Why is this home unique? Designed for Monterra's Rios del Sol.

A Canadian client together with our CR Architect 'Leon de Leon' have come up with this unique mountain home design that will be built in Phase 1. This home is actually a duplex maximizing its investment function both as a private family retreat and dual rental income potential. Even when the owner is using the home it can still be rented - Great Idea! And a beautiful home too.

What the 'Heck' is happing to Rios del Sol Phase 2 and 3?

This is a popular question these days as we have not written much about these 2 projects for a while.

The RDS phases 2,3 are definitely taking more time then planned but they are well worth the wait, keeping in mind that these river and forested areas are as beautiful as they are protected. It takes a dedicated developer to make certain that they are planned just right and have the ability to build in these regions. It also takes government permissions and with this we have delays - normal for Costa Rica, frustrating for those who are waiting to build.

GOOD NEWS! These lots will be some of the last of their kind in Costa Rica and after this final title process any 5000Sq2m + size properties will be hard to find anywhere! CR's development future is small lots - so for those lucky few who own acre properties, hold on to them! Once the final plans have been approved we will be writing more about Rio's del Sol Phases 2 and 3.

Costa Rica's Lifestyle.

A question we hear regularly is "what's it like to live in Costa Rica"?

Playa Tambor was definitely on the itinerary but other locations including: San Jose, Escazu, Santa Ana, Salitral, Arenal, La Fortuna, Jaco, Puntarenas, Mal Pais and Montezuma were also visited.
Being in popular media circles Sandra'a hears a lot about CR and essentially wanted to see first hand what Costa Rica has to offer to women and families. This was Sandra's first time in Costa Rica and we're looking forward to her fresh point's of view on our unique country.
