Family day at Panama Beach

During my 31 years in Costa Rica I have visited dozens of beaches, always trying to find the
best one based on the color of the sand and the clarity of the water! I always wondered why
so many Costa Rican families visited Playa Panama in the Gulf of Papagayo when there are
so many other attractive beaches nearby with lighter sand and clear blue water.

My Life in Costa Rica Part 5

My work as the general manager of the Nakuti Resort in Playa Panama beach, Costa Rica ended in 2003.(See “My life in Costa Rica Part 4”).

I spent around 6 weeks in Atenas near San Jose, enjoying quality time with my children.

Nice Job Officers!!

For many years, the Police Force in Costa Rica didn’t have a very good reputation. They had a very poor budget, bad administration and a lack of well-trained police officers. Sometimes police were coming to a 911 call hours after a crime was committed.

What to do with the kids in Papagayo?

The Costa Rican “Spring Break” is a 2-week period in July. The students here love to go to some of the beaches which we have in abundance. This year my eldest daughter Bianca (who lives in Atenas close to San Jose) came to visit us here in Guanacaste (particularly her little sister Samantha who is almost 3 years old).

Five days away from Paradise

I really do not travel a lot! There are a couple of main reasons for this. The first is because I live in Paradise already in a tropical beach community with a the “Pura Vida” lifestyle among locals (Ticos), ex-pats (Gringos and Canadians) and tourists (from around the world).

The thing that I like about living in the Papagayo region is that most of the time you feel like you´re surrounded by a tropical rustic environment. The people are humble and simple, and they live their life in a slow pace compare to the North Americans.

My Life in Costa Rica Part 4

My first year as a General Manager of a 4 stars hotel in San Jose was great but I was still travelling every day back and forth to my little home town of Atenas. It was too bad the four lane highway that now goes to Caldera wasn´t built at that time because it would have saved me 20 minutes off my ride instead of the 40 minutes from the old road that goes through the Santamaria airport and the little town La Garita.
