The government got smart a few years ago. The adopted a progressive element to property taxes, so there is a higher rate of property taxes on homes and condos that cost more than $250,000.
I think that makes sense and is fair, even though we have to pay the higher tax on both of our condos. The extra revenue is collected from a lot of foreigners, as Costa Rica is very popular with Canadians and Americans for vacation and retirement homes.
This week we have more photos of Julie's raft trip through the Grand Canyon on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
