OUR BLOGS

We like to blog about Costa Rica!

We are more than a real estate team. We feel as a big family and we always like to meet to share our ideas and perceptions about life, about Costa Rica, our activities, our daily life, our kids, our job, our clients, etc. We like to talk about simple things as which restaurants are betters, the last road who has been paved in town, who won the surf contest and where to get the special organic oil for a insect bite! We are from all around the globe and we all moved abroad for a better life. Some of us are Canadians, some are Americans, some are native Costa Ricans, some are Europeans. We are also a mix of Catholics, Christians, Jehovah's witnesses, Buddhists and deists! We are a colorful team, happy to be living the dream life in Costa Rica! We all chose Guanacaste to live our lives with our families.

By reading our blogs, you will feel different perceptions, different cultures, different religions within the same office. But all of us share one thing: we love our lives and we are very happy to work together and live the Pura Vida life!

Enjoy your reading :-)

Choose YOUR Community well A community is where you do life. It is made up of the people and places that you are around most of the time. It is where you shop, play, eat, socialize, meditate, go to church, walk, volunteer, adventure and relax. Your move to Costa Rica is so much more than just the home or condo you will live in. It is a lifestyle...

When people move to Costa Rica, and mostly in the Tamarindo area, many ask us if there is a place to practice their favorite sport such as a gym, yoga or to practice their combat sport. Many people think that because they are in the tropics, the only sports available are surfing and trekking under the coconut trees. Some like this kind of training...
