Relax You Are In Paradise – Part 6

Costa Rica project development and construction team Corbin and Tatiana Vandruff came to Playa Panama, Costa Rica via the United States in 1994 in search of a better quality of life for themselves and their 2 small boys.

Check out this video where they tell of their personal story of how they met and what made them decide to drop their successful businesses in the US to start a whole new chapter in Costa Rica and why they love Costa Rica and especially Guanacaste.

Leaving well established Architectural and Construction businesses behind in California they decided to use their project development and construction know how to purchase a large parcel of untouched ocean view property that would become what we know now as Vistas del Pacifico.

Playa Hermosa School Back Pack Program

The Playa Hermosa School is growing and improving with the help of many local volunteers, the Playa Hermosa Resident’s Association as well as many people who don’t live here full time but hope to in the future.

Playa Hermosa School Project

Make sure you check out the facebook page of the Playa Hermosa School renovation project that talks about all the successful projects done to date including building a new kindergarten classroom.

Playa Hermosa School

The school now has 52 kids and growing which is a significant increase over years past as the school is looking great!

Unfortunately the kids who attend the school, for the most part, come from humble families.  So every year there is a big effort to purchase Back Packs filled with School supplies for the kids and the school. This is a huge incentive for kids to actually come to school and once they come they see how nice the school has become and how welcoming the teachers are.  So your donation is and will continue to pay off for future generations.

Playa Hermosa School Back Pack

As in years past Gary Lindquist and the Playa Hermosa Resident’s Association are spearheading the effort.

The cost for each bag is $65 and the goal is to buy one for each of the 52 students.

If you would like to contribute please contact me directly.

Playa Hermosa School Kids

Thank you for your generous support.
