It's all about Great People...

I distinctly remember standing on bare ground trying to visualize 20 condos with an awesome pool surrounded by ridiculously thick tropical vegetation, the vision to me was quite clear... some people just shook their heads and questioned if I've been in the sun too long. But there were many good friends who supported me in the early stages when I was still kicking dirt, scratching my head and rambling on about color schemes, palm trees and relocating my hammock poolside. What really completed this dream project was the ever-broadening circle of friends that we have had the pleasure of seeing every year. Rosa and I are proud that Villas Las Ventanas has become an Oasis full of wonderful enlightened people who make the magic of the gold coast come alive. 
Thank you all, and let this magic continue.

Throughout our blogs you find them seasoned with the odd Fun Fact, here's out first one:
Fun Fact #1: 
Ok, so now you’re navigating around potholes in your rental car with the A/C cranked to “meat locker cold", you’re probably heading back to Las Ventanas from a memorable day spent on the beach, touring a national park, surfing, zip lining… whatever the amazing adventure was. At some point on the road, you’ll pass thru a small pueblo with a soccer game in progress. Whoa…. Now this would be your cue to pull over, order an ice cold one from the cantina and join the crowd in cheering these guys on. In Costa Rica the national sport is played with intensity on all levels and the quality of soccer in the small rural towns is very exciting to watch.
Along your way, give these unscheduled stops a chance. They just, might be the most memorable.
