This week Corey speaks to the HGTV pilot being shot in Costa Rica on U.S. expats living in Costa Rica.  HGTV has approved a pilot for a potential reality show about expats selling it all in search of the dream of living in Costa Rica. If the pilot special is well received by the American public on HGTV, then the network would purchase an entire season or 26 episodes, which could be a huge deal for real estate and tourism in general. The show will be somewhat like House Hunters International with a twist – a sole focus on Costa Rica and each show would feature two realtors and their set of clients looking to move to Costa Rica on a permanent basis and escape the U.S. (source: Tico Times)

For the second segment, Corey talks with Dan Stevens from the Costa Rican Times about making the move to the west coast of Costa Rica.  In addition, Dan comments on the Liberty Reserve cofounder’s wife suing Costa Rica, Miss Costa Rica, and finding happiness in Costa Rica.

Next up is a great conversation with fellow Canadian expat, Darren Friesen.  Darren owns and operates Civilian Preservation Technologies & Mandirigma Filipino Martial Arts Academy.
