We're getting ready for the high season rentals which have really picked up in the last two weeks. NOW is the time to book your winter vacation. While I was thinking about this it brought to mind the slow motion political train wreck we're witnessing in the US right now. Why? Because a number of really smart people want to do double duty on their vacation this year. First and foremost is some well deserved R&R in the sun and surf of Costa Rica. But the second reason is to start looking at Costa Rica as a possible safe haven "just in case" investment outside of the United States. So if this has grabbed your attention & interest, read on for a very special offer!
It's been a wild month in the U.S. with stock market investors riding the roller coaster as concerns about European sovereign investors have sent ripple effects through the global markets. Who knows where this will go and how our government and banks will respond. Is this 2008 Redux? maybe...maybe not... but what I do know is that more and more people are contacting us at Del Pacifico about using international real estate as an alternative hard asset investment to say gold or the Devil's metal, Silver. But by owning a condo overseas in a luxury resort, you get a special dividend that is priceless. Unlike gold, you and your family can actually create memories while you enjoy your investment in an ocean view condo. Is now the time to finally look seriously at diversifying your net worth internationally? If now is not the time, I don't know when would be the right time. We've got protesters "occupying Wall Street" with an "eat the rich" message that says anyone earning over $250,000 a year is a quasi-criminal and needs to pay more in taxes. This isn't a new message, but the "attack the middle class" aspect is alarming.
Over the past 20 years, many of my old friends like Bill Bonner of Agora Publishing, Porter Stansberry of Stansberry Research and Michael Checkan of Asset Strategies International have been warning of the collision course that the U.S. government was on with the realities of too much debt. Do you think the days of reckoning are finally at hand? If you do, then what can you actually do about it? Here is a simple pro-active common sense strategy that I'd like you to consider: Why don't you come down and visit us in Costa Rica and check out why it's called " the Switzerland of Central America"? Even better we'll give you a very special rate to stay at either stay a condo at Del Pacifico or at our beach front hotel Alma Del Pacifico! We'll also help coordinate the details of your trip. Spa treatments? Marlin Fishing? Surfing lessons? Rain Forest Tours? Golf? Whatever you want to do, we can make the arrangements. You can get to the Pacific coast from the San Jose International Airport (SJO) in just 90 minutes. Take 3 or 4 days and do your own "due diligence." Check the quality of our construction, tour the local area. See first-hand the exceptional opportunities at Del Pacifico! Want to see the competition? No problem. You can also rent a car (about $40 a day)and perhaps tour other real estate developments in the region such as the Los Sueños Resort and Marina near Jaco beach (30 minutes north and with over 600 houses and condos sold in the last 10 years) or for the much more adventuresome "Indiana Jones" types (risk seeking) perhaps head south to Hacienda Matapalo near Dominical (45 minutes south) or even Pacific Lots in Ojochal (90 minutes south).
Everyone always asks me "Why Costa Rica rather than Ecuador, Argentina or Nicaragua?" Aside from being much safer and closer to the States, one of the reasons is that it has established a very strong Middle Class encouraging over 250 international companies to open up operations in free trade zones. Together these international free trade zone companies accounted for nearly $2.9 billion in sales last year or 8% of the GDP while employing nearly 60,000 Costa Ricans. That's about 5% of the Costa Rican citizens. Intel is the largest of these employers which has made Costa Rica an Internet Technology hub for Central America (and given it the nickname "the Silicon Valley of Latin America"). In fact we're seeing more and more Silicon Valley types coming to vacation at Del Pacifico or Alma Del Pacifico and also look at investments while with us.
So here is your action plan:
1) Look at your vacation plans
2) See if staying at our 4 star beach front hotel and spa or in a condo at a super price fits your plans
3) Call our US office (410) 727-6444 and say you want to discuss the "Special Deal with Barry." I'll need to hear from you by November 10th to get this offer.
