PACIFICO Costa Rica Coronavirus Aid June 11, 2020

This week we partnered with PACIFICO Costa Rica who funded the entire cost of feeding and providing much needed supplies to 100 families in the local communities of Sapal, Santa Rita and Guardia. Once again we have been blessed with much needed donations to continue aiding needy families week after week.  As you can see we are like a well oiled machine and what started as reluctant and embarrassed looks on the peoples faces have now changed to relief and gratitude.  To all that have helped no matter how large or small – it has been a godsend to these hard working folks and they really and truly appreciate it – you can just tell.

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.
