I have lived in Costa Rica for the last 20 years and the quality of life that comes from living here is unbeatable. Here, I am able to get out every day and enjoy my beautiful surroundings. I love to surf in the ocean, play football (soccer), spend time with my kids, and just sit outside reading. I especially enjoy walking on the beach with my best friend…my beautiful wife. There are plenty of opportunities here to enjoy all the moments that life has to offer.

The culture of Costa Rica has been a source of inspiration to me. On one of my road trips, I saw an older gentleman with a large sack of potatoes on his back. I offered him a ride and he declined. I passed again, six hours later, and he was still walking. When I stopped to ask him why he didn’t allow me to help, he replied that although he is 80 years old, doing things like this has made him healthier and stronger. The Pura Vida lifestyle is so amazing, that the Nicoya Peninsula is one of the world’s five blue zones.

As a real estate agent for the last 5 years in Guanacaste, it is my job to show you what an amazing area this is, and to help you find the perfect place to live here in Costa Rica. I truly believe that you can have the life in paradise you’ve always dreamed about. The regions is great, with many residential communities that offer security, unbelievable amenities, and the location close to the beach. A perfect place to raise a family or retire to. Who knows…you can find your piece of paradise today and maybe…years from now I will see you looking your best at 80 years old, walking along and enjoying life.
