Villas Tranquilas A Costa Rica Vacation Rental Gives Back to Local Manuel Antonio/Quepos Sustainable Development Community this Fall
Livingston, MT (PRWEB) September 10, 2009
As Congress turns their attention away from Mr. Obama’s environmental economic initiatives toward healthcare, one small business remains committed to the initiatives’ ideals and jump starts their mission toward environmental sustainability this fall. Villas Tranquilas, a Costa Rica Vacation Rental in Quepos/Manuel Antonio, joins a growing group of Central Pacific businesses and Costa Rica Hotels dedicated to sustainable Costa Rican Tourism.
Spearheaded in 2001 by local business owners to protect the endangered Mono Titi (squirrel) monkey, the Titi Conservation Alliance focuses conservation efforts on the Rio Naranjo Biological Corridor surrounding internationally famous Manuel Antonio National Park. The Rio Naranjo Biological Corridor’s two known locations for Mono Titi monkeys are separated by development making it extremely difficult for populations to thrive.
Villas Tranquilas sponsorship of the Titi Conservation Alliance gives tourists searching for Costa Rica vacations special insight into such local conservation issues. By educating tourists on local sustainable causes, it raises awareness about Costa Rica’s fragile Manuel Antonio National Park ecosystem and, by extension, the endangered Mono Titi Monkey.
Partnering with local Titi Alliance members, Villas Tranquilas strengthens a commitment to support business-to-business partnerships but also publicly recognizes their own charter to achieve sustainable development status through Costa Rica’s Certification of Sustainability. Villas Tranquilas begins the process of certification this fall with Titi Conservation Alliance guidance.
Through Villas Tranquilas guest donations, a portion of all proceeds will go directly to local education, reforestation, and conservation projects that impact the Manuel Antonio and Quepos Communities. Titi Conservation also offers opportunities for local businesses to help with reforestation of the Rio Naranjo Biological Corridor thus, off-setting carbon emissions and reducing each business’s carbon footprint.
Villas Tranquilas: a six acre rainforest retreat offers Costa Rica accommodations and vacation packages for travel to Manuel Antonio/Quepos Costa Rica.

San Jose, Costa Rica (PRWEB) August 11, 2009
Legendary US investor Henry Kaufman has invested heavily in residential Costa Rica real estate, as a sign of his confidence in the region. The new River Park project, based in Santa Ana will, he believes, add to the ‘upscale’ ambiance of the area.
According to with Mr Kaufman (who, in 2006, bought a third of downtown Tulsa for 100 million dollars); the sales drive for the new project will ‘be global’. The new Santa Ana condo project will house a senior community that can expect the very best in retirement living. The list of facilities already planned within the complex bode well for anyone wishing to obtain property there, with a large number of dynamic, health-focused options being available. Mr Kaufman’s aim is to enable his retiree clients to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle, with one of the best climates in the world on their doorstep.
Speaking about recent global investment problems in a video interview with Scott Oliver (author of ‘How to Buy Costa Rica Real Estate’), Mr Kaufman stated that he believes Costa Rica has gone against the grain, and has ‘successfully avoided any mistakes’. The cost of living in Costa Rica is significantly lower than it is in the United States, and this, along with the incredibly high standard of living in the area, will form the basis of the main sales thrust for the project.
When talking recently about the project, Mr Kaufman noted that real estate investors in Santa Ana, and in Costa Rica as a whole, were essentially onto a good thing. Banks protect investment, and taxes are not as prohibitive as they are elsewhere in the world. What’s more, any retirees who choose to live in Costa Rica can expect to not have to pay taxes on their pension income, or indeed their social security income. Key benefits like these explain why large scale investors like Mr Kaufman choose to put their money into the country. Mr Kaufman joked about the massively advantageous tax situation in Costa Rica, saying that property taxes were ‘so low’ that he may ‘object’.
The presence of Mr Kaufman among the investor list in Costa Rica confirms that the area is becoming a hot spot for foreign capital. He thinks anyone wishing to retire should ‘choose Costa Rica…absolutely’ and that the social life and climate are wholly suitable for retirees. Mr Kaufman himself established part-time residency after being in the area for just two days. In the interview, Mr Kaufman stated that he believes this is an ‘opportune’ time as regards Costa Rica, citing an expected 12% annual return on investment.
Santa Ana is located west of the capital city of San Jose. It is home to a large number of multinational companies, as well as a bustling retail hub. It is well known for its fantastic health care facilities, and has one of the best hospitals in Central America. Most expatriates from the US, Canada and Europe are choosing to live in this part of the world.
