Welcome to Paradise
It's been 10 years since Lolly and I first visited Costa Rica- what an incredible journey! On our first trip we stayed at Villa Caletas, Los Sueños & La Mariposa in Manuel Antonio. Little did we know that the sleepy village of Esterillos would become Del Pacifico & the focal point of our lives.
Back then the drive from Manuel Antonio to Del Pacifico was an easy two hours and you wouldn't venture to do it at night. Now it's a 25 minute jaunt and we'll hit the restaurants in Manuel Antonio for dinner. But more importantly, over the past 10 years, as Tom Friedman has said, "the world has become flat." The sleepy village of Esterillos is now wired to the rest of the world and we have high-speed Internet, cable TV and cell phone coverage which puts Del Pacifico just a dial tone away from Atlanta, New York, or Los Angeles.
It's also incredible that over the past 10 years Del Pacifico as grown from a dream drafted on the back of a single piece of paper into a real community. This year the addition of the Alma del Pacifico hotel and setting up a long-term partnership with RockResorts were both important steps in our long-term strategic plan. Going forward, tourism has returned at an all-time high to Costa Rica and we are witnessing more and more "average Americans" looking to diversify some of their net worth into paradise and outside of the United States. Come visit us at our beach front hotel and spa- you can call us to take advantage of special summer rates. Additionally, we have condos and houses available for daily or weekly rentals. Of course there is also the opportunity to own as well is rent. I'm always available to talk to people interested in learning more about the logic of investing in international real estate and sharing our vision for Del Pacifico. Please feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail.
