About the owner: Joe is an insurance broker and Liz works for a builder in Canada. They have been married for 37 years and have 3 children. Some of their interests include music, golf, reading, traveling, and spending quality time with family and friends.
Why the Owner Chose San Ramon: After looking at Florida, Mexico, and the Domenican Republic, we felt that Costa Rica had so much more to offer. The country is so beautiful, and very easy to travel through. There are many micro climates to suit individual needs and an abundance of things to do. In 1949 the country abolished their army and invested all their money into education and health care, therefore they have a well educated and happy population. Recent surveys show that Costa Ricans are one of the happiest people in the world. Costa Rica has a very low crime rate compared to other countries in Central & South America. They also have a longer life expectancy because of the lifestyle they live - Pura Vida!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our house is just 5 minutes from San Ramon, which is approximately 35 minutes west of the San Jose Airport, and is very central to everything. San Ramon has a hospital, university, shopping, churchs, movie theatres, and best of all, the weather is fabulous! Because San Ramon is 3500 ft. above sea level, the average daytime temperature all year round is 25 celcius, or 78 farenheit. Evenings are usually a little bit cooler, but very pleasant. There is no need to have air conditioning or heating in our home. If you are interested in some more heat, just drive 40 minutes west to the beach where the temperatures can reach 35 celcius plus. Our location is central to as many activities and attractions you can imagine. Poas Volcano, La Paz Waterfall & Gardens, La Fortuna & Lake Arenal, San Luis Zip-Lining, Carera National Rainforest, Sarchi, Tortuga Island, and San Jose are all a reasonable drive away.
