Liberia Airport Expanding

Liberia Airport Expanding in response to overwhelming increase in passenger arrivals

Liberia Airport Expanding

Liberia Airport expanding much quicker than expected.  We have been telling people for years that the Papagayo region is primed for another big push.  As is normal the wave of tourists comes first and the real estate investment follows.  The number of passenger arrivals into the Liberia Airport have increased dramatically over last year to more than 30.5% more than this time last year as reported in the Costa Rica Star.

In response to this increase the airport terminal is set for another expansion to the tune of $10 million that will begin this year.  Here is the link to the Tico Times article about the expansion.

Don’t wait until there is a buying frenzy again!

COME ON DOWN BABY!

 

The History of Playas del Coco

Tank Tops Flip Flops Newsletter edition no. 90

The History of Playas del Coco – The reason why we did this newsletter in the first place is because our good friend Freddy Barahona just opened a new store called Solo Bueno in Playas del Coco.  Freddy was born and raised in Playas del Coco and his family settled in Playas del Coco in 1956 as one of the founding families of what is now a modern, thriving quintessential Costa Rica beach town.

The History of Playas del Coco

The concept of the Solo Bueno store is to only offer hand made, locally crafted goods.  He and his partner started originally producing hand rolled cigars with local tobacco leaf and opened Artesanos Cigars that many have enjoyed over the years.  Just recently they created Cata Chocolate and decided to move to a larger facility next door that could handle the Solo Bueno store, Artesanos Cigars and now their brand new bean to bar chocolate production facility right here in Playas del Coco.

Costa Rica FAQ's

While Freddy was explaining the concept of the new Solo Bueno Store, walking us through the Chocolate making process and giving us the tour of Artesanos Cigars rolling process we realized that he was a veritable treasure trove of stories about Playas del Coco – How it was formed, what life was like in the old days and how it has changed from then to now.
