Being Labeled as a "Perpetual Tourist"
The label of "perpetual tourist" is not a status but rather is similar to a condition. Unlike the 4 statuses previously discussed, a perpetual tourist does not have any legal rights here in Costa Rica that are afforded to a "cedula" holder. The perpetual tourist is not guaranteed a automatic 90-day renewal of his tourist status and as a perpetual tourist they can be asked to leave at anytime. They have a great deal of difficulty opening up a bank account, telephone service, cable TV service, etc., and must leave the country every 90 days to keep his home country driver's license valid.
The perpetual tourist can purchase a home, cars, boats, etc. here if they wish.
There are lots of things to discuss. . .
