Costa Rica Renewable Energy Solutions–Solaris Energia Renovable–EXPATS in Paradise with Glen Nickerson

Costa Rica renewable energy expert Glen Nickerson

Glen Nickerson originally set up shop in Costa Rica in the Central Valley in 2006.  As he got to know the country and start expanding his business he soon found out that it was much better to live and do business at the beach areas.  He fell in love with the Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste area and bought a nice condo within walking distance to the beach.  He has continuously looked at ways that he could bring in his engineering know how into a practical energy saving business in Costa Rica.  We are glad he and his wife are members of the community and look forward to see their business grow.  Congratulations Glen on being another successful EXPAT in paradise.  We had Glen replace all the light bulbs in our RE/MAX Tres Amigos office with energy efficient LED bulbs and we have seen a huge savings on our monthly electric bill.  Thanks again Glen!

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.
