Niños del Sol ECO School Playas del Coco, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

One of the first questions that our Non Retiree clients have is “Are there good Schools in your area of Costa Rica?”  The answer has always been yes and now we have another great option for parents looking for a school close by Playas del Coco.  The founders of Niños del Sol ECO School are Joshua Wittman and Miranda Abbott Wittman.  They bring a refreshing energy and great attitude along with a different style of teaching that takes advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings of the Papagayo Area to give their students a totally new perspective.  ECO stands for Earth, Community and Ocean.  Instead of following a traditional regimented school environment they believe that teaching should happen to fit the pace and interests of each student and incorporate outside the classroom experiences that are fortified with in classroom work.  This blends quite well in a beach community where you find families coming from all over the world with different levels of education and language skills. 

Check out this video where Joshua and Miranda go into detail of the School’s approach to learning and give us their backgrounds and what inspired them to develop their unique teaching styles

Students range in age from 5 to 12 and they will accept students with learning disabilities.

Taste of Papagayo 2018 – Hotel La Puerta del Sol and Garden Bar

First of all we want to apologize for not posting more newsletters lately but in all honesty we are busy selling real estate and so often these things get pushed down the priority list.  Tank Tops Flip Flops has also been actively on the ground doing community fundraising events through our Custom one off design T Shirt sales that, with the help of all of you, have raised a tremendous amount of money for our small but tight knit community we call the Papagayo.  Check out our Tank Tops Flip Flops Facebook Page to see the various community events that we have gotten behind and that you can be a part of in the future.

Taste of Papagayo 2018

One of the projects we were recently involved with was the Taste of Papagayo 2018.  If you did not attend it was a wildly successful food tasting festival with 18 different Papagayo Area Restaurants, 3 live bands and a whole lot of good fun.  The event was hosted at Hotel La Puerta del Sol and The Garden Bar and organized by Devon Pickering and Michele Simmons.  Tank Tops and Flip Flops created unique T Shirts just for the event of which part of the proceeds went towards supporting the Coco Community Project.
