Hola Everyone from Costa Rica
Playa Hermosa is Greening UP! 
Rainy season or Green season has arrived in the mountains and at the beaches.  After 6 months of warm dry summer we are now entering 6 months of a great variety of daytime  weather and of course beautiful beach or mountain sunsets.  This is is the tropical phase of our tropical dry forest climate. Contrary to popular belief the rains this time of year are not all day.  They are usually in the afternoon or evening.  So you can enjoy a great morning and afternoon then sit on the deck, have a cocktail, and watch the lightning show and enjoy the rain.  We have had over 17 inches of rain during the month of May here at the mountains and everything is luscious  and green.  Evenings are cool and sunsets are incredible as the sun's rays catch the water vapour in the air.  The beaches have had slightly less rain but still are becoming lush and green as mother nature's paint brush changes the landscape daily - a vast turn around from April. 
Latest updates on the COVID-19 problem are on my blog.  Borders are closed in Costa Rica until July 1, 2020; however that date is expected to be pushed back.  So far to date we have had 1,157 cases of COVID-19.  So far 685 people have recovered.  Unfortunately 10 deaths.  Overall for a country of 5 million plus people, the numbers are very good.  The remaining 460 plus people with COVID are being monitored. 

Please refer to MY BLOG for more information on the restrictions in place to allow re-opening of the country.
General Real Estate Market Update
Not surprising really, but during this time we are seeing property sell.  Buyers who have been here before and love Costa Rica are going on line and buying via video and or virtual tours via FaceTime, WhatsApp or other social network options.  If you see a property in our area that you are interested in, please let me know if you would like to connect with me to do a social media virtual tour.

With the issues up North, a lot of people are looking for an alternative place to live and Costa Rica certainly is a great option.  You can pick your weather, people are friendly, government is stable, property prices are reasonable with lots of selection from $45,000 condos to multi million dollar homes. The cost of living in Costa Rica is certainly not as cheap as it was but it is still reasonable and why not live in a country that produces an abundance of fruits and vegetables!  This is still Hawaii of the 50's and you can buy a beautiful ocean view home or condo for one half  the price of a similar home in Hawaii or California.
