Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: I grew up in the Midwest and have had a corporate life and entrepreneurial experience. Now just getting ready to enjoy retirement.....well at least less stressful activities.

Why Esparza:
Costa Rica, aptly described as the Switzerland of Latin America is truly a land of Pura Vida ! The biodiversity is incredible and with more than 30 micro climates, the variety of activities is incredible. Our villa, located on a mountain close to the Pacific coast enjoys warm days with cooling breezes and does not have the intense heat you find close to the northern beaches of Guanacaste Yet we are only 5 minutes away from the closest beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We can arrange private carnivals within the property, custom designed firework displays and an array of local entertainment, including some of the top Costa Rican groups, all on the grounds of the villa. Should you choose to arrive by helicopter, we feature our own heliport.
