—Vida y tiempo—
When I started Residencias Los Jardines, I started writing a weekly newsletter -determined to tell all the good, bad, and the ugly. I knew some readers would be interested in the construction process. I expected others might be interested in the lifestyle of two people who had decided to live outside the box. For others, the adventures of Lita, the parrot and the cat took on an entertainment saga all its own.
Residencias Los Jardines is finished. We periodically have re-sales and rental availability. Some readers may be interested in this information.
rentals & sales
Paradisus Condos / Rohrmoser
Each of the units consists of two bedrooms / two bathrooms, and a large living/dining/kitchen area. The floor plan of each of these units has eliminated the optional "den / office" divider. The result is a larger area offering more flexible furniture arrangements while still maintaining the option of including an office area. At 105m2 plus two parking spots each and storage locker, they offer a great opportunity for someone seeking views, security, central location, and first class, all round living...

My World Righted Itself... and my butt found the hammock. I got caught up on paperwork, filing, sorting, organizing, etc. and then the corporate client's checks bounced... didn't expect this from a Fortune 500 company but it did happen. I suspect they did not transfer the funds from the holding account to the checking account... I'll have another go at it next week. In the future, we will do wire transfers... Few things are easy in CR and fewer things actually happen the first time around. That is the way life is in the land of "pura vida". The third corporate rental will occur today... I am not in charge of that -officially- but...
News Items of the Week
1. Rice Scam: the subsidy was originally billed as time for the locals to become more efficient. In reality, that never happened... they just got fatter at the expense of all Ticos. and here is the reason and the reason why the import protection will continue: "Many of the country’s leaders are invested in the rice production business as well as sugar cane."
2. CR and the USA / US $$: the big variable is the colon / USD exchange rate and the effect to CR's free trade zones which have created most of the new jobs and the Trump administration re. foreign trade. This year will see the politicos vying for position leading up to next year's election. The previous administration and the current administration are generally considered failures... but it's hard to be an eagle when you come from a flock of political turkeys.
