gwhizz63 is on a distinguished road
Living aboard in Central America is still risky. I do go to Costa Rica every year and my friend owns a condo on the beach there. The Northern part of country still has lots of crime, drugs, and prostitution - so have to be careful. If you plan on leaving the boat for any extended periods, you might want to hire someone to watch it. Also if you do plan to fish in the area - be aware of local fisherman who get very upset about that. They are starting to build a number of new marinas along the coast because of the building boom going on. Some of the larger hotels have docks and marinas but not sure of prices. Good luck !
