If slow paced, family-centered life, in what is considered by many as the “perfect climate,” appeals to you, then you might want to consider San Ramon, Costa Rica. “Pura Vida” or the Pure Life is a motto used by the people to signify their desire to live a tranquil, peaceful life surrounded by family and friends.
