Thank you for visiting ‘Tank Tops Flip Flops’

Hola! Welcome to Paradise. My name is Michael Simons - the Owner/Broker of 3 major real estate franchises in the Papagayo Region - RE/MAX Tres Amigos in Playa Hermosa , RE/MAX Prestige Ocean Properties in Playa Panama and RE/MAX Ocean Village in Playas del Coco.

The majority of people interested in buying real estate in Costa Rica tend to have many of the same questions so I took the time to answer them in detail here in a fun and informative way. This site contains a tremendous amount of information for you and allows me to express my views and pass along wisdom gained while living and doing business in the tropics. Hope you can join us. Pura Vida!

I will respond to your questions immediately with an email or personal phone call.

See you here in Paradise!

Tank Tops Flip Flops Newsletter edition no. 44

I think it was Liza Minnelli who once said, “Dogs are better than children, because they won’t grow up to write a book about you.” I couldn’t agree more, which is obviously why I have 7; Dogs that is, not kids.  At least I haven’t gotten that infamous call yet; “his name is Junior, he is 13 and he needs a bike.”  So I figured that I might as well start this story myself, and lay it all on the line, which is how this Newsletter thing came about.  When you talk about your own faults, it’s not as bad as someone else throwing you under the bus.  This way, when someone does write a book about me later, it won’t faze anyone.  “Michael Simons is this, that and the other thing,” people will say, “Oh I already know that, I have been reading Tank Tops and Flip Flops for years.”

Costa Rica Frequently Asked Questions

But I always have had a way with animals, and sometimes I do believe I am Dr. Doolittle.  Just the other day, I was driving home, and there was this gorgeous Weimaraner in the middle of the road, just standing there.  Cars were flying by, without even slowing down, and he was just in another world, oblivious to the danger around him.  I turned my truck into both lanes and put it into park, so that everyone was forced to stop, and got out for a little one on one.  Dozens of cars were backed up, obviously not very happy, but I could care less.  I wasn’t about to let this beautiful creature get run over by a bus.

Over the last six months we have been working on a video about Costa Rica that we think is one of the best ever produced.  Tell us what you think by commenting on this post.

Please take five minutes and watch this epic video – it will completely blow your mind!

Be sure to watch it to the very end, on a big screen and with the volume cranked up.

Words do not express how lucky we all are to live and work in this incredible country, but maybe this will give you an idea.  Thanks for keeping in touch and I hope to see you down here in paradise soon.

Stop procrastinating!
