PLEASE NOTE!!!!!!!CONTRARY TO WHAT IT SAYS ABOVE I'M IN MANUEL ANTONIO NOT QUEPOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Over the years, I have met some wonderful people here and made friendships that will last forever.
I'm a Leo, I like people, I empathetic and I love to laugh.
Living here has given me the opportunity to be one with nature, spend time at the beach and hang out with other like minded folks who came, fell in love and stayed in one of the special places on the planet.
I'm a reader and fiction works for me (Lee Child, with Jack Reacher are favorites).
I like to meet my guests but then stay out of their way unless needed, they are not here to see me, they are here to see Monkeys, Sloths, Toucans, Dolphins, Whales and all that Costa Rica has to offer.
Did I mention I like kids, and they seem to like me.
I guess you could say I'm a people person , and I'm looking forward to meeting you.
Pura Vida is the motto here, Pure Life which basically means live in the moment.
