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.

Playa Hermosa Community Clean Up 2019

Playa Hermosa Community Clean Up 2019

We are sending this note out to everyone to encourage you to participate in some way in the Playa Hermosa Community Clean Up events this Monday, April 22nd, 2019.  This day – April 22nd – is significant for two reasons.  For one it is Earth Day so it is very appropriate to make an effort to clean up our community and beach.  And coincidentally it is just after Semana Santa (Easter Week) when the entire country comes to the beach and unfortunately leave a lot of trash behind.

The first event is the actual Community Clean Up.  Meet in front of the Hermosa Heights Fountain at 6:00 AM Monday morning for the Street Clean Up or meet on the Beach at the end of the 2nd Beach Entrance at 7:00 AM for the Beach Clean Up.  Everything will be provided for you – Gloves, Bags and Water.  Just come ready to work and bring a refillable water bottle to keep rehydrated.

Tank Tops Flip Flops Newsletter edition no. 126

This newsletter is the first in a new series where we present the story of a local business or the unique story of a local person as we have many times before.  We are trying to streamline how we do these newsletters so we can do more of them and to give those of you a first person view into what it is like to live, work and volunteer down here in paradise.  We think these stories are very important to tell so we created this new format to bring the information to you.

Hope Fellowship Church – Wendy and Stu Pike

Our Good friends Wendy and Stu Pike bought a piece of paradise, built their dream home and have now been living here happily full time for 5 years.  They wanted to get involved in the local community when they moved here and found Hope Fellowship to be a good fit for them.  They have made lots of friends and are deeply involved in a number of the volunteer outreach programs and wanted to make sure that everyone is aware that there are great opportunities to get involved in the community and give back to those in need.
