Why Follow Our BLOG?

At the top right of this page is a place to enter you email address and then 'SUBSCRIBE'. No other personal info is required, just your email and that's never shared with anyone or used for anything else.

Every time we create a new post an email is sent to you - that happens about 3 times per month. Every once in a while we post a skill testing question about Costa Rica and if you answer correctly we ship out a Monterra Developer's shirt & hat to the winner.

We like to keep everyone visiting our BLOG informed with the latest info as it happens. Our next skill testing question is Coming Very Soon!

Thank you,
Monterra Developers,

Our last question was: What is the only true way to tell the difference between a male and female Scarlett Macaw? HINT - not the eye color.

The Barcelo Resort located in Playa Tambor has one of the world's most successful Scarlet Macaw breeding programs. It's for this reason that the Tambor area has the largest population of Macaws in Costa Rica.

Monterra's 'Rios del Sol' road construction progress.

RDS's Phase 1 road construction is going as planned. The process is quite extensive with our current focus being on mitigation (protection of soil) and terracing. Most of the water registers are now installed with large underground pipes and drainage systems.
In this image you can see our use of rock and concrete that surface areas with steep inclines. This is an important process and is only found in quality mountain developments in Costa Rica - this process is necessary for safe traction and proper drainage.
Shortly we will be starting the electrical service.

They even made time for Surfing!

This week Monterra's West Coast sales team made their quarterly visit to the developments.
It was a face-paced, whirl-wind trip that included visits to Costa Rica's National Registry and the Ministry offices to gather further information about Costa Rica's development processes.
The trip was not all business though and our sales team also spent some well deserved time on Isla Tortuga and found some cool waves just off the famous surfing beach of Santa Teresa.

Thanks for the great trip girls!!
