I understood the importance of natural vitamin D, and sunlight, and that in spite of everything we've been told on the subject (such as all skin cancer is caused by sunlight), the benefits of sunlight FAR outweigh the risks, when you do it correctly (for more information on this topic, please read The Healing Sun, by Richard Hobday).
Are You Worried About What the
Government Is Going to Do
to Restrict Your Freedom?
In addition to the health aspects of moving to a tropical paradise, I was also concerned about all of the laws that the government started passing for “our benefits”.
And since that time, things are even worst. For example:
- Since September 1st, 2007, all almonds sold in or coming from the USA are now “pasteurized”. In fact, the compound used is propylene oxide, which is actually a highly toxic flammable chemical compound. The plan also includes “organic” almonds. Don’t believe me? Read more about it here, and on the Almonds Board of growers themselves, here.
- Many fruits and vegetables, we commonly eat are now genetically-modified, including papayas and sweet corn, with more to come
- Dehydrated spices are now irradiated, as well as common tropical fruits from Hawaii or Florida (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_irradiation)
- Most mangoes sold are hot-water treated (that’s why they taste so bad)
- Have you heard of the Codex Alimentarus? The government is planning to control the health food industry and restrict the sale of health food products. The actual goal is to outlaw health products and information on vitamins and dietary supplements, except those under their direct control. Read more about this here.
And that’s just the beginning. Who knows what else is coming or what’s in store for us… all in the name of “safety”.
I couldn’t take it anymore. I said “ENOUGH!”.
I was longing for beaches, fruits that I could pick of the tree, and warm, pleasant weather year round, and less-controlling government.
I was daydreaming about sunshine, turquoise waters, palm trees, white sands, and tropical fruits.
In fact I became obsessed about it.
At Home In Warm, Tropical Weather
I needed to come back to Canada because I was running out of avenues to earn a living in California, but I swore to take my revenge one day, and go back to an even better place: a tropical paradise.
I took long trips all over the world to places such as: Brazil, Mexico, Hawaii, French Polynesia, Bali, Spain, Southern France, Panama and Costa Rica.
Every time I landed in one of those countries, I welcomed the warm tropical air, the cooling mountain breezes, the natural perfume of tropical flowers that surround the air… this felt like home!
Even though these countries were not my country, I felt more at home there in a sort of primal sense. It felt like… this is where we’re meant to live!
Every year, it seemed like the amount of time I spent in the tropics was increasing. In 2005, I spent three months in a row in Costa Rica.
The Pura Vida Lifestyle System
In 2006, I spent 6 months and even decided to move there permanently and start a health retreat center there.
This turned out to be a terrible idea, but I also learned a TON in the process. I discovered all of the intricacies of moving to a new country, the mistakes to avoid, the pitfalls to watch out for… and I want to help YOU avoid these mistakes as well.
Now, I manage to spend the entire winter in the tropics, without giving up my life in Canada, and in fact lowering my overall yearly expenses.
I call this system “the Pura Vida Lifestyle System”, based on the saying in Costa Rica “pura vida” which means “pure life”, and that everybody says in many circumstances.
With the Pura Vida Lifestyle System, you get to spend 1 to 12 months a year in a tropical paradise (it doesn’t have to be Costa Rica). So either full-time or part-time, depending on your preferences or your needs or where you’re at in your life right now.
You’re also establishing a HOME in this Paradise of your choice… one that you can go back to and perhaps one day make your full-time home.
You’re doing all of this without increasing your yearly expenses, and even making some extra money in the process, and best of all, keeping your freedom and freeing yourself from unnecessary commitments.
How You Can Increase Your Quality of Life
in the Tropics
I won’t say that any place in the world is perfect. There are always certain adjustments and compromises we must make to create a better situation for ourselves.
But I’ll say something… the grass can be greener somewhere else (especially when it gets lots of sunshine).
Here are some of the benefits of relocating part-time or full-time to a tropical paradise.
It’s about quality of life. Here’s what it means:
Sun and fresh air.
Escape the torture of cold and dark winters, and enjoy lots of natural sunshine, get your dose of real vitamin D. Enjoy wearing minimal clothing, take walks whenever you feel like it, and never pick up a snow shovel again!
There’s a world of difference between a fruit that grows on a tree and is picked hours before you eat it, and a fruit that is picked too early, shipped over long distances and sold to you for more money.
In the tropical paradises I’m talking about, you can eat delicious, cheap, quality, tree-ripened fruits and vegetables, and avoid genetically-engineered foods, irradiation, hot-water treated mangoes and tasteless, imported produce.
You can reduce stress dramatically by relocating at least part of the year somewhere where the pace of living is slower, more relaxed and where people value real friendship and relaxation over the constant desire to work, work, work and consume, consume, consume.
You can find excitement and growth by experiencing a different culture and become enriched by it. You could learn a new language, or stay somewhere where people speak English. But in either case, I have found that in many countries (I’ll tell you which ones), there are no anti-American feelings as most people imagine, and people are friendly, welcoming and very helpful.
People think I’m crazy when I tell them you can save money by relocating at least part of the year overseas in a tropical paradise. It’s true! I’ll show you how it’s possible.
The main benefit to seek from relocating to a tropical paradise is an overall increase in your quality of life.
Every year we work, it seems we end up with less in our pockets. Inflation is eating away our buying power, and taxes take up a big chunk of the rest.
But the culture tells us to keep working, keep working, and keep consuming, keep consuming… for what exactly in the end?
- You could wake up in the morning, hear birds sing outside from your window, go pick your own fruits or buy really inexpensive, totally fresh produce at the local market.
- You could swim in pristine, turquoise waters, feel the breeze and the sun nourish your body, and yet live in close distance to all of the modern conveniences you’re used to.
- You could walk at night in the neighborhood and feel safe, when you relocate to the very low-crime areas I’m about to show you.
- In these places, you can hire a charming local for less than $300 per month to work in your house several hours a day, to prepare all of your healthy meals (yes, they’ll make smoothies and raw dishes if you ask them to) and take care of all your household chores and leave you time to enjoy life.
This is the average salary there for this type of work, that they can use to feed their family instead of not having a job or working doing back-breaking work such as harvesting palm trees for oil.
We’ve grown so accustomed to having NO service anymore that it almost seems wrong to improve our standards of living with the money that we’ve worked so hard to get.
But you can dramatically increase the quality
of your life NOW by planning your move to a
And you can also prepare yourself for the future, when you might have the possibility to spend even more time in your newly found paradise.
I’ve learned a lot in the last 10 years by visiting these different countries, and trying out different things. I know what works and what doesn’t.
Today, you can discover…
I’ve made every mistake in the book (including some costly ones), and I’ve also found amazing resources and deals you won’t hear from anyone else.
I can save you time AND money.
In this new course you will discover:
- Tricks and tips almost no one knows to find cheap airfare (under $500), and how I manage to get two FREE round trips to Costa Rica per year, without using frequent travelers miles.
- Where to go for the best deals for food, rent and modern conveniences, and how to avoid common scams running on Craigslist.
- The top 10 mistakes to avoid when buying real estate abroad, and a clear solution to avoid 99% of the problems people run into when they want to buy a piece of land or a house overseas.
- What to do with your apartment or house when you leave for the tropics. This is my step-by-step method for no-hassle and worry-free traveling. I also include some ingenious tricks to avoid theft when you’re away, without using a house-sitter or sub-leasing your apartment.
- The absolute best locations for a tropical paradise home, where you can avoid bugs, mosquitoes, extreme heat and thieves.
- How to deal with red tape and bureaucracy, and avoid waiting lines when it comes to getting anything done abroad.
- One clothing item to avoid that will automatically label you as “TOURIST” almost anywhere in the world, and make you an easy target for pickpockets.
- How to keep up on the "paperwork" left behind at home, such as house insurance, bill payments without having to hire someone to look after a home left behind for part of the year.
- How to cover yourself with top-quality health insurance worldwide, (PLUS: special tips for Canadians on how to still qualify for the provincial medical while away)
- How to find the best deals for top-quality, modern apartments or condos for rent, in many cases for less than $500 per month (HINT: It’s not Craigslist! This is probably the last place you should look).
- Critical information you need to make sure you’re not paying any extra income tax if you end up working in a new country.
- How to save up to $7000 a year by not owning a car in a tropical paradise, and where to live instead to be in walking distance of everything you need.
- How to take your dogs with you hassle-free and with almost no paperwork and certainly NO quarantine risks.
- Only a few countries in the world require vaccination (and none of the countries I recommend do) — know which ones in order to avoid surprises!
- Must-have information for US, Canadian, Australian or European citizens when it comes to citizenship and residency matters.
- How to work and generate income legally without needing a business visa.
- How to avoid loneliness and isolation in paradise, and what’s the best way to go about making new contacts and meeting people .
- Where to go to get fast, affordable and reliable high-speed Internet access for hassle free communication with your family.
- How to keep receiving your favorite magazines and even place orders online to Amazon.com and other US online vendors, and receive everything safely without using the unreliable post office abroad, or expensive services such as UPS that charge you too much in duty.
- Where to go to save on dentist and health bills: just getting your annual checkup and cleaning at the dentist in Costa Rica or Thailand will save you a ton of money (and these dentists are just as qualified as the ones in the US — in fact, most of them have studied there and speak English and use very modern equipment).
- Why you can save at least $200 per year by getting glasses and other eye prescription done abroad.
Can You Afford To Live In Paradise?
If you’re wondering whether you can afford or not to live in paradise, maybe you’ve been asking the wrong question. Consider this realistic budget for Costa Rica, based on my own experience there:
Basic Budget for Costa Rica: Here’s how you can live lavishly for less than $1000
|Rent, for furnished apartment, including A/C, cable-TV, high-speed Internet, fridge and kitchen, on six month lease
|Cell Phone (this is optional for most people)
|Food (all the delicious fruits and vegetables you care to eat + plus meals out if desired)
|Transportation and Taxis (this includes a LOT driving time, in case you want to travel around or rent a car for a day).
Entertainment: This include splurging on extras such as guided tours in new areas of the country you don’t know, scuba diving, going to the movies, etc.)
(Not including going to snorkel, exploring waterfalls, etc.)
|Household help twice a week (two to three hours at a time)
|Extras (this includes anything you might need for the house)
Remember: you can live for cheaper! If you share the cost with someone, many of these expenses will cut in half. If you relocate to a cheaper country like Ecuador or Thailand, you could definitely live on less.
If you own your home in the tropics, you’ll also save on that monthly expense.
You can also adjust your budget to include other extras as you see fit in your lifestyle.
But the real savings are to be found on the money you’ll no longer be spending at home, while you’re away. This can include a TON of money from unexpected sources!
I personally save over $1075 per month by spending about half the year in a tropical paradise. My savings come from sources such as:
- Lower food costs ($200+ per month)
- Lower transportation costs, including decreased car depreciation ($300+ per month)
- Eliminating heating bills back home ($75+ per month during the winter)
- Lower entertainment and “fun” costs ($350+ per month)
You will be surprised to see how much your expenses go down once you move away from the consumerism culture of Western world for a while. Even though some of these savings might not apply to you, there are still plenty more ways to generate income when you’re away.
In the course “How to Move to a Tropical Paradise”, I will show you:
- How you could I afford to live in a tropical paradise and earn extra money at the same time
- How to make enough money to pay bills while there
- What expenses you can eliminate while you’re away from home (I personally save hundreds of dollars per month by doing this).
- Other creative solutions to live in a tropical paradise practically free through house-sitting, and where to find those deals online
So the real question now is… how can you afford NOT to move to a tropical paradise?
Will You Let These Things Hold You Back?
Here are the 4 biggest objections, besides money, that people have about moving to a tropical paradise. Will you let them hold you back?
1. I can’t afford it. I’ve already shown you that you can live a better life… for less than you’re currently spending by moving at least part time to a tropical paradise. And I haven’t even touched on the possibilities for generating income from there. So is it really about money?
2. I’m afraid. Fear of the unknown is normal and healthy… as long as you don’t let that hold you back from living your dreams. Consider these issues:
- Safety: most countries have a much lower crime rate than the US. It’s just a matter of finding the right areas, and avoiding the bad ones.
- Mosquitoes. There are almost no mosquitoes where I live. If you don’t like them, you just need to locate in a mosquito-free area!
- Doing it alone: Many countries like Costa Rica can be very safe, even for a single woman. You’ll find plenty of expats and friends here to connect with.
- Bureaucracy and red tape: There’s very little paperwork to do to get started, and you don’t need complicated visa or residency applications. I have all of my best contacts ready for you to facilitate your move.
- Local feelings about foreigners. It’s a misconception to think that the world “hates the USA”. For example, Costa Ricans are very welcoming and friendly to foreigners. Same for many other countries I have visited.
3. I have too many commitments at home. I’m not saying you need to make a complete move to the tropics right now and forget about your other commitment. This is a long-term process, and it can start with just a visit to a new country where you hope one day to establish a new residence. But if you don’t start now, 5 or 10 years from now you may wake up and realize you have missed the boat.
4. I don’t speak the language. I know many expats who have lived in a new country for years and still don’t master the local language. Learning just a little will help you a long way, and that’s why I’m providing a special report containing the top 100 words and phrases you must learn. You can also make sure you relocate in an area with plenty of English speakers, or a country that speaks English like Belize.
Why This Course Is Unlike Anything
You've Seen Before?
There are plenty of courses that can teach you about areas to relocate overseas, but none of them were written from the perspective of a raw-food and health enthusiast like me.
I will not only tell you which countries are the best, but I’ll tell you exactly where to go in those countries to find the best organic and raw foods… which is information you won’t find anywhere else.
Plus, most relocation programs focus on a big move for people considering retiring overseas. But I know that most people are not ready for this. So that’s why my course teaches you how to make either a part-time move (like I do), or a full time move (like I have done).
Even if you don’t have the budget to buy a big piece of property… you can still make the dream happen for much less than you think by using my proven system for finding affordable rent and high-speed Internet access.

Why You Won't Need to Spend as Much as I Did
Not so long ago, I attended a seminar on living and investing in Panama. I paid $1200 for a week-long seminar, plus about $1000 in accommodations and $300 for the plane ticket (from Costa Rica).
So my total cost for this seminar was $2600 (not counting extra activities we had to pay for).
And you know what? Although I learned some great information at this seminar, most of the speeches were just sales pitches intended to sell a bigger-ticket item for the speakers.
And the entire seminar focused entirely on Panama.
With this course, you will get a clear overview of a number of different countries, along with my unique perspective on what it takes to make a move to a tropical paradise, and how to prepare for it… and that from the comfort of your home, without sales pitches and only featuring my best information.
