Toys for Tots 2022

For many of us it has been a great year of hard work and good results.  We are eternally thankful for that.  The fact remains that the economy in Guanacaste has not returned back to pre pandemic levels and the lower income families are still suffering from high unemployment and poverty.

There is nothing better to bring some Christmas cheer by seeing the smile on a kids face when they get a new toy.  Now it is time for the community to come together and spread some Christmas cheer and participate in the hugely popular TOYS FOR TOTS program coordinated by the Guanacaste Veterans Association.

BUY OR BUILD in Costa Rica? – Should I Buy an Existing House or Build My Dream Home?

Whether you buy an already built home or purchase a lot and build is entirely up to your personal circumstances and desires.  Our goal is to give you all sides of the issue so you can make the best decision for you.

Having said that, the short answer to the age-old question of whether to buy a lot and build or buy an existing home is quite simple – If you can find an existing home that fits your needs and works with your budget than BUY IT!  After all, the reason you are coming down to Costa Rica is to slide into the hassle-free lifestyle and enjoy your time in Pura Vida land.
