Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Ty & Cindy are two Canadian expats who desired to leave the cold winters behind and live in a warm climate. Costa Rica offered all we were looking for with it's perfect climate, excellent health care, great people and low cost of living.

Why the Owner Chose Santiago de Puriscal:
After exploring Costa Rica we discovered that the climate suited us the best here. The altitude and temperature are ideal without the need for air conditioning or heating. Our Tico neighbours are friendly and helpful. The location is perfect with only a hour's drive east to the airport and an hour's drive west to the Pacific Ocean. The days are warm and sunny and the evenings cool down to a comfortable temperature for sleeping. All the amenities we need are close by. The nearest city, Santiago De Puriscal, has everything we need to make our lives comfortable. Excellent doctors, dentists, professionals, markets, modern grocery stores, restaurants, banks, and building supplies.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The breath-taking views of the country, ocean, mountains and tropical plants never get old! The clean fresh air rejuvenates! We have an abundant supply of clean, potable water from a deep well drilled in 2013.
