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 :-)

I am Canadian from Quebec, accustomed to a medical system with poor service. In Quebec, it is not uncommon to wait 2-3 years on a waiting list for an appointment or surgery, even if it’s something serious.  It’s never important enough to have a quick appointment unless you are just about to die. I am used to never getting a full diagnostic...

Costa Rica has both public and private healthcare sectors. Every town...

Food, glorious food. You might be thinking. What does food have to do with real estate? Well my friends, yes, it gives us basic sustenance. The older we get, the more we appreciate having variety and options in our choices of what we eat. On a hot day, it helps to know that the area that you have chosen to buy has places where you can purchase...
