Costa Rica is noted for ecotourism and a great place to see exotic birds, sloths, monkeys and amazing rain forests. The government has gone to great lengths to protect the environment in Costa Rica. Ensuring that real estate development is done with regards to the environment has helped to preserve the beauty and nature that everyone wants to come and see. This piece is about the steps necessary to undertake development. I've posted it to show the depth of work that it takes to do good development and why there are so few that have stayed in business. We are proud of our 27 year history and glad there are protections in place to preserve this great country. Many developers who thought it was easy have since gone out of business when bank financing was not sufficient to keep them in business long enough to get through this bureacracy to complete the developments they'd started. The fact that we are debt free and don't rely on borrowed money is a great part of our success. The time and expense to complete all of these steps is onerous. This piece helps understand how expensive it is to do fully permitted development, meeting all the environmental and municipal standards that are in place to insure that developers are not harming the environment nor building shoddy developments that will burden the municipality down the road.

People have been getting quite a surprise when driving down the coast in southern Costa Rica. There among the toucans, sloths and macaws is another rare bird in this area, a cosmic bowling alley. The Costa Ballena region has been amazing people with its bio diversity for years. But recently some new inhabitants have appeared, causing a migration of a different sort.

Yup, just like I keep telling everyone, it's only a matter of time before everyone wants to be where we are. Travel and Leisure Magazine wrote this past month that the Bahia Ballena Coast is in the top two places to visit in 2013 and HGTV just showed up to our little town of Ojochal to film an episode of House Hunters International, trying to find the perfect home for a retiring north American couple looking for real estate in Costa Rica. The baby boomers are coming, we had 6 sales in the last two weeks and all our Costa Rica Property Tours are selling out.
