Ironman 70.3 Playas del Coco Costa Rica

Written by Michael Simons on . Posted in Costa Rica Living, Guanacaste Tourism, Playas del Coco, RE/MAX Tres Amigos

IronMan 70.3 Playas del Coco Costa Rica was the first event of its kind in Costa Rica and the IronMan organizers loved our area so much that they are extending it for another 2 years.

Ironman 70.3 Playas del Coco Costa Rica

The top Costa Rican and the pride of Guanacaste was Leonardo Chacon who placed 4th against fierce international competition.   A seasoned American Ironman competitor came in first.  For many old timers in Playas del Coco it was an emotional scene to see an event of such international esteem showcase what we all know is the untapped potential of this area.

We cheered on and followed many of our friends who finished this extremely difficult event.  Check out the video of some highlights.

Top Agent Magazine Costa Rica

I am very honored to be chosen as a Featured Agent in Top Agent Magazine.  When I came to Costa Rica I had the same dream that many of my clients have – to create a better life in paradise.  Little did I know, through lots of hard work and dedication, that I would become a Featured Agent in one of the most prestigious Real Estate industry publications.  Some of the best agents in the world have been featured in this magazine so I feel humbled to be in this special group.  But most of all I hope that this honor signifies that I have been able to help so many of my clients realize their dreams here in our beautiful Costa Rica.
