Wide Open Space in Costa Rica

Wide open spaces

At the beginning of this year, January 1, almost everyone I know had huge expectations. Business was booming, the economy was on fire, stock markets at an all-time high, unemployment at 50 year lows and the predictions were insane. Everyone was making more money than they ever had, their businesses were at peak performance, tourism numbers were through the roof and life could not be any better. It had been an absolute banner year, and the sky was the limit. Personally, I was planning on having the best 12 months I ever had and most of my agents had the same goals as well. The first 60 days, were record breakers for real estate in Costa Rica, and it looked like nothing could stop this bullet train. Then the conductor pulled into the COVID-19 station; the locomotive was put into park; the engines were shut down; and everyone had to get off and go home. The globe became silent.

Now here we are, 8 weeks later, and Costa Rica is one of the leaders in the world, in its handling of the virus. Countries all over the planet are pointing to us as the exception to the rule; how we have contained it and lowered the curve; at the astounding low numbers of active cases; as we start to reopen our economy. Most countries and or cities, with 3 to 5 Million inhabitants are seeing thousands of deaths, compared to our mind boggling number of only 10. People are taking notice, and we are flooded with inquires and phone calls. So many individuals rehashing the same comments; I should have bought; why didn’t we just come; why did we cancel our trip; why did I procrastinate; wish we were there! Well, hindsight is 20-20 they say, and it just happens to arrive in the year 2020.

Music for Coronavirus Aid

Music for Coronavirus Aid

Many of you have seen Fatiniza perform at one of the many live music venues in Playas del Coco and the Papagayo Region.  Unfortunately we are not able to enjoy live music for the moment and certainly live performers are one of the most hardest hit sectors of the economy.  Is spite of all that Fatiniza decided to write a song that would bring some happiness and joy to everyone and at the same time help out those in dire need during these trying times.  

We at Tank Tops Flip Flops have met Fatiniza and her team at various live music festivals and shows while doing our local charity work selling Tank Tops Flip Flops apparel.  So when she saw that we were doing coronavirus food drives for our local area she contacted us to see if she could help.  So the idea of releasing a new song and giving all the proceeds to coronavirus charities was born.  You will see the links to be able to purchase the song below.  Approximately 50% of the proceeds will be split between two local charities – Tank Tops Flip Flops and Junto por Guanacaste.  This will cover the area from Playas del Coco and surrounding communities to the Potrero and Brasilito areas.  So check out the song and please download it to help out.  69 cents!
