There are several good reasons why people are attracted to living in Costa Rica, especially after taking a holiday. They all add up to lifestyle and a long life expectancy. Lifestyle includes good health care, education and plenty of terrific hot springs. It is said that a Costa Rican man at age 60 has about twice the chance of reaching age 90 as does a man living in the United States, France, or even Japan. Blue River Resort & Hot Springs is located along the Nicoya Peninsula, one the world’s five Blue Zones where people live measurably longer lives. Then again, many people enhance their health by seeking out medical treatments. And finally, there are those health giving mineral waters, both the type we drink from and the natural mineral hot springs for soaking in.
